Woohoo it's part 3 of our A-Z of Beauty Q+A's! From Xiao Wen Ju chirping "pigment!" whilst covered in tons of the purple glittery stuff to Natalie Westling smouldering with barefaced freckles and starry earrings, this next lot are some of the cutest and the coolest of the bunch. While Isamaya Ffrench gave them each an arty make-over, we snuck behind the scenes to discover Caroline de Maigret's French fancies, Ola Rudnicka's love of BIG eyes and Malaika Firth's inspirational messages.
Who is the most beautiful person in the world?
Ava Gardner. She was really someone who I felt empowered femininity.
Who is your favourite make-up artist?
Pat McGrath. First of all she makes you feel beautiful, which surprisingly is rather rare in this business, and her inspirations are endless. She has such a vast knowledge of fashion, art and history that she has so much to draw from and always creates something truly original.
What’s your definition of beauty?
Confidence. Someone who believes in themselves and can make you fall for it.
Which photographer have you had the best experiences with and the most respect for throughout your career?
Steven Meisel. He understands fashion more than anyone else. His ability to reference, to draw from his knowledge is unbeatable. Culturally he has the talent to mix all that with fashion.
What is the future of fashion?
Anthony Vacarello. He is very interested in women and being half-Italian and half-Belgian, he has an interesting mix of rigour and sexiness. I think he is the perfect example of a mixing of cultures, which to me, is the future of everything, not just fashion.
What was your nickname at school?
Caroline wears top Christopher Kane.
