Author and presenter Michelle Visage opens up her wardrobe to Gaby Soutar

What’s the last piece of clothing you bought?

Some dresses from Zara on Oxford Street in London.

What are you addicted to buying?

Jeans and trousers in general. I LOVE them.

Best ever bargain?

I am a massive bargain hunter so my list of bargains goes on and on and on.

Who has great style?

Style is objective, akin to art, so it varies. I think Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and Victoria Beckham all have an aesthetic that I admire but I also love extreme risk takers like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.

Name your favourite high street shop.

Zara, River Island and of course, Primark.

Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about?

To me, even what the glossies would consider a fashion disaster are still self expression. One thing to always remember however: NEVER bleach your own hair.

What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?

I don’t have one. I have a serious clothes addiction so I have things in my closet that I bought on my first trip to the UK when I was 13 years of age. I don’t get rid of things easily, but....that said, I suppose that perfectly fitting pair of jeans can never go wrong, and of course my Marc Jacobs Incognito bag.
