When asked how London style differs from Parisian style, she told British Elle, "I find Londoners are much freer in their style. More eccentric. But perhaps that's a cliché, having never lived there I could be looking at it through rose-tinted glasses. It does all seem more fun to me though, sometimes Parisians are a little too serious and self conscious. Parisians can be chic but that too is another cliché. Anyway styles are good as a reference but I prefer not to pay too much attention to them."
