How would you define yourself in 5 words?
Trustworthy, auto ironic, loyal, determined, lazy
How would you describe your style?
I lead a normal boring life so my stile is also pretty simple, I love fashion but I’m not the freak chic type. I pay a lot of attention to details and like to wear many accessories.
Who or what is your biggest influence?
I think the biggest influence about fashion nowadays is the internet, there are a lot of blogs, pages and shopping retailers online where you can easily be inspired. It’s incredible how the web is affecting the way people dress, it’s almost a revolution.
Matthew Bellamy walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say? Why is he here? What do you do?
He enters the room and says: ‘’Hola muchachos’’. He happened to be here because Muse are touring in Italy, I walk towards him and say: ‘’Hey Matt, great show last night, give my best to Kate’’
Deadlines are not my thing so I’ll go for "Time is running out" by Muse.
I worry a lot about my exams, and that’s all I’m sharing!

What style tips, do's and don'ts have you learnt?
I’ve learnt that is important to have a ‘’balanced’’ outfit, I mean if you wear something too showy try to match it with a simpler one. Sometimes there is a thin line between OK and too much. Personally I wouldn’t wear short bandage dress or shorts with heels that exceed 10 cm.
Tell us how you put together an outfit...
I get my outfit ideas while I’m doing my hair or putting makeup. Everybody likes to put on stuff that was bought recently, right? So if I have a new skirt I try to picture what could match with it. When I go back to my room I have it all figured out what I’m going to wear.
Breakfast at Tiffany's or Sex and the City?
I’d rather drink cocktails with my girlfriends than have breakfast in front of a shop all by myself.
If someone needed you to help them start a whole new wardrobe, where would you take them and what would you get?
Zara of course, it offers the latest trends at a very reasonable price. I would get blazers and heels
