ENJOY YOUR STYLE: Tell us something about yourself.
AUDREY LEIGHTON ROGERS: I am fascinated with the 60s and all sorts of poetry. Currently find myself addicted to pastel shades and furs. I live on coffee and I speak Spanish.
EYS: If you could raid anyone's closet, and have all their clothes magically fit you, whose closet would you raid and why? You can specify a year, too, e.g. "Bjork's, in 1995"
ALR: It would have to be Catherine Baba's wardrobe. I used to have dreams that she was my grandmother.
EYS: What role does fashion play in your life?
ALR: Fashion is probably the most powerful creative role in my life, after writing. Clothes are a means of self-expression, potentially the most practiced art form in contemporary society, and so I guess fashion has developed as one of my favourite art forms.
EYS: What would you like people to know about you that they don't?
ALR: I'm obsessive compulsive.
EYS: What are your favorite sources for style inspiration, in general?
ALR: Lookbook provides endless ideas as well a handful of my favourite blogs. Vogue Paris editorials are inspirational as well.
EYS: You can only save one beauty product from your bathroom/bedroom. Which one do you save?
ALR: Mascara, every time. I was cursed with incredibly short eyelashes.
EYS: Complete this sentence: "I'm in love with...because..."
ALR: I am in love with London because eccentricity is met with such awe-inspiring approval.
EYS: Complete this sentence: "I wish..."
ALR: I wish I could have shared a bottle of booze with Edie Sedgwick.
EYS: If you could kick anyone's ass, in public, whose ass would you kick?
ALR: Paris Hilton. That girl is a disgrace to humanity.
