CARLOTTA CONSTANT, STYLIST
Favourite celebrity you’ve ever styled?
I think my favourite celebrity that I’ve ever styled is Anthony Joshua. I did him recently for a big advert and it was everywhere - all over TV - so that was something that I was really proud of. He’s a lovely guy. It was really fun and also challenging, because I got to style someone who is 6”6 and extremely broad.
What’s your secret to a great outfit?
I think the secret to a great outfit is just wearing it with confidence. Honestly, if you have confidence and you own it then you can make anything look good.
How do you stay connected during these times?
My mum lives abroad, so for me it’s really important to stay connected during these times. We WhatsApp call, Facetime, Zoom, everything so we can see each other. We’ve also recently got into playing games, games that you can play with two players across the world - apps like Scrabble. It’s been really fun and it’s a nicer way to connect with someone, especially at a time like this.
Right now, dressing up means…
Right now, dressing up means wearing something that I would wear going out and feeling sassy in it, feeling great. Just putting this on today has made me feel so good. It’s made me feel a little bit normal doing my hair and doing my makeup. I would recommend to anyone just have a day doing that, cos it’s fun.
How do you stay creative at home?
I’ve done quite a few things to try and stay creative. I feel like everyone’s been through the whole banana bread phase or growing tomatoes and I’ve been trying to brush up on my culinary skills. But I’ve also been painting; a lot of painting. Painting shoes, which has been really fun, and then my boyfriend bought me an easel which was really nice.
What song are you playing on repeat?
The song that I’m playing on repeat at the moment is Coffee by Playyard. It is such a good song. Honestly, every time that I wake up and put that song on, it just makes me feel a thousand times better. It just makes your day start right and it feels really good.
How are you getting your culture fix at home?
The main way that I’m getting my culture fix at home is reading. I’ve been reading so much recently, and also watching TV, and just teaching myself and bettering myself. I think that’s very important at a time like this, to be humbled and be better. Basically, be better and do better.
