“I like this photograph by Peter Lindbergh shot for Ruffo in 1997 so much. It makes me think of cool autumn days spent wandering around the city with the person you love, sipping coffee in bars, smoking and cuddling. Even though the photo was shot in the 90s it has a timeless quality. Also, I have a thing for black leather jackets!”

“Mark Borthwick is one of my favorite contemporary photographers. I love the way he captures the most ordinary things in life and makes them beautifully poetic. Be it a naturally imperfect body or a landscape, he manages to go beyond the surface and craft a haunting, delicate dream. This polaroid picture by him reminds me of hot summer days spent by the sea with friends, looking at the horizon with a melting drink in your hand.”
“I love the raw energy of this picture and how Debbie Harry oozes sexiness on stage. She and Kim Gordon inspire me a lot – their dark sensuality and their nonchalant, kick-ass attitude is something that I have always admired and identified with. Yet, when they perform they allow themselves to be vulnerable, and fearless. As Gordon puts it in “Girl in a Band”, “I like being in a weak position, and making it strong.” That is female empowerment to me.”
