The singer, fashion designer and occasional actress talks style, exercise and her signature red pout.

My biggest accomplishment… is my marriage so far, because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard.

On style… Being in a band, you can wear whatever you want – it`s like an excuse for Halloween every day.

On acting… It comes from the same place as performing music. I just have to perform. I wanted to get it right and I did. Sometimes you just have to go for it.

On performing… Sometimes you have to sacrifice your performance for high heels.

My favourite designer is… Vivienne Westwood; she is the only real designer that I give all my money to. Every time I go to London, I buy three suits. Her clothes fit me really well. They’re modern, classic and everything that I love. She’s the queen!

Best advice… Find something that you are passionate about.

In my beauty bag… Pantene Pro-V’s Style Sheer Volume Hairspray, Kiehl’s Cucumber Essence, Harajuku Lovers fragrances in G, Lil’ Angel, Music, Love and Baby, and M.A.C Lipstick in Ruby Woo.


On her signature red lipstick… My husband really loves the red [lipstick], so I keep it because I want to keep the husband.


Make-up on tour is… Sweat-proof. I don’t know how many calories I must burn every night; I’m dying up there! You can get waterproof stuff at the beauty supply, but it’s mainly about layering.

On beauty… I wear make-up every single day. I like to wear make-up for Gavin, and I don’t feel energised until I’ve put it on. Then I’m ready to go.

On exercise… There is no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out and torture yourself. I work out five days a week; I can’t imagine not doing it.
