I'd describe my style as… comfortable quirky glamour with a sense of humour and shoes that tempt fate!

I'd love to pinch Olivia Palermo's wardrobe. Everything she wears is heaven. Heaven, I tell you! The woman is yet to go wrong. She's classic and yet incredibly daring.

My go-to, fail safe outfit when I need to look elegant is… a LBD with killer colour pop heels and a statement bag is always the go to when I don't have time to think of what to wear. It's fool proof. Elegant need not be dull.

I define 'everyday elegance' as… a nod to the future with an ode to the past - that and remembering the age-old choice of tits or legs. You can't have both, ladies, so pick one. Besides, elegance is a state of mind and the way in which you carry yourself. Brigitte Bardot made an oversize sweater look elegant.

My favourite time of the day is… 11pm. Everything is still, but still with a pulse. The phone stops ringing, television becomes far more interesting and you start to surrender to your body's call for bed.

I'm definitely not a morning person… Oh God no! I'm not an ogre! I'm hugely suspicious of upbeat, chatty, morning people. I think they must be using the noise to hide something! I'm a woman of few words until midday (mostly because it's acceptable to eat chocolate after midday. I'm a simple being).

If there were 25 hours in the day, I would spend my extra 60 minutes… pursuing Ryan Gosling. I don't know how. But with all these extra minutes... I feel like I'd figure it out!

If I've just 5 minutes to get ready… I grab a good concealer because without it I look like Kung Fu Panda. Golden Light Bronzer by Bobbi Brown is a must. I'm more likely to leave the house without my pants than without bronzer. I'm not even really Asian. It's all bronzer!
Strobe Cream by MAC makes me glow to the point that you could see me from space.
Finally, I'd reach for Falsies Mascara by Maybelline and Cruella Lip Crayon by NARS. This failsafe combo makes me feel worthy of a good kiss!

Jameela's first fashion collection Jam by Jameela Jamil is now available on Very.co.uk
