How would you describe the Siobhan Donaghy look?
I've always been a tomboy, and because my hair can be quite restricting, I try and wear tougher things - I've got a Paul and Joe tux on right now. So I try and wear harder things: guys' T-shirts mixed with skinny jeans, that kind of thing. If I wear a dress I have to wear quite a solid pair of shoes to kind of toughen it up. I don't like being girly-girly.


If you could steal anyone's wardrobe, whose would you raid?
I'd pick Helena Bonham Carter's, just because of the amount of Westwood she's got.


You say your style is quite tough and tomboy. If you need to feel elegant and glamorous, have you got a failsafe outfit in your wardrobe?
Yes, it's a Hussein Chalayan black dress that's like a spider web and underneath it's a sheer, nude colour. But it's a classic black dress that I can throw on.


What does 'Everyday Elegance' mean to you?
It's more about grooming than what you wear. It's how you wear things, and as I've got older it's been about how I groom my skin and my hair. It's more about general maintenance than daily routine.



What are your wardrobe staple pieces?
For me it's become all about my staple items. I have a little smart Balenciaga leather jacket and my skinny jeans, and I rely on those. Then, for example, a really good watch is a classic thing that you should invest in. And I have my Lanvin handbag, I've had it for five years. I don't buy a lot, but the things I do buy are really good quality, and ethically sourced and made. That's what I'm into.



How do you feel about morning people? Are you a morning person?
I'm a morning person; I get up at 6am every day. I run. But that's as I got older. Teenagers, they all just sleep in. When I got to 25 and I decided that I like mornings, I would force myself to get up in the
morning. Now if I don't get up before 7.30 or 8, I feel like I've wasted the day. Which is ridiculous I know, but I do.


Now that MKS are back together you've got a lot of early mornings ahead.
And late nights all in the same day!


If there were 25 hours in the day how would you spend that extra 60 minutes?
Probably with my new husband. I don't get to spend an awful lot of time with him at the moment.


What's he like?
We've been together six years. We met in India, and he's wonderful. I like spending time with him.


If you've just five minutes to get ready to go on stage, what beauty items to do you grab for?
I'm usually so nervous that I forget. I normally groom myself at home and get ready, and then the rest is just nerves. I'll probably forget to even brush my hair or put on some more lipstick, if I'm completely honest.  But it's those things - brush your hair, reapply your lipstick.


What do you think of your new watch?
I love it. Apparently I've picked the best-seller, so I was a bit annoyed with myself at that. But I love it. It's really chic.
