INTERVIEW: Nikki Phillips
Model and media personality Nikki Phillips, bringing to her blog Styled by Phillips exclusive interviews with celebrities and fashion designers. We interviewed Nikki Phillips on what its like having a busy schedule and what's next for Styled by Phillips.
Love the new look blog – is this becoming a full time job for you or is modelling still your passion?
Thank you, It's been so fun watching Styled by Phillips grow and expand over the years. Styled by Phillips went full time early this year, however I still model and do other work within the industry on a full time basis also. I keep myself busy.
What labels do you love the most and why?
There are way to many labels to list. I'm a huge fan and supporter of our Australian labels and love to always mix my style to a high and low fashion point, allowing my looks and blog posts affordable for all my readers.
Your skin always looks amazing, what is your daily skin care regime?
I'm a firm believer that less is more. My face is on a daily basis getting copious amounts of products applied to it, so in my down time I just cleanse and moisturise.
What’s next for Styled by Phillips?
I have a few collaborations in the pipeline, that I look forward to sharing soon and I work closely with so many brands that it keeps the outfit posts and events frequent and current.
Who and what inspires your style?
I have always been a chic and classic dresser, I guess I would say trends inspire me. I love experimenting and pushing my personal boundaries but always make sure I dress for me and feel comfortable in what I wear. My style icons are Grace Kelly and Olivia Palermo.
What is on your wish list right now?
My wish list involves about 10 pieces which are all visible on www.styledbyphillips.com, but one I'm on the hunt for right now is some good black leather pants.
If you weren't doing what you are doing right now, what else would you have done?
I always wanted to be a vet and work with animals. I still hope to settle down on a small farm and help foster animals.
What does your daily schedule consist of?
My daily schedule is never the same, one day I can be sourcing for the blog, the next day be on a photo shoot, or filming / doing voice overs for TV gigs and when I can we shoot my blog photos. I love what I do and wouldn't swap it for anything, each day brings something new and exciting.
What is favourite item of clothing or accessory at the moment and why?
My new Givenchy Antigona bag. Need I say more.
If you could offer style advice to any one of your readers what would it be?
To dress for your body shape and to adapt trends into your own personal style.
What are your tips for walking the red carpet?
The right outfit definitley plays a huge part. If you feel comfortable in what you're wearing you tend to portray it. However my other tips are don't trip, pull funny faces (as they will haunt you on google ) and if it's an outdoor red carpet wear your hair up, nothing worse the a photo of you smiling with all your hair in your mouth.
