She met Alexandra Golovanoff – a French fashion journalist who has been leading her own fashion TV channel for over a decade, launched her own cashmere label in 2016 and is a regular on the FROW of every prestigious Paris Fashion Week show.
Golovanoff shared the secret to dressing like a Parisian and it was music to Cotton’s ears.
“We’re not trying to reach perfection,” she explained. “We don’t care if the nails are a bit…
To which Cotton gllefully replied: “Mine are horrendous! I’m very Parisian in that way.”
Golovanoff added: “Everything should be natural, but a little bit better than natural. It’s effortless.
“You can have one very big thing: a diamond or a fur coat. But you have only one thing. Not the bag plus the fur.”
