When you come to London, where are the five places that you love to visit?
"I love the Connaught hotel
; the bar in the back is gorgeous. Even the front room with the curved windows is insane. That is such a beautiful room and I quite like the smell too. I don’t know what it is but I’m going to find out. I think the Wolseley
is amazing for lunch. I had the grilled salmon last time I went there. I love the black and white floors there and the arches, which remind me of a train station. It’s a beautiful, beautiful room. I went to the Dover Street Arts Club
last night, which was fantastic, and I love the outside terrace there. In terms of shopping, Dover Street Market
is great. I also love to go to the big Topshop
, too. That’s my favourite of those types of brands; I mix Topshop with Oscar all the time. I’ll wear an embroidered Oscar skirt with a Topshop crop top. Women don’t dress head to toe in designer anymore and I’m no exception. Oscar asks me all the time, whenever he sees a piece of clothing that he knows is not his it’s usually Topshop, it’s so funny, he must think I’m mad about the place. But I am."Photo: Courtesy of Oscar de la Renta.
