What are your favorite hair products?
"I'm obsessed with Michael Van Clarke's 3 More Inches Collection, which is at Space NK. The products make your hair really strong and thick. The pre-wash treatment is so amazing!"

What do you miss most about London?
"My amazing friends and family."
What would you miss most if you left New York?
"Brooklyn! I love all the amazing laid-back bars and cafes near my house. And I guess I would miss my work, too!"
Kate wears an old Gap T-shirt, vintage overalls from Stella Dallas, and MAC's Russian Red lipstick.
Best cheap score of late?
"Denim overalls, which I wear dressed up and down, I found at Stella Dallas in Brooklyn. They were really cheap and are so comfy. I wear them all the time!"

Any favorite spots in the city for home goods and bric-a-brac?
"My favorite thing to do is go to junk stores and markets. It's so nice to have more used and loved pieces, rather than something off-the-rack that's mass-produced. I think it's good to have to really search for pieces yourself and use your own creativity. The Brooklyn Flea is great for that. I've also picked up a few great pieces off the street. I found a huge old clothing rail once that I was very happy with."
Kate wears old wedding bands, a gold snake ring, and a Delfina Delettrez skull ring from Opening Ceremony—both gifts from her boyfriend. Her nails are Calgels from Primp and Polish in Willamsburg.
What's the story behind your tattoos?
"I like that my tattoos don't really have a specific story or meaning. It's more of an art thing for me. I'm really fascinated by skulls. The one on my hand was partly inspired by Renaissance paintings, which often include a skull positioned somewhere within the painting (always depicted without a jaw) as a symbol to represent human mortality, so it reminds me to live life to the fullest, I guess..."
