Her style is fun, chic and always on the right side of kooky. Betty Autier is our everyday icon this week.
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
I have a particular taste for the 80’s. Even if I’m not always dressed in an 80’s style, the fashion codes attract me a lot: shoulder pads, vintage clothes, sequins…
WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR?
Nothing is too ridiculous! The only things I refuse to wear, for ethical reasons, are fur and counterfeit items.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
When I was a little girl, I loved to dress up and always asked my mum to take a picture of me. We used a whole roll of 36 shots in an hour. Then, we had to develop them! Anyway, this environment always attracted me a lot. I dragged my mum along to children’s modeling agencies. She was reluctant but I knew she’d always end up going with me. Thank you mum!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
If I listened to myself, I’d eat junk food everyday! I love pizzas and doughnuts. Otherwise, I love vegetarian and vegan food.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
So many things, but particularly my favourite artists: Michael Jackson, the Spice Girls, Lil Wayne, Freddie Mercury, Lady Gaga. I’m fascinated by iconic people. Whether I like their music or not, they inspire me!
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET?
Paul McCartney, I became a vegetarian when I was 11 thanks to him!
