I was in a band when I was 15. We were a glam band. Then I couldn’t afford to buy makeup. At the time that was the thing.
People say it is tough to have true friends in glam world, but I feel it is the same everywhere.
My aunt made stuff; my mom was creative, so I was surrounded by that. When I moved to England, it was ’75, and everything was happening. My whole teenage life is England, glam rock and David Bowie and Sex Pistols and Iggy Pop, all that stuff.
I love masculine cuts with suits and chunky jewellery. My hair is so glam, it balances it out, and it’s comfy!
Style has always been very important to us. We grew up in the ’70s. Music was glam rock, punk rock and a very stylish movement.
Punk was sort of an angry stance against things that had happened just before, against the pop of glam rock, against progressive rock. Music had become very staid and it was about the playing and people obsessed. Eric Clapton was God and we needed an enema within the art form, and punk did do that.
Whether glam or deglam, performance is what everyone wants in a heroine.
In the early part of the ’70s, we had glam rock, but we also had reggae and ska happening at the same time. I just took all those influences I had as a kid and threw them together, and somehow it works.
Just like every young woman, I love getting all glam for the holidays.
I wore makeup when I was at school, and I wore makeup when glam started. I started wearing it again when punk started. I’ve always been drawn to wearing it. It’s partly ritualistic, partly theatrical and partly just because I think I look better with it on.

I don’t work with a stylist, I don’t work with a glam squad to get me together for the red carpet, I really enjoy the time it takes to do it myself, to choose my clothes and do my own makeup and my own hair.
In the early ’70s, coming out of the ’60s, it was very hippy or it was very uniform, like The Beatles all wearing the same suit. Into the ’70s, it became much more about a personal style. You had the glam period, which was a lot of fun, and then you went into punk.
I was born in ’71, so I remember bits of glam rock on ‘Top of the Pops’ toward the late ’70s, but I had no idea what kind of world it was. I didn’t like the music, either.
It’s wrong to say that there is no performance in a glamorous role. Even a glam role takes in a lot of effort. There is a fine line between being glamorous and being vulgar; you have to feel comfortable in what you wear.
I entered this glam world by luck. I wanted to join dancing classes since I was a child, but my parents never gave me the permission to do so, as no one in our family had ever chosen this path. Fortunately, I got my first break in a reality show easily due to my dance skills, so that way I have been lucky.

A bright lipstick is a quick way to glam up my look.
I’ve not worn a dress since about 1985. It always amazes me how there is still a fascination for it in England. The rest of the world doesn’t seem to care. I’m not sure whether they don’t remember or whether they’ve just moved on from it. I was brought up in the glam era.

The life of an editor may seem all glam all the time, but there’s nothing like schlepping through the city during a torrential downpour to put things in perspective.
My songwriting is so influenced by orchestrated music, dramatic, super glam rock-y stuff. Two of my biggest influences in songwriting were Elton John and Freddie Mercury.
Glam really did plant seeds for a new identity. I think a lot of kids needed that – that sense of reinvention. Kids learned that however crazy you may think it is, there is a place for what you want to do and who you want to be.

Glam rock always has a story to tell and has that powerful voice with a little hint of libretto.

For my eyes, my day-to-day just involves curling my lashes to open up my eyes and applying our mascara, The Quickie. If I’m getting my makeup done, I like to get individual lash extensions or a strip of false lashes, depending on how glam I want to get.
It’s just that I’ve always been a tomboy, so being thrown into the hot nerd category and the glam thing has been very interesting for me to swallow.
I can be sexy and feel sexy when I’m in full glam hair and makeup for a shoot. I can also feel really sexy when I’m in sweats and no makeup with my daughter.
