Amy Neville aka amynevfashiondiaries travels the world as an international model and lives in London where she constantly seeks to inspire us with her fashion choices through her blog AmyNevFashionDiaries. Her behind the scenes approach, high flying lifestyle and sartorial choices have led to an army of fans on Instagram and YouTube who follow her every move from modelling worldwide to shooting street style for her blog in her London base.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
Fashion-wise I know it’s as cliche as you can get, but it would have to be Kate Moss. I simply love her rock-chic timeless style and I really respect how she has managed to maintain being a very private person despite being in the public eye. Anyone who can keep at the top of their game in any industry like KM has is a massive inspiration.
I would also add however on a personal life inspiration, it would most definitely have to be my Nan. She has never cared what anyone thinks of her and I love this attitude to life and it is something I try to bring into my work – being myself, and expressing exactly who I am..
What is your favourite flower?
I am a huge fan of lilies, especially in whites and pinks are my favourite colours – I always have fresh flowers around my house when I am in the country
….I also like a big bouquet of roses on Valentines Day like any girl!
How would you describe your personal style?
Super-colourful, unique and personalised. I love prints and pieces that stand out from the crowd.
What is your favourite Beulah piece?
SUSANNAH – ZIG ZAG SPLIT BODICE JUMPSUIT.
I am a huge fan of jumpsuits at the moment, I think they are super chic and classy. They also elongate the body and which girl doesn’t want to look taller.. Every time I wear one, I feel like a Victoria Secrets model which is never a bad thing!
What do you think Beulah stands for and the work it does through The Beulah Trust?
I am a big fan of Belulah and the great work they do. There are a lot of companies out there at the moment who only look at the bottom line and it is a breath of fresh air to see a company turn this on its head and whilst delivering top quality clothing with a focus of giving something back.
Beulah to me is about elegance and independence, something all women should have the opportunity to feel.
What drives you most in the work that you do?
I have always strived to be the best in what Ido, and Ibelieve as long as I know I have done my best – I will have no regrets.
What is your favourite beauty product?
I simply couldn’t live without my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.
With my job, my skin can suffer from breakouts with the different make-up products applied and climate changes. This to me is literally a miracle concealer with great coverage without being too heavy on the skin. I swear by it after trying numerous different concealers over the years.
What’s the best place to eat / hang out in London?
Novikov is one of my regular haunts, great food mix of Italian or Asian so there is always something new to try and there is always a great atmosphere. The club downstairs is perfect when you’ve had a few drinks upstairs and you want to get the party started!
Bluebird and The Ivy are also lunch favourites of mine which I highly recommend if you are in London for the day.
What is the best city you have been to?
I have been so lucky to have travelled all over the world with my modelling career over the past 8 years.
I have worked in New York, Milan, Paris, Barbados, Mexico to name a few. In just the past two weeks I have travelled to Morocco, Dubai and Ibiza for shoots but I would say my all-time favourite is Miami. It’s got everything I love, the laid back lifestyle, glamour and of course SUN!
