‘There are certain events when I know people are expecting part-Lesley, part-Dorien, so I will Dorien-esque myself up. It will normally involve a bit of leopardskin’
I have a process: choose outfit, have bath, moisturise, apply makeup, put on clothes, sort hair, panic, take everything off and start again. I can get changed about five times. I am not very good at making decisions. There are times when I get to a function and think I’ve made the wrong choice, then worry about it for the whole evening. I once turned up to an awards ceremony wearing mismatching shoes. It wouldn’t have mattered, but I had to present an award. I got up on stage and said, “Ladies and Gentleman, as you can see, I obviously get dressed in the dark”, and got a round of applause.
