Blogger Mademoiselle Robot Shows Us How She Styles Her Stella McCartney Red Nose Day T-Shirt And Reveals Her Top Fashion Tips

As if we weren't excited enough about Red Nose Day 2013, designer Stella McCartney went and upped the ante with a collection of fabulous charity tees. The comedy creations, which are modeled by the likes of Mossy herself, Alexa Chung and David Gandy in a campaign shot by supermodel and photographer Helena Christensen and Stella's sister and renowned snapper Mary McCartney, are guaranteed to fly off the shelves and now Mademoiselle Robot has been tasked to put her own spin them. We loved the results so much we had to chat to the French fashion blogger about how she puts together her daily outfits, her favourite designers and top blogging tips...

Grazia Daily: What are the key differences between London and Parisian style?

Laetitia Wajnapel: Parisian style is more timeless and conservative. Londoners tend to be more original and daring. Also I think because of a really strong high street in the UK, people in the street are generally more in tune with trends, even if it is only accidental.

Grazia Daily: What's been your fashion month highlight this season so far?

Laetitia Wajnapel: My highlight has been to actually not attend Fashion Week at all (aside from the Scandi ones). I've been taking a breather.

Grazia Daily: When you're choosing an outfit to wear what do you start with?

Laetitia Wajnapel: At the moment, all my outfits seem to revolve around a good white shirt, so I use this as a starting point and then depending what I am doing, I build around it. On a day to day basis it will be white shirt/jeans/oversized knit/ankle boots, then for the evening white shirt/statement trousers/heels/a clutch of some description. I realise this probably sounds very boring.

Grazia Daily: If you were going to design a Red Nose Day tee who would you feature on the front?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I would feature David Bowie, who I have been in awe of since I was a very little girl. Perhaps using the Heroes cover or something like that. Right now I wear my Beatles RND tee quite a lot and also the Monroe one.

Grazia Daily: You have a Mini Robot section on your site – what do you think of the trend for parents dressing the same as their children?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I don't like it! I think children should be allowed to be children for as long as they can, which means unless you start dressing like a child, I don't think we should be dressing the same.

Grazia Daily: How important is social media to your blog and which social platforms do you use?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I use twitter and instagram a lot but not to promote the blog, they are there mostly as another channel to share silly stuff with friends and people who want to hear the silly stuff I have to say. I've recently started using urturn as well which is proving to be really fun. It is a bit like pinterest with added features. Of course I use Facebook as well and this is more of a relay for the blog.

Grazia Daily: Which designers epitomise your style?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I love Luella and each day I hope for her return to the fashion scene. Other favourites would be Stella McCartney, Carven, Marni (for shoes), Acne and Whyred.

Grazia Daily: Which high street stores do you rate?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I love Whistles and COS. Online, I often turn to ASOS - some would say TOO often.

Grazia Daily: Which other fashion blogs do you read and why?

Laetitia Wajnapel: I mostly read my friends' blogs: Park & Cube, Style Slicker, Fashion Foie Gras, July Stars (although her blog is now more of a portfolio type site) and Lola Is Beauty.

Grazia Daily: What beauty products can't you live without?

Laetitia Wajnapel: 8 Hour cream, a good red lipstick (really into Bourjois' Rouge Podium at the moment) and YSL Touche Eclat.

Grazia Daily: What's in your makeup bag?

Laetitia Wajnapel: All of the above, plus some mascara and Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation.
