Grazia Daily: What appeals to you about Motilo?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: First of all I love the aesthetic aspect of it. I love that it distinct itself from any other website of its category with its very feminine look. I love the font, it reminds me the one used in 60's vintage playboy magazine.
Secondly, I think its so much fun to be able to share looks, and ask advice to women all around the world and see how they picture a look!
Grazia Daily: What does your role at Motilo entail?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: I am working closely with the Motilo team in this exciting new phase of their site. As well as being an active user of Motilo, I interact with the site's users on a regular basis, helping them to solve their fashion dilemmas as well as sharing more about my own. We will also be collaborating on creative content to be released in the coming months.
Grazia Daily: What is your ultimate fashion dilemma?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: What to wear on a date. I am still so bad at it! It's so hard to find the right balance between looking sexy yet looking relaxed.
Grazia Daily: Who do you turn to for style advice?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: Most of the time my mum! [that's Carine Roitfeld, dontcha know].
Grazia Daily: How do you go about choosing outfits for special events?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: As a creative director I usually put the look together in my head before even trying it on! and i always get dressed last minute hoping that what i pictured looks great in real life!
Grazia Daily: What is your all-time favourite look - for day and for night?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: For the day I love to wear a black mini dress or skirt, with some nice flats, like the manolo blahnick pointy flats. I alweays accessorize with a nice purse that can also fit everything from my phone to my baby diapers and food! If it's winter, i will pair it with a nice coat, I am really into nice military coats right now. For the evening, I think you cannot go wrong with anything Alaia, and high high heels!
Grazia Daily: What style essential can you not do without?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: A pair of black stilettos. I have a pair of miu mius that i have been wearing for at least 5 years and that goes with everything!
Grazia Daily: What's your everyday beauty routine?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: I wash my face day and night, with tata harper cleanser and I try to not wear make up during the day. It gives a break to my skin. I will just wear a tiny touch of Rose Marie Swift concealer if I have to.
Grazia Daily: What's the one piece of style advice that has stayed with you?
Julia Restoin Roitfeld: To never wear a total look from a designer. Mix and match and be creative.
