Take 5

Électrique caught up with political advisor by day, blogger by night Briony Whitehouse, the charming author of A Girl, A Style.


Can you describe yourself in five words?
Daydreamer, politically-savvy, Chanel-junkie.

What’s your earliest memory?
Insisting on calling an election to select a kindergarten leader - which I won!

What would be the first sentence of your biography?
It all began the day she stepped foot on Capitol Hill in inappropriate footwear…

What’s your drag queen name? (first pet’s name/mother’s maiden name)
Sugar Pearson (sorry, Mum!)

If you could swap places with someone for the day, who would you choose?
I’d choose between three individuals: Anna Wintour (to know just what life would be like in that world of hers), Martha Stewart (so I could steal her recipe books and rifle through her cupboards to see if it really is that neat) and President Obama (to know what it must feel like to be the leader of the free world while surviving on what must be an average of two hours sleep).
