Charlotte Patmore = the new girl to follow
By Anna Heaton, 17 June 2017
London-based fashion and music photographer Charlotte Patmore is not only super talented but has mega style to go with. When she's not on tour with musicians like Charli XCX and snapping acts such as Loyle Carner and Wolf Alice, she can be found papping at fashion weeks. Interested? You should be. Your new style-stalk awaits...
'Lil Charlie' – I was tiny in school and wanted to have a less girlie name because I was such a tomboy. Then, when I turned 16, I switched back to Charlotte to be a grown-up.
What keeps you busy?
I'm a music photographer so I'm constantly on tour and doing shoots – it takes up all of my time but I love it.
Favourite trend this season?
Red! I'm obsessed.
If you could have the wardrobe of any film character, who would it be?
Oooh, so many great choices! Probably Sporty Spice. She's technically a film character, right?
What was the last beauty product you bought?
Micellar water – all my friends are raving about how it's the best thing for your skin right now.
If you could create your dream beauty product, what would it be?
I never have time to do my make-up properly, so maybe a make-up gun?! Just blast it on – easy.
Style-stalk Instagram account?
@nellskitsch – she puts the most amazing clothes on her Depop account, it's full of ironic 90s/00s gems.
What do you wear when you don’t know what to wear?
My own merch!
Shopping buddy, dead or alive?
My bestie Izzy (from Black Honey) – I don't need a fantasy one, I've got the real thing.
What piece of style advice have you always remembered?
Dress for yourself, not anyone else.
Five-minute party make-up?
Red lipstick as it's easy to thrown on and makes me feel amazing.
Which designer would you most like to dress you?
When I worked at London Fashion Week, I was way more obsessed with the Fashion East shows than the more established high-end designers.
Who would play you in a movie?
I actually really want to make movies eventually (it's the dream) so I'm going to curve ball this one and say the director.
What style advice would you give to your 13 yourself?
I was 13 in 2004 so tacky designer gear was all the rage. I'd definitely say not to be so obsessed with chasing designer names and trust your instincts when it comes to style.
