At photo shoots for New York magazine and Vogue, Shirreffs weaves her wardrobe magic to make models and musicians look even more glamorous. Here, she reveals her aesthetic inspirations.

My style gurus are…

The Warhol superstars, Jarvis Cocker, Deee-Lite and pretty much every Frenchwoman.

My favourite childhood outfit was…

This burnt-orange corduroy two-piece outfit from Jacob Jr. I was bullied so badly by the older girls at school for it, and it just inspired me to wear it more.

The most important thing in a woman’s wardrobe is…

Undergarments that fit well. They’re the foundation of your outfit, and an ill-fitting bra can ruin it.

I never leave home without…

My Tom Ford red lipstick. If I’m not dressed up, it elevates my look.

I deeply regret…

Wearing pale-green Uggs. The early 2000s were a very confusing time for me.

I’ll never wear…

Flip-flops. Walking in the city basically barefoot is gross!
