The Style Bible by Simon Rademan


- by Simon Rademan


Anel Alexander  Actress, Presenter and Producer


  1. Shopping motto:  Apart from “I wish I had more to spend!”? Buy clever and never make (too much) debt for clothes
  2. Dress etiquette? I hate being uncomfortable in my clothes. So I’d say: Comfort
  3. Wardrobe friend?  La Senza lingerie J
  4. Shoe heel height?  To me heals epitomize the saying “It’s painful to be beautiful.” I hate wearing them, but there is just something a pair of heals does to a woman’s posture and the way she carries herself that makes it an indespensible item for any evening out
  5. Dress mistakes? – What?  Not really, no. I tend to play it safe which is actually a bit boring. I decided this year I must force myself to be a bit more daring, so watch this space! 
  6. How many hangers in your wardrobe?  A lot, but there never seems to be an available one!? 
  7. Accessory friend?  I went to India a year ago and bought some amazing jewellery that always gets the compliments rolling.
  8. Best asset?  I would say my teeth and my hubby would say my boobs! I am blessed with a 34C and contrary to popular belief, they are real!
  9. Lipstick? Colour?  Anything from Mac
  10. Handbag?  What’s in it?  I am a bit of a perfectionist and hate being caught without something. This characteristic of mine unfortunately makes for a very heavy handbag where you will find anything from lip balm to plasters and medicine (for if somebody gets hurt!) a notebook to write random ideas in and then of course the other basics.
  11. Week-end friend?  I am a comfort freak. I am all for being comfortable and hate too tight clothes. So on weekends I’ll most likely be in my pajamas or in a tracksuit… But more likely in my pajamas!
  12. A second hand item?  One of my most comfortable tops is my dad’s under 15 rugby jersey. It’s very precious to me.
  13. Most expensive item, ever?  That would have to be my wedding dress that I didn’t even get to keep… (This is the part where I wish I met Mnr Rademan earlier!).
  14. Cheapest buy?  A girl never tells!
  15. Best investment?  A ľ light, brown leather jacket. I despise winter cos I hate being cold. This jacket has saved my life on numerous occasions.
  16. Dress secret?  My secret weapon is my husband. He buys me better and nicer clothes than I am ever able to buy myself. For some reason he just gets it right. He’ll often buy me things when I’m not even with him, he’ll come home, it fits perfectly and it will be the item I get the most compliments on.
  17. Your husband’s thoughts on your wardrobe?  He has to like it, cos he dresses me a lot of the time!
  18. …and your thoughts on his?  My husband, James, is also an actor, and I think we could both take more risks when it comes to fashion. But as far as his dress sense is concerned, I can’t complain too much. He has enough metro man in him and fortunately works in an industry where he has to wear make-up to work! So once that bridge gets crossed, men become quite flexible in the clothes department.
  19. Definition of style? Somebody who dresses in a way that compliments their body as well as their character.
  20. Describe today’s fashion?   Anything goes!


And what do they say...?
