Are you a morning person?
Absolutely. Even before the arrival of my two children, who never fail to wake me up in the morning, I never managed to sleep in. Except on my last birthday when, after a very festive night, I stayed in bed till 9 in the morning. Exceptional, huh?
What’s your ideal breakfast?
Black tea with milk and toast. Every day. I’m a real Englishwoman! And a very healthy juice, preferably green, to compensate for the very generous dose of butter I have with my sandwiches.
And what do you do immediately after breakfast?
I take my children to school, and then I go home at 10 when I sometimes have a second breakfast!
What are some of your favourite places for breakfast?
Urban Cowboy, a very cosy boutique hotel in Nashville. On weekends, we go for a legendary brunch by Matthew Mosshart (brother of The Kills singer, Alison Mosshart, a close friend). I also like the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. In the morning, I wake up head down to the garden terrace for devilled eggs… it’s divine! In New York, I go to Cafe Gitane on Mott Street. They serve the strongest coffee I’ve ever drunk. They also have Viennese pastries that are to die for.
