Ashley Jensen once used kettle as handbag
London, July 18 (IANS) Actress Ashley Jensen, who cites fashion designer Vivienne Westwood as her style icon, says that at one point of time, she used a kettle as a handbag.
The “Agatha Raisin” actress identifies with Westwood’s eccentric fashion because of her own past desire to dress shockingly, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Westwood is not a style icon for nothing. I really connect with her. I was one of those kids who went through a phase of wanting to dress shockingly. At one point I started using a kettle as a handbag,” Glamour magazine quoted Jensen as saying.
“I love that she never apologises for the female form. In fact, she accentuates it,” she added.
The 46-year-old actress also admires Sara Blakely, who founded Spanx, because of her perseverance and because she is a fan of the control undergarments.
“She was turned down time and time again by manufacturers, but she persevered because she believed she had a good product. And she did; I love my Spanx,” the “Ugly Betty” actress added.
