Ciara Rickard: ELLE Canada editor profile
Position: Production editor
At ELLE since: December 2011
Who are your favourite fashion designers?
Erdem, Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin.
What is the most prized item in your closet?
A beautiful Balenciaga skirt I bought for less than $30 at a private sale in London. It’s tight, though, so I have to limit my cupcake intake before I wear it.
What is one item you wish you had in your closet?
Just one?? Okay, this season, it’s D&G’s adorable owl dress.
What is the one beauty product you currently can’t live without?
Lise Watier concealer (Portfolio Professional Correctors). It makes me look like I’ve had nine hours’ sleep – even when I’ve been up watching Scandal till 1:30 a.m.
Who are your style and beauty icons?
Jessica Alba always looks pretty cool without being so edgy that I can’t even contemplate emulating her look. And Cate Blanchett consistently has stunning makeup and manages to look luminous.
What would be your ultimate fashion dream come true?
Designers and jewellers clamouring to outfit me for an event – as they would a celeb before the Oscars. I’m convinced I could find my most perfect dress (and bling) this way.
