Dress by Ralph Lauren

I’m a big fan of American sportswear: Ralph Lauren, DVF, DKNY, and J. Crew. Their designs match my lifestyle: on-the-go journalist, mother and wife. I like the versatility of their clothes, and their designs travel well. They are not afraid to use bold colours, which I adore. The set is predominately black and dark blue, so I usually wear bright colours. There’s no on-air formal dress code but each individual anchor considers what is appropriate.

Shoes by Jimmy Choo

For work I always wear heels. At 5ft10in, I don’t need the height but I feel a bit of a heel adds a finishing touch and I like Jimmy Choo because of the quality. At the weekend I never wear heels though; I go for either Converse sneakers or ballet flats by Tory Burch or Miu Miu.

Belt by Fendi

This belt is very versatile. I purchased it online a couple of years ago and I wear it again and again. It’s a timeless design – a patent leather belt with a Fendi finish.

Jewellery by John Hardy

For work I prefer to wear simple jewellery. This is a set of bamboo hoop earrings and a matching coil bracelet by John Hardy. The Asian-inspired design is lovely and the silver is engineered to be flexible just like real bamboo – they bend but don’t break.

Engagement ring by Carnet

My husband selected it. I always wear either my engagement ring or wedding ring, never both.

iPad 2

This is my portfolio for work and life. You’ll always see me carrying it on air. I use it for checking e-mails and for incoming news feeds. After work I use it as a photo album and learning tool for my daughter.

Watch by Van Cleef & Arpels

This was a gift from my husband. We bought it at the shop in Place Vendôme, Paris. I always wear this watch during the week, but at the weekend I wear a black double-strapped Hermès Cape Cod.
