Black book: Smita Lasrado
The model shares her favourite tables, dream escapes and beauty must-haves
Palatial hotel rooms, do-nothing bespoke services, top chefs on speed dial – in this series, ten ladies-in-the-know give us a peek into their luxury black books.
The make-up brand I’m loyal to:
Giorgio Armani. I love their Luminous Silk foundation. It gives you the perfect glow, and is really light. A single bottle goes a long way.
A super-indulgent meal worth the money:
The escargot and frog legs at Chez L’ami Louis (Tel: +331 4887 7748) in Paris were the tastiest I’ve ever had. Also, Sumosan in London; my husband ordered pretty much everything on the menu.
ELLE Loves: The traditional sashimi set at Sumosan, London — expect to bump into Nicole Kidman when you go.
Need this designer in my wardrobe, now:
Haider Ackermann. I normally buy only vintage and secondhand clothes, but I’m going to buy something of his. Anything.
My favourite escape:
The Datai Langkawi in Kuala Lumpur.
