#120 Trinny Woodall: Fashion, Instagram & Career Chapters

My guest today is Trinny Woodall, author, fashion advisor and beauty entrepreneur.


You may know her from the hugely popular Trinny and Susannah makeover days. Her and Susannah met in 1994 and wrote a weekly fashion column for The Daily Telegraph. This led to the launch of their own fashion-advice business and first book.

They were then commissioned by the BBC to host What Not to Wear in 2001. The following year they released their second book with the same name as the show What Not to Wear. In total they co-wrote eleven style advice books, many of which became hugely successfully best-sellers in the UK and America.


They co-hosted What Not to Wear for five series and appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show as style and make-over advisors, Trinny still makes regular appearances on ITV’s This Morning show as their fashion style expert.

In this episode we talk about the launch of her Trinny London make-up range, her new Facebook show, how your career can move in cycles, and why she doesn’t do sponsored posts.


(ps. I am loving the Trinny London make-up, they come in little metal pots that you can stack together and it’s super simple. If you’re a fan of Glossier, you’ll really like Trinny’s range. It’s creamy, effective and easy to use. I love it because I can use it quickly when I’m running late!)
