Mickey Sumner

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Exotic Mickey Sumner, the daughter of Sting and Trudie Styler, is an actress—and her ability to assume different roles shows in her ever-changing looks. “My mum was a pretty big influence when I was growing up,” she says. “And then I got rebellious and went through a very grungy moment, and then had a hippy moment and now I like to buy clothes that feel as if I’ve always owned them—timeless. I dress depending on my mood; some days very girly, others more tomboyish. I love anything made by the designers Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Rodarte, Chris Benz and the gorgeous French line Heimstone.” A muse (and best friend) of Chris Benz, the fashionable duo appears on AVENUE’s March cover (and best dressed list). Sumner won’t reveal how many shoes she owns, but will admit that her favorite is “a pair of studded moccasin boots that I stole from my mum who wore them in the ’80s. They are amazing. I have to get them repaired every year because the leather is so thin.”
