Somewhere between my 19th and 20th nervous breakdown

Somewhere in 1994 between my 19th nervous breakdown and my 20th nervous breakdown, I listened to my dear old grandmother, who loved the ancient adage, a change is as good as a rest, and after looking at my blanched and black-haired self in the mirror one too many times I got it in my head that the way forward was to lose a stone and spend the next month on a sunbed and to go blonde. And so I did, and so I did, and so I did. Carine Roitfeld and Marc Hispard shot and styled me for French Glamour and, you know, my old grandmother was right; a change is as good as a rest and I felt just fine until my 21st nervous breakdown came around where I changed back again.
