Lara Bohinc: Jeweler To Kate Moss, Michelle Obama, Samantha Cameron Doesn't Do Freebies

Jewelry designer Lara Bohinc - who has designed pieces for everyone from Lily Allen to Michelle Obama - sat down with The Telegraph to discuss her disdain for "freeloading stars." She explains, "I think celebrities should buy their own jewellery... I don't send stuff to anyone."

She doesn't even gift items to supermodels, "Kate Moss asked for a belt once, so I gave it to her, but I had to say, 'Are you sure she'll be wearing it?' I didn't want to see it on her Filipina maid."

Bohnic has the luxury of being picky when it comes to her clients, the young designer who graduated from London's Royal College of Art counts Gucci and Lanvin amongst her references. Maybe she should, however, brush up on her politics if she would like to continue to dress the first ladies of the world, "Samantha Cameron's people came into the shop to buy it, but they didn't say who they were, so I had no idea."
