Style Interview: Fumi Desalu of Glamour Girl

Today, I’m, showcasing one of the lovely ladies from my inner-circle. I have a group of girlfriends that are powerful, inspirational and supportive. Beautiful people with souls to match.

Name: Fumi Desalu-Vold

Age: 42

Occupation: Model/Actress/Style icon/Style Bloger/TV Talk show host.

Single/Married: Married to a Norwegian, Live in Oslo, Norway.

Where are you from: I’m half Nigerian & Half The Gambian.

What do you love most about your city: The 4 seasons of the year & the liberty to travel to Milan, Moscow, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Stockholm within a 3 hr time frame.

What inspires your style and how would you describe it: My style is timeless/classic/old Hollywood, with a SPLASH of Vintage. I would describe it as pure GLAMOUR baby!

How do you decide your outfit of the day: My outfit really depends on where I’m going or what I’m doing. One thing is for sure.. I  am NEVER casually dressed. I love clothes and feel that it’s good manners to introduce yourself to the world in your very best.

You are an actress. Can you share some of your past and present gigs: Yes, {smile}, I am an actress and now that I think of it, I think I’ve always been an actress but only started getting paid for it when I went pro.

I lived in LA for 8yrs & I’ll just mention a few that I was in, (Some of the shows have now been canceled):

Ugly Betty for 2 seasons, Entourage, The Game, American Dreamz, The Oh in Ohio, The movie: Norbit

I just moved to Norway over a year ago and I was in their number one soap Opera HOTEL CEASAR and just finished doing a feature film which comes out in December called VARG VEUM, I have some very exciting fight scenes in it. I love the business of acting & studied at the The Actors Studio in New york.

What do you like about the acting world: I learned a lot about fashion when I was acting in LA. Especially because of the wardrobe team and the amazing wardrobe department at Warner Brothers & Paramount Studios. This was how I fell in love with Vintage pieces, from all of the period films that I acted in.

Plus it’s such an expression of self, when you act, you just let yourself go and become somebody else, it’s rather liberating.

Vintage or Latest trend: I’m too greedy I love both. But this is what I do….

A) I never spend too much money on anything that is trendy, I tend to shop at the high street stores for those & just have fun wearing them for those few months.

B) Vintage is timeless and u will have FOREVER, so I invest a lot of money in those and keep them wrapped in pretty boxes with peach tissue.

Any Style Icons (dead or alive): Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Babe Paley, Daphne Guinness, Ivanka Trump, Halston, Tom Ford, C.Z. Guest, Shirley Bassey, The Late New York socialite Nan Kempner, Isabella blow (to mention a few).

How do people respond to your style: They say………WowowoW!


Favorite fashion quote: Fashion is a direct description of you without saying a word.

Favorite Item In Your Closet: My favorite piece is a limited edition feathered cape that Kate Moss designed for Top Shop.

Favorite Brands or Designers: Designers..Tom Ford, Halston, Lanvin, Versace, Chanel, Hermes, Tods, Roberto Cavalli, Christian Dior, Chloe, Emilio Pucci, Gucci.

Brands: H&M, BCBG, MANGO-London, ZARA, GAP, TopShop, JEFFREY-NY, BIG DROP-NY, SCOOP-NY, BOOTS (to mention a few)

What are you into this season: The color yellow.

Fashion is: ..an expression of self…..NEVER take it seriously and ALWAYS have fun with it.

Favorite Color: I love, love, love RED!

Dream Job: To be an International BRAND name ( FDV inc ) & have my own show like Oprah’s but with so much more Pizazz &  work from the South of France.

Pointy | Square | Round toe shoes: POINTY. It elongates the leg & it’s the sexiest shape of the 3……in my opinion.

Favorite Shoe Brand: I have 3,  sorry. Jimmy Choo, Manolo blahnik, Christian Louboutin.
