Actress Carice Van Houten, best known for her role as Melisandre, the ‘Red Priestess’ in the hit show Game of Thrones, shares her Valentines must haves for 2019…

The perfect romantic evening for me always involves lighting some candles and putting on a good jazz record. Care Trudon make the best candles and this scent is so fresh and beautiful.

Two of my favourite brands at the moment are Batsheva and The Vampire’s Wife, both give me an amazing sense of femininity, elegance and playfulness. The Sacred Heart bag in red is the perfect valentines accessory to go with this gingham dress, so sweet. I would wear this with some tough boots such as these amazing red ones from Chloe. I’m also a huge fan of Simone Rocha’s hair slides and this pearl and read beaded number is ideal for finishing any look.

I’m a self confessed perfume freak and have very high standards when it comes to my ideal scent…my nose can be very demanding! Parisian Rhapsody by Sabé Masson, which conjures together red berries, orange, rose, jasmine and vanilla is my absolute favourite.

I’m a big fan of Chloe sunglasses, their oversized frames and tinted lenses are always so flattering and very seventies. This heart shaped pair are so dreamy and fun.
