Elsewhere in the chat, Christian spoke about her favourite hairstyles and noted that she has always been inspired by the chic looks worn by stars during the Golden Age of Hollywood.

“I remember being young and seeing a photo of Jayne Mansfield. She was stunning. And I remember her hair being a big thing for me. Hair… that always felt to me like you were complete, you were finished if you had that hair,” the 30-year-old smiled.
