She also said that looking after herself on the inside means she looks best on the outside.
Deeley said: 'I think if you look after yourself
on a regular basis, and do the prep beforehand, you don't need to put
lots of effort into looking good. It's about finding the right balance –
if you have a good diet, drink lots of water, exercise regularly and
sleep, you won't look bad on a regular basis.

out and having a delicious glass of wine with friends, having a great
laugh and chat then realizing its 2am isn't so bad – you've put in the

Speaking about her fashion influences, Deeley said that living in LA means she misses the way British women dress, particularly the style of female Londoners: 'everyone is so individual and unique.'
She added: 'I love all the vintage stores in LA, and the really relaxed vibe of having just spent the day
at the beach. But I do love and miss the London high street.
Deeley has paired up with Pantene Pro-V to promote Cancer Hair Care, a charity which provides support to women undergoing chemotherapy for cancer throughout the entire hair loss and regrowth process.

In her role as Pantene Ambassador, Deeley made a video with five women who have all dealt with hair loss through cancer treatment.
She added: 'All of their stories were varied, however the one thing that really stood out to me was how positive they remained, they really are great ambassadors for this charity.
'Working on this campaign has made me realise what a difference you can make to the lives of these women. By helping provide more support and advice, we're helping them through the treatment process. I'm so pleased to be part of the team that helps drive awareness around this small charity.'
