What’s hot right now?
Shapes and prints are on fire at the moment! Designers are dipping back into the archives for inspiration, for instance; Dolce Gabbana’s new collection is reminiscent of old Givenchy with its really feminine silhouettes , but its definitely been updated with a modern twist. Print is the new black this season.
What was the most fashionable thing you last bought?
A vintage gold lamé Lanvin maxi dress from the ’70′s that a client wore to a wedding in Monaco. It was one of the most romantic dresses I’ve ever seen. It was flowy and had the perfect amount of opulence.
What destination are you most looking forward to traveling to right now?
I live on planes and constantly go back and forth between my New York apartment and LA home. Because of that I’m really looking forward to my husband and I relaxing over the end of year holidays with my family in St. Louis. We also have a trip to North Island in the Seychelles, and Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, New Zealand coming up!
What’s on your style wish list?
A 50 cm black Kelly travel bag, a 1960′s Daytona Rolex, every color henley from Rag & Bone, and of course the D.V. by Diana Vreeland book.
What’s on heavy rotation in your wardrobe currently?
My black leather IRO jacket, my black Saint Laurent jeans, and my favorite blue jeans from Urban Outfitters (the best fit!).
