How would you describe your personal style? Mostly sophisticated and elegant, with a trendy flair.
Go-to brand: I love timeless brands, including Chanel, Valentino and Gucci. I also love so many new designers, including Nicholas for its innovative details, Cushnie Et Ochs for its modern, clean lines, and Self Portrait for its contemporary, textured styles. I can’t forget shoe designers, including Giuseppe Zanotti and Christian Louboutin, and jewelry designers Cartier and Lana.
I’d never be caught dead wearing: Anything that’s not tailored well. I’ve learned that even the most amazing outfit is not flattering if it’s not tailored perfectly. Oh, and drop-crotch pants!
Biggest style icon: There are so many to choose from, but I love Olivia Culpo, Olivia Palermo, Jennifer Lopez and of course, Coco Chanel — each for their unique and confident styles.
Five items in your wardrobe you couldn’t do without: Valentino Rockstud chunky heel sandals, Stella McCartney platform sneakers, Frame denim jeans, Céline or Tom Ford sunglasses, and a denim jacket or my cozy fur bomber jacket during the colder months.
When did you get interested in fashion? Growing up, I attended a private school where I had to wear a uniform every day, and I looked for opportunities to be creative with my style. I really started to get interested in fashion while in middle school, and my style has evolved ever since.
Fashion weakness: I am a true believer that shoes and handbags can make or break an outfit — you can never have enough!
Biggest fashion regret: Anything pleather!
