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.

Go-to store: With two kids and a busy schedule, I tend to do most of my shopping online at Intermix, Saks Fifth Avenue, Revolve and Shopbop. Locally I shop at Penelope T and Neiman Marcus.

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!
