What fall trend are you most excited about?
This season there were some great suiting options from Dior, Stella, and Gucci that I'm excited to wear—but in a way that's less "power suit" more Michelle Pfeiffer in Scar Face. I also love the subtle hints of bondage, which we saw in lace–up details at Dior, Jonathan Simkhai and Alexandre Vaultier. And of course, I'm always a fan of leopard and cheetah, which to me are always on trend.
What is the one thing every woman needs in her closet?
A black Wolford bodysuit.
What’s always in your bag?
My cell phone, an extra mophie charger, my Vianel credit card holder (because I don't carry a wallet), and Kiehls lip balm.
As a known heel lover, how do you feel about the sneaker’s big fashion moment?
I'm a huge lover of all things Nike and love a good designer sneaker collabo a la the Riccardo Tisci for Nike or Solange Knowles' Girls of Blaze capsule with Puma. But, I must admit, I'm much more of a collector than an actual sneaker-wearer. Heels give the illusion of a longer leg, better posture, and make an outfit look more polished and pulled together. I'm not ready to give that up for a fashion sneaker! It's just not for me.
What do you wish every girl knew about fashion?
That you can completely immerse yourself in this industry, love fashion and it's history, and be obsessed with clothes and accessories without being overly materialistic and self-involved. The person wearing the clothes will always be more important than the actual garments.
