The best style advice I ever received was... that you don’t want something because it’s beautiful, you want something that looks beautiful on you. 

Favorite designers are... Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera and Dolce & Gabbana.

My favorite designer of all time is... Christian Dior. His vintage pieces and how they complemented a woman’s figure were truly works of art. 

My makeup approach is... dictated by the event and what I’m wearing. Anything from simple and relaxed to full-on smoky eye glam.

My secret weapon when it comes to fashion is... a great accessory. It can totally transform an outfit. A little fur, feathers or other texture can really take something up a notch, whereas a cool avant-garde piece can take a conservative outfit and give it a little something extra but still be appropriate for the occasion. 

Favorite trendsetter of the day is... J-Lo, hands down. She works so many different looks and does them effortlessly. There isn’t a look, hairstyle or color she won’t try. I think she inspires women to get out of their comfort zones.
