For these five DC trendsetters, fashion is more than what meets the eye.

The founder of Bent Frame Entertainment Media and Kaye Labs wears many hats.

My approach to fashion is... to ensure I am comfortable. When it comes to social causes… I wear something that combines my style with the theme. For example, I have earrings made from recycled glass bottles. I am drawn to… Chiara Boni La Petite Robe dresses. They take me from day to evening. A designer who’s knocked it out of the park is… Versace. There is a consistent balance of femininity, edge and art. The last accessory I bought was… a clutch that I don’t actually need to clutch. My power piece is... a Coach bag I found in the men’s department. I didn’t realize it until I made the purchase. I have no regrets. The best style advice I’ve received was… I watched a documentary on Diana Vreeland in which she said that she’d told a model to always have her toes painted, even if no one will see them. My favorite trend is... hats. They not only complete a look, they help define it.
