The best way to describe my approach to fashion is… classic, with a spicy twist.

My fashion philosophy is: Always dress to impress. I got this from my mom, who always reminds of this. Coco Chanel also said, ‘Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.’ I couldn’t agree more!

My favorite designers are... Diane Von Furstenberg—her wrap dresses are my favorite. They’re so figure-flattering and can be dressed up or down. And I love Karl Lagerfeld—the way he has carried on the Chanel legacy is wonderful.

As far as accessories go, I prefer... not to overdo it. I have staple pieces that I wear from day to day, including my Yurman bangles, Rolex watch, engagement ring-wedding ring and diamond studs.

For a special event, I’ll always go with a statement earring or necklace—never both—and a bracelet.

Stilettos or blocks? Stilettos—it’s such a sexy look… and hopefully they’re comfy.

Black or white? Black and white—classic!
