FAVORITE DESIGNER: Oh, I couldn't name just one! It changes every season. I'm drawn to great tailoring: I love how Gucci designer Alessandro Michele has completely changed the brand's aesthetic. His collections are irreverent, quirky, and chic.


EVERYDAY BAG: A vintage Louis Vuitton Pochette with cherries on it from their collaboration with artist Takashi Murakami. I was a teenager when this bag came out, and I lusted after it so much! I couldn't afford it—or any designer item—back then, so now I collect bags from that time period.


APP THAT YOU LIVE FOR: Instagram. Are there any other apps?!

COLOR YOU LOVE TO WEAR: Day to day I dress in black and neutrals. For events, I like to be more daring.


MOST BELOVED BEAUTY PRODUCT: Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, an exfoliating face mask I use twice a week that makes my skin glow.

WORKOUT ROUTINE: I exercise four to five times a week, and I like fitness classes. My current favorites are Barry's Bootcamp, Training Mate, and CorePower Yoga.

HAIR MVPs: My curls can get really dry, so I like anything that keeps them looking moisturized. I use two products from DevaCurl: the B'Leave-In Miracle Curl Plumper followed by the SuperCream Coconut Curl Styler. If my hair seems dry, I'll add a bit of Playa Ritual Hair Oil, which smells so good.


GO-TO NAIL POLISH COLOR: OPI Put It in Neutral. I like my nails to be clean and classic.


ESSENTIAL JEWELRY: My wedding ring and my Cartier Juste un Clou bracelet.

MAKEUP ITEM THAT'S ALWAYS IN YOUR BAG: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. I apply it mainly as a lip balm, but it's a great multiuse product.


HIDDEN HOBBY: I've started gardening, more because I spent money on plants and want them to flourish rather than because I actually enjoy it!

LEADING LIP COLOR: My lips are naturally very pink, so most of the time I just wear lip balm. If I do color, it's a classic red like MAC Ruby Woo lipstick, which is my longtime go-to.


FAVORITE SHOES: It's impossible to pick just one pair—they're like my children! I do have a special love for vintage Manolo Blahniks.


MOST-FREQUENTED HOT SPOT: The Chateau Marmont hotel which has the best Bolognese in Los Angeles. Don't @ me!


BIGGEST INDULGENCE: Skincare. It's worth it!
