What’s your favorite time of day?
I’m a night owl but I love the optimism of the morning.
Last meal: where, what, and with who?
If you mean (literally) the last meal I had, I’m eating as I type this at a charming osteria in my new neighborhood in Milan, Dal Vinattiere. The dish is Pane Frattau, (I have no idea what that means) but it’s delicious (as is the red wine) and I’m eating with my beagle Charlie! If you mean my last meal on planet earth, its obviously french fries (with all of the condiments) and a cocktail.
What is your greatest extravagance?
Buying a 3 pack of white tee shirts at Prada!
Song on repeat?
Let’s Get Lost, Chet Baker
What is your most treasured possession?
My personal and creative freedom.
Openness, positivity, and a smile. Being kind will get you much further than any handbag.
What’s one thing people don’t know about you?
Despite my presence on social media - that I like a little mystery!
Best action movie?
What’s an action movie?
I once wore a gorgeous vintage watch for a shoot with Sotheby's that was more of a bracelet really, but it had two faces, so you could always have two timezones and feel incredibly important. I like functional, no frills watches or watches that are like jewelry. No in between.
What is your motto?
It takes guts to be gentle and kind (The Smiths)
What do you want to be remembered for?
