The Daily Grail Questionnaire with Maia Torres

Part Proust, Part Vogue's 73 Questions, and Part Colbert Questionnaire, Maia Torres, answers The Daily Grail Questionnaire.

What’s your favorite time of day?

Noon! I love when it’s bright and sunny out. But when the weather’s bad, dinnertime.

Last meal: where, what, and with who?

I made sukiyaki for the first time for me and my boyfriend. I had the best sukiyaki of my life when I went to Tokyo a few months ago, so I tried to recreate that experience at home!

What is your greatest extravagance?

My handbags

Song on repeat?

Catch Me I’m Falling – Pretty Poison

My grandmother’s Estée Lauder Pleasures perfume. She passed away 15 years ago and I made sure to keep the bottle of perfume she used.

Best accessory?

Good shoes and a warm presence.

What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

I’m obsessed with Mahjong, though I haven’t played in a while. Oh, I also have the biggest crush on Charles Leclerc.

Best action movie?

Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. I love Michelle Yeoh!

Dream watch?

I have a very tiny wrist, but I love big watches. So I’m dreaming of a rose gold Aquanaut. But sometimes I think about a vintage Baignoire.

What is your motto?

I know what I bring to the table, so trust me when I say I’m not afraid to eat alone.

Style icon?

Jackie O and Princess Diana.

What do you want to be remembered for?

That I care very deeply about the people I love.
