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?
Song on repeat?
Catch Me I’m Falling – Pretty Poison
What is your most treasured possession?
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.
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!
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.
Jackie O and Princess Diana.
What do you want to be remembered for?
That I care very deeply about the people I love.
