– What is your favorite place
Gstaad and Sevilla. Totally different!
– What is fashion for you?
Fashion is something that must never be blindly followed, but a reminder of passing time and the result of a million influences. It is also whimsical. I prefer individual style, each woman’s personal assemblage.
– Name a chic woman
A chic woman is not necessarily very beautiful, or very rich. But she is smart enough to be well-groomed and polished, and she only wears things that show off her best features. She’s clever with accessories too.
– What is an elegance to you?
Looking your best, effortlessly. Never look uncomfortable or “dressed up”. You own the clothes, they don’t own you.
Drawing and painting. A bit more than hobbies, I take years to complete anything!
What is your favorite painter?
Although I admire many artists, having studied Art History, my favorite is Henry de Toulouse Lautrec, his mastery of line and color and his sensuality still shine through.
Jazz. On a desert island, Jazz of all ages. In case of sadness, Chet Baker.
I love cats but have always had dogs too.
– Favorite food?
A good platter of cheese, crisp baguette, and great wine.
– City or countryside?
I live in the country but miss the city, except when it’s very hot.
– Sea or mountain?
Mountain first but only with water to swim in: lake, river, pool. I’m a water baby!
– Sparkly or tonal?
– Muted or bright colors?
– Heels or flats?
Both. The only two things I won’t wear are white boots or miniskirts. There’s a time for everything, that’s all, folks!
