How would you describe your personal style?

Comfortable, classic, eclectic. Something of a Gangster Grandma.

What is in your purse right now?

I have a shameful chewing gum habit, so gum- always. Dark chocolate squares. About seven shades of lipstick (hey, you never know what color may deem appropriate!) And a good luck charm gifted to me from my mother.

What is the one item in your wardrobe you can’t live without?

My tan leather jacket . It was my big splurge while living abroad in Italy. I rarely go a day without it.

What is the one clothing item that instantly takes you from feeling blue to feeling phenomenal?

Heels always provide an instant confidence (and height!) boost.

Go-to beauty product?

NARS Pure Radiant tinted moisturizer. I’m convinced it adds a real life Instagram filter to the face. Effortlessly flawless.

Beauty splurge?

Ahh. Chanel beauty products. Simply the best, although simply expensive. But worth the investment! Recent splurge: Chanel Perfection Lumiere.

What do you do with a bad hair day?

Top-knot bun or high-ponytail.

Your go-to nail color?

Fiji by Essie is my signature color. In fact I talk about it in my post How To Grab Celebrity Attention And Get The Interview.

Effortlessly messy or always done up?

Always done up gets exhausting, effortlessly messy is awesome. I love a little effort that looks intentional.

Who is your celebrity style crush?

Changes bi-weekly. However, Rosie Huntington-Whitley remains somewhat of a consistent style crush.

Who is your celebrity role model?

Gisele Bundchen, Olivia Wilde, Jay-Z.

Who is your favorite designer?

Isabel Marant

If I could be anywhere, I would be _____________.

12 years old and playing in my childhood home . Or a cafe in Paris.

Favorite red carpet event of the year?

The Academy Awards. A polygamist marriage of film, television, and red carpet fashion.

Who is the celebrity that never disappoints on the red carpet?

Angelina Jolie. Her style, in my opinion, is a proper balance of sophistication and sexy.

Your favorite red carpet moment in history?

This is a moment in my personal history, but the first time I stepped on the red carpet at the Emmys. One of the most surreal moments in my life thus far.

If you could have drinks with any celebrity who would it be?

Olivia Wilde. Ideally exchanging witty banter over craft beers.

Favorite restaurant and why?

Lou Malnati’s Chicago. I’m a Chicago girl. Best deep dish pizza, hands down. Don’t you dare let anyone tell you otherwise. They’re lying.

Coolest hangout spot?

Chateau Marmont.

What celebrity do people say you resemble?

Strangers say Amanda Seyfried. My mom says Blake Lively. I say both are pretty darn complimentary. (Brandi – We agree!!!)
