Style talk:

Whose red carpet style do you admire?  Queen Rania of Jordan and Mme. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, both of whom I’ve had an opportunity to spend time with recently.  They are always chic, elegant, timeless and beautiful inside and out — the best combination.

What do you consider when deciding what to wear for a black-tie event, or to one that calls for cocktail attire?  Over the years, for black tie, I’ve found that a classic look is right for me.  Above all, the dress has to be one I am comfortable wearing.  I also give consideration to the event, the venue, and the crowd.  For cocktail, I stick with a classic look, but with a fun, contemporary twist.

Do you have a fashion Don’t?  Don’t be a slave to trends. Be inspired by trends to stay current, but be yourself.

Who are your current favorite designers?  Right now I am having what I call my “Young American” moment.  I’m completely obsessed with Derek LamJason Wu, and Phillip Lim.  They are fresh, relevant, contemporary, yet classic.  The foundation of my evening wardrobe is from my dearest friend, Andrew Gn.  He brings a couture-level quality to ready to wear and delivers a beautiful collection each season.

From whose closet would you most like to shop?  My friend Gela Nash-Taylor (founder of Juicy Couture)for her insane collection of Alexander McQueen!

Which are your top three must have beauty products?  Everything my mother taught me: sleep, lots of water, sunscreen, and one more — always take makeup off at night.

Beauty tip:  The best eye cream ever — Chantecaille gold energizing eye cream — I use it day and night.
