Three words that describe your style:
Minimalist, understated, unexpected
Five items in your closet that you couldn’t live without:
1. Hermès red and white Brides de Gala Plit Plat
2. Alaïa white laser cut leather sneakers
3. Dries Van Noten black satin pantsuit
4. Stella McCartney logo tee
5. Jil Sander navy blue trench dress
Describe one of your most favourite outfits:
It is a short black structured cape worn with black capri dress pants and a vintage diamond brooch. I usually pair it with sneakers for a daytime look, and then silver or black pumps whenever I need to dress it up for night time. It’s one of my favourite looks because not only is it comfortable, I receive a lot of compliments whenever I wear it!
The #1 item on your fashion wish list:
An Hermés canvas bag jacket for my Kelly bags
Your style icon:
Cate Blanchett—I always pay attention to what she is wearing
