How would you describe your style? Simple, easy and classic with a touch of the unexpected. I guess you could sum it up by saying I love basics that make a statement.
What is your favorite movie? Out of Africa.
What is your favorite place you've ever traveled to? Paris.
What is currently on your iPod? Lulu And The Lampshades, Sharon Van Etten, Alexander, El Sportivo & The Blooz.
Do you think music plays an important role in film? Yes, definitely.
What is your favorite movie soundtrack? I loved Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette soundtrack--the fact that she paired contemporary music with the story is so smart. I also love the Babel soundtrack, which is more of a score but still gorgeous.
What is one item of clothing or jewelry that you are always wearing? A gold ring that was my grandmother's, she had very tiny fingers so I wear it on my pinky. Also, a pair of mismatched earrings. One is a diamond stud that was my grandmother's and the other is an abstract gold stud that my good friend gave to me as a birthday present.
What are you wearing? Rachel Comey shoes, Isabel Marant skirt, J.Crew top, J.Crew hat, Steven Alan bag, Claire Vivier computer case.
