How would you describe your style?
Classic with an edge (my Parisian friends call it my “Rock and Roll twist); bold yet effortless.

Where do you draw inspiration from?
My travels, art, music, and from people who are succeeding at doing the things that I would like to do.

Who was your first style icon?
Audrey Hepburn, from the moment I saw her in "Breakfast at Tiffany’s"

What is your style pet peeve?
Perfection. Perfect is boring (unless you are Kate Middleton, in which case, perfect is perfect).

What is your favorite way to style Anne Fontaine white shirts?
Sleeves rolled up, with a statement cuff (like my favorite Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet) or stacked bracelets, jeans, and a great pair of heels.

What are your favorite Anne Fontaine pieces to style from day to night?
I love my EPOLINE knit from the most recent collection. I always feel confident when I’m wearing black, and it also happens to be the easiest color to transition from day to night. The lace details on the top give it a whimsical, romantic vibe that works perfectly in the day with a pencil skirt and babies, for example, but can be transitioned into a sexier evening look with a great pair of trousers or skinny black jeans and sky high heels.
