What do you have planned for the holidays?

“I am taking the family to see their cousins, aunts and grandparents in New Zealand.”

What will you wear?
“Well, it will be summer in New Zealand, so I will probably be wearing my basic uniform, which includes Italian army pants and Rebecca Taylor voile blouses.”

What gift are you hoping to get this year?
“I’m angling for an Hermès scarf, but I’d be happy with just my whole family being together for the first time.”


What do you have planned for the holidays?

“I am planning to spend the holidays with my family on Fisher Island in Miami. Let’s just say that, by the end of my trip, I may feel inspired to design golf and tennis apparel for the missy market and a collection of bedazzled flip-flops. It’s also my dad’s birthday on New Year’s, so it’s always a big family reunion.”

What will you wear?
“I will most likely wear my BCBGeneration one-shoulder minidress in gold lamé.”

What gift are you hoping to get this year?
”I don’t need anything, but if anyone’s taking notes I want...a camera, a MacBook, Chanel booties, new makeup, Brian Atwood over-the-knee suede boots, a new house, a navy blue vintage Porsche — you know, nothing fancy.”
