What do you have planned for the holidays?

“It will be a country Christmas in Ohio with family and then off to Jamaica, where we’ll have a big party with great friends at The Rock House for New Year’s. I also plan to throw a few good parties at home for the season.”

What will you wear?
“A long yellow dress with white sequins from my line for New Year’s, and in Ohio, I’ll probably wear my sweater dresses. I also have a vintage bias-cut gown that I plan to wear to one of my parties.”

What gift are you hoping to get this year?
“A 15-minute meeting with Mayor [Michael]Bloomberg so I can state my case about saving the Garment Center.”

What do you have planned for the holidays?

“Retail store appearances in San Francisco and Hawaii. Plus, Christmas with the whole family at my sister’s house in New Jersey. We do the annual videoing and photo taking of the family and kids on the stairs and dance to the Wanderlust album. The rest of the holiday will be with my three-year-old granddaughter, Layla, in the sun and in the beach somewhere.”

What will you wear?
“On the road, my iconic BJ clothes. At my sister’s, I’ll wear my red Christmas midcalf jersey dress with a Santa hat. And on vacation, a swimsuit.”

What gift are you hoping to get this year?
“A new hot lover.”
