“A Beauty Named…” is a new concept thought up to shine light on women we believe are stylish, interesting, and talented in their own unique way. They represent a rare group who value the smallest treasures in life, whether it is a good meal, small fashion accessory, or photograph that inspires. Audrey Hepburn said it best: “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
Graphic Designer & Photographer. Los Angeles, CA.
How would you describe your personal style?
I tend to be drawn to things that are a little architectural and very tailored. I’m a big fan of neutrals, but every so often I’ll have a hankering for graphic prints in vibrant colors. The silhouette is always something modest and classic though.
What is your most cherished item?
I have a dress that I recently splurged on from Whit that is pretty special to me. It’s the most beautiful orange hue with a great graphic print. I like pieces that you don’t see every day and make a bit of a statement.
Where is your favorite place to dine?
There are so many great restaurants in Los Angeles, but my go-to favorite is Little Dom’s. Unfussy menu, great service, a relaxed vibe, and classic decor.
What is the best advice you’ve received from your parents?
My dad once said to me, “Decide what you want to be and just go do it.” Whenever I hit a road block or am doubting myself, I remember this simple statement and am reminded how lucky I am to make my passion my job.
What are you extremely passionate about?
Design, traveling, and learning—three things that are constantly evolving and will always be a source of inspiration for me.
What lady do you think embodies pure elegance and style?
Clémence Poésy really gets it right in my book.
What do you consider a staple in a lady’s wardrobe?
A great pair of jeans. You can dress ’em up, down, and when they fit well, they make just about anything you put on top look good.
What does the word “gentleman” mean to you?
A kind heart, a genuine soul, and above all, someone who is respectful. Respect goes a long way.
