Soho House Group, New York City, NY
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 be 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.”
My style is quite classic with an edgy twist. I’m a big believer in less is more. I love layers, textures and interesting detailing. It’s all about looking chic and feeling comfortable.
What is your most cherished item?
All of my shoes! A shoe can change the most ordinary outfit into something extraordinary.
Where is your favorite place to dine?
There are so many amazing restaurants in New York, but my current favorite is Perla in the West Village. Good vibe and absolutely delicious food.
What is the best advice you’ve received from your parents?
My parents continue to give me invaluable advice every day. They’ve always told me to love what you do, work hard and appreciate everything. They are incredible people and I admire them to the fullest.
What are you extremely passionate about?
In no particular order: New York. Digital Media. People. Good coffee. Music. Fashion.
What lady do you think embodies pure elegance and style?
Carine Roitfeld in more ways than one.
What do you consider a staple in a lady’s wardrobe?
Every lady should have a classic blazer in their closet. Blazers add structure to your frame and can easily transition your outfit.
