If you could have lunch with anyone ( dead or alive) who would you choose and why?
I would love to have lunch with Iris Apfel. I feel her and I have similar style, or what I'd want my style to be like. I also feel like we would be like two sassy girls who sit on a patio in our big Chanel sunglasses, with all our accessories people watching and talking about models who fall and everything that is in at the moment. We also wouldn't be eating lunch, we'd be sipping martinis. I would love to pick her brain on how she got to her level and just be around the positive energy to remain inspired in my own fashion adventure.
