It’s a dream to be working with Estée Lauder for the launch of the Luxury Collectionof fragrances. I gravitated towards Infinite Sky, one of the eight new Estée Lauder Luxury Collection fragrances. This one felt special in that it feels warm, confident, and sensual. It’s a powerful amber spicy fragrance that is unforgettable from the moment you put it on. The burst of scent from the Sichuan pepper, Madagascar vanilla, and Leatherwood gives me the bold energy I crave when wearing my favorite evening dress. It fills up my senses with pure happiness and reminds me that anything in life is possible as long as I keep looking up. Infinite Sky is about yin and yang. I like to think it embodies all parts of my personality, both the soft and the strong.
This happens to be one of my all time favorite red carpet looks. I wore a head-to-toe Miu Miu look for a night out in NYC to celebrate the new Miu Miu Nuit collection. It has sparkles and pearls, with a laid-back cool factor. It also happens to be one of my most comfortable red carpet looks. Perfect for dancing at the Miu Miu club, late into the night.
I got to site down with the Lulu & Georgia team here at home for an interview to discuss chic holiday decor, how I ended up in Dumbo, and the perks of having your sister and best friend as your neighbor, living in the same building in fact! When browsing the Lulu & Georgia site, I went for pieces I knew I’d keep forever when shopping for my holiday decor, with a very minimal approach. That’s my mindset whenever I’m decorating or picking up new pieces. To keep it minimal but merry, I just added a little green with a eucalyptus garland, fresh flowers, and some beautiful mood lighting.
Maybe invest in a timeless chandelier or table lamp. Centerpieces always add an artistic element to your holiday decor that feels timeless but fun.
My tip is to keep your decor elegant, with a less is more approach. The cake stand is a really special and cool piece because everyone loves dessert, and it’s beautiful. I kept my color palette mostly gray and beige, with little pop with the red ranunculus. The wine glasses in blush are elevated but still understated, which I love.

This incredible Annakiki blazer is my core statement piece this holiday season. It makes me feel like a ballerina with it’s fun, voluminous waist. It super high fashion, yet also super wearable. We all need some Annakiki in our lives. Who agrees?
