These are outtakes from a lovely story we shot for Rebecca Taylor’s Le Journal, featuring the Tailored Spring 2020 collection. We sat down with the team to discuss everything from how we style up a suit to what defines a successful woman. To me, a successful woman is intuitive and always believes in herself. She makes bold decisions. She keeps her chin up no matter what and sees the good in every situation. She also likes to take on challenges, all of which create growth in all aspects of her life. Success is certainly a mindset. It’s about feeling comfortable, happy, and proud of who you are in any given moment of time.
I can always counts on a powerful ensemble from Rebecca Taylor to challenge myself to look inward, and feel amazing every single day. I love this story!
Give me a perfectly pretty dress and I immediately want to pair it with a rugged pair of Docs and fish net tights. I say man-up when it comes to what you pair with something super feminine. It could be boots and a floral frilled dress. Stilettos and an extra wide-leg pant. Always do the opposite when it comes to pairing styles. This was snapped in Chinatown in Los Angeles en route to a fitting. Every single trip I take for work is very in and out. I’m still trying to count how many flights I’ve taken just the beginning of this year! I make sure to always stay an extra night wherever I travel to really enjoy myself. Especially now, during Chinese New Year. As always, we planned a fun lunch date complete with mouth watering dumplings, fried fish, and stir fried noodles. I wish you all a prosperous and inspiring new year! It’s that time of year for us to indulge and set goals for what’s to come. This weekend at NYFW, catch me backstage at some of the best shows (can you say ALEXANDER WANG?) I’ll be covering the shows with one of my favorite beauty labels and I can’t wait to reveal who it is.
