Who are your style icons?
"Natalie Portman’s husband, the Black Swan choreographer [Benjamin Millepied]. French men really understand what’s stylish and what fits them well."
Where do you like to shop?
"For something interesting and specific, I go thrifting. Some of my favorite men’s designers are Thomas Pink, Etro, and Ben Sherman."
What's on your fashion wish list?
“A Brooks Barbican leather shoulder bag. They’re a famous British bike saddle company that’s been around since 1866 and their bags are supposed to be the best.”
What is your one must-have wardrobe item?
“I’ve had this brown suede jacket that goes with everything, even jeans. I couldn’t replace that.”
How has your style evolved over the years?
“I’ve become a lot more adventurous, especially with color. I used to only wear neutral colors, and sometimes I still do, but now I love a flash of color.”
Funniest fashion moment?
“This shirt, I actually bought it for a nineties party and wore it with a Looney Tunes t-shirt. A year later, I pulled it out of my closet and started actually wearing it. I was smart enough to donate the Tasmanian Devil shirt.”
