1.Who would you want to play you in a movie?
2.I wish I could…
Fly, speak multiple languages (or just one really well), juggle, sing, leap tall buildings in a single (or double) bound – the list goes on
3.My first style memory is…
Hands down – my grandmother’s closet. My grandfather was the architect Morris Lapidus and they traveled the world for his career designing hotels. She was a major collector and her closet was packed with the most exotic finds – furs, feathers, outrageous shoes, capes, caftans – the works. Her closet was literally an entire room and I would run there every time I visited.
4.I could not live without my….
family – I’m truly blessed to actually be related to people I adore who are so smart and keep me grounded.
5.I could live without…
A car. I’m currently obsessed with Uber – an app-based car service that takes me everywhere.
I know it’s cliché but I was one of those little girls who grew up loving horses. I started showing when I was 10 and continued until I went to college. I got back into riding 10 years ago. I spend weekends riding my Irish Warmblood, Hardy, at Chastain Horse Park. A Warmblood is a European breed that combines the speed of a race horse with the endurance of a plow horse. Irish Warmbloods tend to be big. Hardy is huge and is actually way too big for me but – like ridiculously expensive, fabulous shoes that don’t fit quite right – I had to have him. I’m drawn to the discipline and beauty of the sport. It’s the most inspiring and humbling thing I’ve ever known. I love this picture because you can see the power in his movement and the way the light catches his coat.
