I’m always happiest when things are calm and easy before an event. I listened to Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline, drank lots of water, and applied lots of moisturizer. My stylist, Kat Typaldos, and I have been working together three or four years now, so we just hung out and gossiped and ate some macarons.
Louis Vuitton represents such classic French elegance to me and I’ve been so inspired Nicolas Ghesquiere’s work these past few years especially.
I love the world building element of fashion shows, all of the meticulous thought and detail and planning that goes into a show. It always gives me a lot of inspiration for designing my own stage shows. The lighting, the music, the clothes — its all about how you want someone in the audience to feel.
