HER STYLE: Definitely modern, relaxed—timeless with an edge and a flair for drama. I love rich textiles and textured fabric.

FASHION ROOTS: I think of fashion as part of daily life. But I started pursuing it professionally when I joined Leon Max, the Russian-American designer and retailer, back in 2000.

INDISPENSABLE WARDROBE ITEM: My racer-back bra.

FAVORITE LABELS: Nude, an Italian brand, and XD, from Croatia. They both resonate with my style, and I carry both lines in my shop.

FASHION ICON: Angelina Jolie. In addition to her humanitarian efforts and exotic beauty, her style is so effortless, refined, elegant and luxe.

BEST-EVER FASHION BUY: A pair of black crepe cargo pants I bought for $8 on sale nine years ago. I’ve been wearing them every season, every year, and I continue to get compliments each time I wear them.

THOUGHTS ON AGING: Embrace it. It’s better than the alternative.

INDISPENSABLE ACCESSORY: Diamond stud earrings my mother gave me. I wear them almost every day.

MAKEUP TIP EVERY WOMAN CAN APPRECIATE: Invest in long-lasting lipstick in a color is that’s right for your skin tone. I use Super Stay Matt Ink by Maybelline, color No. 180.

FAVORITE FRAGRANCE: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir.

FASHION NO-NO: Visible panty lines.

WHY FASHION MATTERS: Fashion is a vehicle and an art of self-expression—it distinguishes us from each other.
