Kelly Wearstler: Color as Her Muse

It’s almost like Kelly Wearstler comes from a dream. The houses she designs are a dream – bold, intricate, daring, colorful, sensual and ravishing. After meeting her, I have to tell you, this is exactly the way she is.

Kelly needs no introduction but okay, if you insist, she has worked with a lot of celebrities, Cameron Diaz, Cher and Elton John just to name a few. She’s designed homes, hotels, restaurants and has her own line of home objects.

What inspires me the most about her is her boldness – the sense that she truly is herself and creates her own story and aesthetic – and what I can perceive as a laser focus on making the best of every second.

Today we meet at her home in Beverly Hills. Ah, the dream!!!

In Her Words: Jennifer Fisher

It’s no secret that I love Jennifer Fisher. I made that very clear when we published her Style Story. However, I did not touch on the incredible story behind Jennifer and her brand. During our first meeting Jennifer opened up to Pia and I about personal matters that some would only touch upon with their nearest and dearest (or a therapist). When she told us the below story it was so action oriented, direct, and honest — basically Jennifer in a nutshell. She always tells it like it is, doesn’t dwell, and instead always moves forward. Inspired by Jennifer, I returned to the studio and marched straight to Veronica’s desk, declaring that Jennifer had a story to tell and a refreshing, direct approach to dealing with the hardest curveballs life throws at you (clearly Veronica agreed). There is a lot more to Jennifer Fisher than cult hoop earrings and a killer wardrobe. She can knock a curveball out of the park. I’ll let her take it from here…

The Crown Julie

Julie Houts recently cleaned out her closet. She doesn’t know I know this but I do. I know this because our mutual friend, Madeline, recently asked if I wanted a purple jumpsuit Julie passed down to Madeline because it doesn’t fit Madeline quite right. My text response was along the lines of, “Logistically I don’t think I could wear anything of Julie’s because of my ass and emotionally I think any garment of Julie’s would be insulted to be hung alongside my plebeian cloths. But who cares, I want it and will do anything to wear something that Julie deemed worthy enough to wear even for a few short years.”
