How would you describe your personal style? I think my style is simply chic. I’m not too frilly, I tend to do a little bit of menswear, and I like tailored looks. I never dress promiscuous. Whenever I show leg, I cover my arms, and viceversa. So I like to show a little bit of skin somewhere, but not everywhere. How has your fashion sense evolved along the success you’ve achieved in your professional career? I think that when I started out there ten years ago, I had the big long hair, I was hiding behind my hair, and I wore low rider jeans and short tops. I don’t regret any of it. When I look back at the pictures, it was what was in fashion, and all the girls were wearing, and it was my style at the time. But I look back and I laugh. You’ve had many different looks. You’re quite the chameleon! I’ve definitely had different looks throughout the years, and I like that. I think that’s what keeps things interesting. That is what I love about fashion, and hair and makeup: that is not forever. It’s not like plastic surgery; if you don’t like it, you can change it any

moment. That is why I dyed my hair blonde, then black, or went back to brown. Or cut it short, and then have it long. I think you should have fun with your look and fashion. What are some of your go-to statement pieces when it comes to jewelry and accessories? I like women to have a signature piece of jewelry. For me, I wear the 3 Cartier love bracelets together, and they have special meaning to me. It’s funny because now I do photo shoots and the people always say, “Don’t take the bracelet off because it’s part of who you are,” so I think [you should] have a piece that you can wear all the time that is a signature piece. So it has become part of your brand. Yeah, it definitely has. What have been your three favorite red carpet looks that you have worn? One of my favorite looks was at the Grammys a couple of years ago. I wore


an orange Alex Perry dress, which was stunning. I had my hair back - it was a halter cut - and it was really pretty. I loved that dress. I love Basil Soda. I wore one of their white gowns for the Oscars - it’s always the Oscars - and the detail on it was amazing. I think those were two great looks! Let me think of a third one… What about last year, the princess style gown? Yes, yes! Thank you so much for reminding me. I loved that dress. It was by Australian designer, Paolo Sebastian, and it was simply spectacular. It appeared on so many magazines... That dress actually was the #5 most googled Oscar dress of the night, behind like Kerry Washington and Jennifer Lawrence. It was all these A-list movie stars, and then, me! Well, you are considered one now! Haha no, no. It was very exciting because I was not nominated, but my dress was so loved by everyone. It was really cool. April 2015 - BELLO
