FG: How would you describe your personal style?
AG: Sophisticated chic with an edge.
FG: Name 5 items every woman should have in her closet.
AG: Perfect metallic evening purse, which holds exactly what you need for the night. A statement light coat-your coat is your calling card in NYC. Perfect colored (maybe RED) dress to pull out when you need to nail it. A unique piece of jewelry which will get you noticed and a light layer like a shawl or pashmina, in a pop of color which can be multi purpose.
FG: Who is your fashion icon and why?
AG: Daphne Guinness because she’s not afraid to show that being unique is sexy. I Love her hair and her respect for the fact that she purchases her couture instead of borrowing it.
FG: What fashion trend is your least favorite?
AG: The harem pant because it makes one look like they’re in a diaper. So unsexy. Seriously what guy wants to see a woman in a harem pant. Dresses are so much more flattering.
FG: What the weirdest item in your wardrobe?
AG: For a shoot once I took white fabric and braided into this 8 foot long rope as a prop. But it’s totally wearable as a wacky scarf.
FG: What is your style philosophy?
AG: It has to be wearable, comfortable, be the right color and cut for you, and fit into your personal style branding for it to be a winner. Be disciplined in maintaining your criteria and you will look and feel amazing. Life is too short to just look ‘ok’ or ‘nice’. “Love what you wear” is my mantra.
