If you were given the opportunity to have a famous designer revamp your entire wardrobe, who would you choose?
I have always wanted Alexander McQueen’s clothes and Sarah Burton is doing a fine job with the collections. I have to give the final choice to Project Runway winner Sunny Fong (VAWK) who creates things that would fit right into my everyday life. What I appreciate about both McQueen and Fong is the something different they bring, something that I always try to look for in my outfits
