You own a lot of coats.
AO: LOOK AT THIS ONE, TOP SHOP! MY FAVORITE PURCHASE EVER. EVERYONE STOPS ME ON THE STREET ABOUT THIS COAT. THANK G-D TOP SHOP IS COMING TO NEW YORK. MY H&M COAT IS THE SAME STYLE AS MARC. THE RED VALENTINO, SOMEONE GAVE TO ME. I WOULD NEVER BUY IT. TOO GROWN UP.
If you could bring back one style trend what would it be?
Who is your style icon?
AO: MADAME COURREGES. I MET HER IN PARIS. SHE WAS WEARING OVERALLS, ALWAYS OVERALLS, AND VERY SHORT BLACK AND WHITE HAIR. SHE’S VERY TOUGH. I WAS WEARING A GAULTIER JACKET AND SHE SAID TO MY FRIEND, “SHE CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT.”
What do you love about your closets?
ONE OF THE REASONS I BOUGHT MY APARTMENT WAS THE CLOSET IN THE BEDROOM.
