Office essentials: The perfect cocktail dress for the red carpet; simple black pants to dress up or down; and tons of jewelry —my wardrobe rack is colorful but simple, and jewelry glams up my look.

Style principles: My daily look depends on where I'm going and who I'm talking to. For example, when I interviewed Martha Stewart, I wore a conservative cocktail dress; for Oprah, high-waisted black pants and a blazer. I dress to impress, but I don't want to distract.
