    I can't live without: James Perse's high-waisted skirts in olive green, black, and tan. You can wear them as skirts or tube dresses. With the right layers, they work for every season.

    Reality-TV style myth: People think they have to spend a lot of money on designer things because they are on camera or being photographed all the time — but you can look great without spending a fortune.

    Style note:Going from day to night can be as easy as changing your fragrance. For day I wear Pure Poison by Dior, then at night, Ange Ou Demon by Givenchy.
