MY DREAMS
"Funny that two of my muses are English, because Tod's DNA is completely Anglo-Italian. When I finished designing the buttery leather trench, I realized how totally Julie Christie it was — she was the sexy-smart icon in the '60s. And I've loved working with Sienna Miller, one of the last great fashion risk-takers."

MY SCHEMES
"Since I've just given up smoking, I'll occasionally indulge in French toast. Especially during the shows, I need to be smiling, not dieting! Classical music, particularly Schubert, makes me happy, too. Don't they say playing Mozart makes babies smarter? Maybe it'll work for my next collection."
