2014 Best Dressed List

They come from all walks of life — from automotive, hospitality, and health to politics and philanthropy. What they have in common is dressing well.

Fashion style:

I grew up in a laid-back surfing community, then went to a very formal school on a golf scholarship. I think my style is a mix of both of those worlds. So it becomes stuff like beautiful silk blouses with cotton shorts.

Favorite shops:

When I splurge I go to Tender and Linda Dresner. I also like Complex and My House of Style for jewelry.

Favorite designers:

Miu Miu. Everything fits perfectly. Well, maybe it doesn’t always fit my pocketbook. I also love Lanvin and Kelly Wearstler jewelry.

Fashion debut:

Going to church as a child. I always looked forward to putting on my best duds on Sunday.

Favorite outfit:

My first really fancy dress — a Lanvin gown that I wore to a Karmanos Cancer Institute benefit. It felt so good.

Fashion hero:

I have three: Kelly Wearstler, Los Angeles fashion and interior designer (makes fashion look effortless); Lupita Nyong’o, actress (she’s so daring with color); Andi Rehm, my salesperson at Tender (boldly mixes patterns and never looks forced).

Fashion advice:

Sometimes less is more. I use this principle in my work, the way I design a room, and in the way I dress. Don’t take away the importance of a good piece by piling on a bunch of other pieces.
