Spring clothing trends she loves: Bold, colorful prints. “They make outfits happy.”

This season, she’s: “Looking forward to the revival of the hat. Kate Middleton has shown us classics, while Lady Gaga has expressed the more wild side. I’m excited about the ladies chapeau contest at the Devon Horse Show, and seeing all the dresses and hats at the Radnor Hunt Races.”

She’s an: Accessories person. “I love jewelry—especially my Soviet Komandirskie wind-up watch that my mom got me from Moscow, my huge citrine Georg Dobler ring from Helen Drutt, and my classic yellow-gold, acorn-top earrings, all topped off with a fascinator I created at Milica in the Hat Millinery.”

Style icon: Grace Kelly. “She’s simply timeless.”

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday afternoon out: “Jeans with a tailored shirt, topped by a sweater or blazer.”

Go-to dressy outfit for a Saturday night out in the city: “A flowy, feminine dress or form-fitting, classic, usually black dress just above the knee. Never a mini-skirt—you’ve got to leave a bit of mystery.”

Favorite splurge: Purses. “I can never have too many. I love Louis Vuitton for classics that last forever, and Fendi is for fun.”
