Are you wearing one of your own dresses?
Yup, this is a Pink Tartan. I just picked it up today, so I had my fingers crossed that it would fit right.

So you designed it for tonight?
Yes. I don’t do long dresses—they make me feel like Barbie.

Tell us about your accessories.
The shoes are Chanel. I’ve just started following Karl Lagerfeld on Twitter. The bag is Jil Sander, and the stole is vintage.

What are the big trends this spring?
This spring? God, I’m already working on spring 2010. This spring, prints are huge.

What is your one must-have item for a Brazilian getaway?
A bikini.

By whom?
Pink Tartan.

Would you ever go thong?
No. I’m not that confident.
