Occupation: International Director of PR and Marketing
MY STYLE: Class meets rock & roll. I love Thomas Wylde, Chapurin, John Richmond, Christian Louboutin. At home, it’s maximalist and eclectic—my husband, Stephen, collects stuffed animals and glass fish, so we manage to fill up every space!
I LOVE LONDON BECAUSE: London has so much to offer from every angle: great museums and amusements, theaters and musicals, galleries and restaurants, markets, and lots of beautiful parks.
This colorful world-food restaurant is perfect for a delicious meal out with the whole family. We love having the best of many different cultures (think huevos rancheros and muesli alike) so easily at our fingertips. What’s more, Giraffe’s elaborate menu has a handy coding system to ensure you know everything about what you’re eating.
We love stopping into Selfridges (the hip, young sister of the London department store scene) for the designer duds and sweets bar, as well as the always-good people watching. International shoppers needn’t spend too modestly to avoid overweight baggage fees on the way home, as Selfridges will ship your purchases, internationally, for you.
Victoria & Albert Museum
With a collection spanning over 2,000 years and including various media from bookbinding to fine art painting, the V&A is, undeniably, one of the best museums in the world. We especially love its collection and exhibitions of contemporary design.
The Connaught Hotel
Tireless and attentive renovations mixed with modern state-of-the-art technology and design makes this historic Mayfair hotel one of the most posh and comfortable in London. And the hotel’s concierge, butler, and chauffeur services help to make a Central London stay easy and stress-free.
What began in 1889 as a local bakery in Northern France is now an international “go-to” spot for delicious, crusty, and authentic bread. We admire Paul’s ability to uphold a quaint, around-the-corner vibe while still maintaining utter consistency in quality and taste.
