LF: It’s a lovely crisp sunny morning in Paris! What outfit do you reach for?
DVT: A vintage 50’s dress with a voluminous skirt paired with ballet flats.
LF: What (or who!) do you never leave the house without?
DVT: My iphone, a red lipstick, and credit cards.
LF: Where in Paris do you adore to shop, and is there a secret address we might be able to coax you into revealing?
DVT: I don’t often shop for clothes in paris, actually, but I do like a place called Chez Sarah in the Paris flea market. I also love Mariages Frères for afternoon tea, and to buy Violette scented tea.
LF: LUX FIX time machine at your service, where would you love to go to gather inspiration for your costumes?
DVT: Paris during the Belle Epoque, not necessarily for costume inspiration, but because I’m sure it would be incredible to see such glamour and beauty on the streets of Paris.

LF: Time machine still available, which stylish women though the ages are you most inspired by?
DVT: Baby Paley, Lisa Fonssigrives, Dovima, Isabella Blow and The Marchesa Casati.
LF: Is there any one thing you feel every girl should have in their beauty arsenal?
DVT: I think every woman should find the perfect vibrant lipstick, the many shades of reds and fuschia are always timeless and chic. Even if you cannot wear red, try other shades of bright/deep lipstick until you find the right one. Matte bright colors are especially sophisticated.

LF: Dancer, author, actress, costume designer, do you have anything you can’t wait to do next in your career?
DVT: I think I’ve dabbled in nearly everything I want to do that I’m good at. Between my lingerie line, my makeup line, my books and my perfume, I stay very busy.
LF: We adored the Keds and playsuit you wore at Coachella. Is that one of your signature summer downtime looks?
DVT: Coachella is always a special fashion moment, I love the challenge of finding comfortable, danceable looks that are chic.
LF: Finally, what in your wardrobe would you save from a fire?
DVT: My Jean Paul Gaultier “Hussard” haute couture gown, it’s incredible, I can’t believe I own it!
