What’s your fashion philosophy? I spend more on shoes, because I think they say a lot about the person. I buy my shoes from Gucci. What I love is the versatility—I can wear them with jeans but also with a suit and tie.

Where else do you shop? I buy my jeans from Denim Bar, and I buy shirts from Muléh or Calvin Klein in New York.

Favorite designers? Tom Ford for Men. I love his style. I love Gucci and the simple stuff from J. Crew.

Biggest splurge? It was sort of an accident. I bought a pair of Patrick Cox shoes in London. I thought I was paying $400, but it was pounds, so I ended up spending over $800.

Best bargain? I bought an amazing Dolce & Gabbana velvet blazer at a Florida outlet mall. It was originally $1,200, and I got it for only $50.
