Who What Wearstler
Goddess of modern interior design Kelly Wearstler has expanded her aesthetic from mansions and boutique hotels to an eponymous ready to wear collection. We sat down with the LA-based icon to find out how the human body inspires her prints, her celeb style crush and what she likes to sip at the end of a stylish day.
Tidbits: What inspired your fall collection?
Kelly: This collection is inspired by Surrealism. The prints have a three dimensional quality and depth to them and the jewelry has a Surrealist take with lips and body parts.
Tidbits: What celebrity would you love to dress?
Kelly: I love Penelope Cruz. She's amazing, sweet, beautiful, chic and just incredible.
Tidbits: Favorite get up and go hairstyle?
Kelly: Down and unbrushed - nothing over-styled. I like raw hair.
Tidbits: Do you have a go-to LBD or are you a color girl?
Kelly: I love black. We have a great tunic style black dress with perforation that I love.
Tidbits: Nail polish you love for fall.
Kelly: I'm into a periwinkle blue.
Tidbits: What was your favorite interior to design?
Kelly: The Avalon Hotel just because it was my first hotel project and I learned so much. Then I'd have to say my home, it's like a lab for me. Having kids, it's about making it a great comfortable family home, but you still want it to be chic and cool.
Tidbits: What cocktail goes best while lounging in one of your hotels?
Kelly: A mojito!
