Rachel Roy: What Every Woman Needs in Her Wardrobe PLUS Travel, Style and Beauty Must-haves
MM: What are some of your favorite travel destinations?
RR: I love the beach. Nothing is better than lazy days listening to the waves with my girls, Ava and Tallulah. The sound of the waves is my favorite sound in the world. It brings me to my center.
MM: What are some of your travel tips?
RR: When traveling you need ease of fabrics and comfort. Pack knits that won’t wrinkle and items that can be mixed and matched. Everything in your suitcase should work from going out from day to night.
MM: Your makeup always looks perfect, what products are in your make up bag?
RR: I always have a little beauty survival kit tucked away of essentials whether I’m going from desk to dinner or for when my team needs to grab me for a quick pic. I use lots of Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener for those under eye situations (no sleep!), Estee Lauder Turbo Lash mascara to make me look awake and I always carry Burt’s Bee’s lip balm.
MM: I love your personal style and you always look so chic. What is your favorite recent fashion purchase?
RR: I like a strong, confident classic look that has a bit of an edge. I recently bought a pair of black Celine pumps. I wear them with everything! Nars makes a beautiful crayon in red square. It’s just the right amount of matte that I love in a strong color.
MM: Favorite accessories?
RR: I like jewelry that tells a story. Wear what you love and have worn before. I find confidence in wearing sentimental pieces– even if it means I wear it every day.
MM: Worst fashion faux pas?
RR: I think women feel pressure to dress to the trends and not for their body type, personality or environment.
