Fashion Fill-in-the-Blanks with Designer Anna Corinna

Last week at Ford Artists Beauty Suite, the lovely Anna Corinna of the design duo Foley + Corinna sat down to play our Fashion Fill-in-the-Blanks game. Read on for her take on nail art, Rachel Zoe, and NYFW people watching.

1.    The one style tip everyone needs to know …

"Wear what you want to wear and be comfortable, but when you walk in a room it should be amazing. "

2.    My most treasured wardrobe item …

"I love my jewelery. I just love it. I love looking at it, I love wearing it. I couldn't even tell you one piece."

3.    I’m bored to death of this trend …

"Nail art. You know what it is? I look at blogs all the time, and I'm bored of seeing it."

4.    I never leave the house without …

"I have a mantra. It's phone-wallet-keys. It's become a thing. Those are the three things that you need. And if you leave without one of them, you're in trouble."

5.    If I could raid anyone’s closet, it would be …

"Rachel Zoe. That's probably a tacky answer, but I love everything she has. And I know she has a ton of vintage, so…"

6.    My most memorable fashion blunder …

"I don't know if it's a blunder, but one time I was being interviewed for something, and the guy that was interviewing me made this whole statement about women's jeans and how awful they were. And it was one of those things, where I looked down (and I was wearing jeans). So I don't if that was my blunder, but it made me feel really, really, really bad. But he was this cute, cool guy so I was sort of like … oh. And I didn't forget it, so clearly it made an impact. I still wear jeans though."

7.    My guilty pleasure …

"Embarassing TV shows. Bravo."

8.    Best fashion week memory/experience …

"We used to work with Anna Sui a lot. And that first time she invited us to her show, it was like the first real show I went to, and seeing it and being in the middle of it. That was like, my best. And honestly, I love Anna Sui and her shows are beautiful. So that was the best. The biggest and best."

9.    My favorite thing about fashion week …

"I love seeing all the people. Going to the shows and whatever. But seeing people on the streets is amazing. Because everyone's always dressed up and always going somewhere, and they're from all around the world. And that's actually more interesting than going to the shows, is seeing who's coming out in what and just hailing a cab."

10.     Fashion week in one word …

"Exciting? That's not a great word. I'll think of another and come find you later."
