How would you describe your style?

CB: “My style is urban classic. I like a lot of preppy stuff, but then I throw in some sneaks or a headband to make it not so nerdish.”

CT: “My style is just colorful and crazy. It doesn’t have to always match either.”

Do you have a favorite color?

CT: “Last year it was orange. Anything orange I had to have. Now pink is it for me.”

What’s your fall must-have?

CB: “My fitted fur-trim coat and big Marc Jacobs-inspired bag.”

CT: “Colorful shoes. I’m not wearing any more black or brown shoes.”

Speaking of shoes, tell me about what you have on.

CB: “I bought these Nikes from France for 30 euros. That’s cheap for retro Nikes. I’ve had them for about three years now, and I still wear them and get compliments.”

CT: “I bought my shoes from Barefeet. I got them in green because they were such a weird color for a boot. I had nothing to wear with them, and then I remembered I bought a Live 8 shirt this summer, so I just wore it with boots.”

What do you want to be after you graduate from high school?

CB: “A plastic surgeon.”

CT: “A pharmaceutical doctor.”

Describe your style.

“Euro-urban. The slimmer cut of my clothes is the Euro and the urban part is rocking sneaks and baseball caps. My motto is always wear something that pops.”

What’s your fall must-have?

“I have two: fur hats and a long necklace with a pendant that hits my belt buckle.”

Who’s your celebrity fashion idol?

“David Beckham. His style is unique. He definitely makes a statement. Female: Mary-Kate Olsen. She stands out in a crowd.”

Who’s your favorite fashion designer?

“Alexander McQueen. One of his shows, he had a Little Red Riding Hood set on a model and she was walking a wolf. Classic.”

Worst hairstyle?

“In high school I dyed my hair blond and then tried to dye it blue and it turned out green. I wore it for one day down South Street before I cut it off.”

Describe your style:

“Sexy and funky.”

Who’s your favorite designer?

“Roberto Cavalli. Well, I don’t really have one. I like all of them.”

I love …

“Accessories. I own [the store] Stiletto, and I sell everything I love-boots, shoes, bags and belts. My favorite shoe designer is Giuseppe.”

What’s your winter must-have?

“Fur vests.”

Favorite color?

“Right now it’s green. I always wear black and caramel in the winter, then I throw in the fashion winter colors, which happen to be purple and green.”

Worst holiday clothing gift ever?

“It was from my ex-mother-in-law, and it was a multicolored fur. When I say multicolored I mean multicolored. It wasn’t even a hot ’70s-inspired chic pattern coat. I tell you, garbage.”
