A woman can never have too many pants— and, no, I’m not talking about jeans. Denim is a tried-and-true wardrobe staple, but they don’t work for all occasions.

Peter WhiteGetty Images Everyone remembers their first encounter with a Coach bag—it was, most likely, borrowed from their mom.

Lucky for
Donatella Versace at her home in Milan. Pier Nicola Bruno Shortly before I interview Donatella Versace, I ask my colorist to bump up my already-straining-credulity blond by a shade.

Then, in 1980, Turini’s sigh of relief came in
Wes Anderson is probably jealous of Emily Adams Bode. She constructs clothes from vintage merit badges and sports pennants. She’s got a whisper network of antique dealers from Paris to Atlanta. She collects tiny pieces of 1960s furniture. She can discern between the different tribes of High School Art Girl.™ (“I was never a jaded
