Style Talk With Kristopher Dukes

Kristopher Dukes is the queen of fashion writing and one of Mimi's fabulous Glamour Girls. Readers worldwide love her style, grace and most of all edge. K knows fashion so it was quite a treat getting the dish on her kick-ass style.

Describe your style in one word.

What is your best-kept fashion secret?
I own a pair of New Balance sneakers for jogging, but they’re like models that don’t do cocaine—nobody believes they exist.

What are the five fashion essentials every woman should have in her closet?
A very little black dress, a mink coat, a snakeskin clutch, big, glammy Jackie O glasses, and “fuck you”—not “fuck me”—heels,

Who is your style icon?
Before there was Posh and her ridiculous glam, there was jazz baby Daisy from The Great Gatsby.

What is the biggest fashion mistake a woman can make?
Not styling to make herself happy. Or wearing chunky heels less than four-inches tall.

What is your favorite outfit?
I’ve a bit of a uniform: a neo-flapper frock, four-inch heels, a snakeskin bag, a “K” initial necklace, and smoky eyes.

What is your favorite way to accessorize?
Too-tall heels, more for a masculine love of height and less out of a femme vanity for my legs, and some sort of glammy dead animal. Maybe a fur muff, if it’s summer and I’m going to a vegan cafĂ©.

If you could give women a fashion tip to be fabulous what would it be?
Dress yourself so you want to have sex with yourself. Everyday.
