When it comes to your personal style, what do you always pack in your suitcase?
I'm happiest when I'm casual in a pair of ripped jeans and an easy T-shirt. I also love jackets and because I'm from Scotland, I have a thousand of them. I'm like the Imelda Marcos of jackets. Even when I'm going to a warm climate, I'll bring them along and realize of course, I can't wear any of them. - Dec 4, 2012
