Carolina Herrera Shares Her Style

The fashion designer speaks candidly about her family and what it was like to reinvent herself at age 40

You are constantly asked this question, but what does it mean to be stylish?

True style money can't buy. Style is something subtle that shows in small details. It's not the clothes you wear; it's the way you act, move, speak.

How do you define beauty?

Beauty is also something you project through your personality and the way you are. Sometimes you see a woman who's not very pretty, but she has so much personality that you say, "She's so pretty!" It's not just something visual, but a combination of thousands of things: of thoughts, of tastes, of what you like in books, in art. It's a collection of things.

What is your most important beauty secret?

Apart from basic skin care, staying active, routine and preventive health check-ups, I firmly believe that to look well it's essential to eat right. It's the key to beauty, health and looking young at any age. Good nutrition is reflected in the skin on your face and in your body.

Anything else?

It's important to have love in one's life, because it makes us more human and, incidentally, more beautiful. Those are tips that don't cost a thing, right?

How would you describe yourself?

I'm very curious; I like to do research and discover new things. What makes me the happiest is to see my family and friends happy. And what upsets me the most is to see someone I love suffer because of something he or she is going through, whether it's an illness or a situation. I like people who have a sense of humor, because without a sense of humor life is empty, and you never forget someone who makes you laugh. A sense of humor makes life easier!
