I’ve been an admirer of Fiorella’s work, reading every single article, since her days posting on Vogue’s beauty blog, along with fellow writers Celia Ellenberg and Kari Molvar.

I follow her on Instagram and am inspired by her, Fiorella is a talented writer, making all her work enjoyable and informative at the same time. She covers all topics and ranges from beauty, food and travel.

In-Between her articles, she found time to answer a few questions.

Nancy Cunard by Man Ray

Fashion Icon: Diane Keaton, Nancy Cunard, and Bea Arthur as Dorothy Zbornak. Love women who accessorize copiously, are masters of layering, and really dress without being guided by anything other then their own whims.

Elsa Peretti Bone Cuff for Tiffany’s

Wish List: Elsa Peretti’s passing was a reminder of how much I would love to own one of her bone cuffs.

Last item purchased before the pandemic: A stark white Norma Kamali suspender dress with giant pockets.

Via Carota via Google

Favorite Restaurant: Via Carota, 51 Grove Street, New York City.


Current Beauty Routine: Do you mean skincare? It changes a lot but right now a rose mist by Lake & Skye, de Mamiel First Fix Serum, rotating between new cleansers by Josh Rosebrook and Tata Harper, Shani Darden Retinol Reform (at night), Fortuna Replenishing Balm or Weleda Skin Food as moisturizer, sometimes Augustinus Bader Face Oil on top. If I remember to use eye cream, it’s been Kate Somerville’s Retinol and Vitamin C. I almost forgot Sunscreen, it’s either Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting or Elta MD Tinted.

Favorite Red Lipstick of the moment: I have many favorites but a recent one I love is Kosas Thrillest.

If you could live in any type of clothing, what would it be: Turtlenecks.
