Fashion editor and celebrity stylist Liz Uy has become a celebrity in her own right over the last few years. Her recognizable look is a deft mix of outrageous proportions, fearless color, and an undeniable femininity. With over 1.5 million Instagram followers and counting, Uy has established herself as an legitimate presence in the fashion world and, rightly, in the front row. Before New York Fashion Week kicks into high gear, Uy took some time out of her busy schedule to talk power anthems, Phoebe Philo, and this season’s cocktail den of choice.
It’s NYFW. When’s your alarm going off?
6 or 7-ish.
Let’s talk breakfast.
Salmon and scramble with salt and pepper.
Uber, Lyft, or cab?
Heels or flats?
It depends on my mood! I prefer heels when I need that extra height and flats when I want to be comfy.
Piece of clothing you’re most excited to debut:
I have some pretty cute bags this season and I can’t wait to wear them!
What NYFW show are you most excited to see this season?
I always look forward to seeing Tibi and the finale show, Marc Jacobs.
Perfect place for a power lunch:
Where you grab coffee/tea for an afternoon pick-me-up:
TBH–anywhere near the show.
NYFW dream dinner, with whom and where?
Phoebe Philo talk about what’s next in La Mercerie.
Late-night cocktail spot:
Song that’ll have you on the dance floor:
I love a good girl power anthem and right now it’s definitely “God Is a Woman” by Ariana Grande.
Time in bed:
Call me Cinderella!
