Meet The Editors: The Lucky Team Shares Their Guilty Pleasures, Earliest Style Memories And More

What's your theme song? It's a toss-up between Chumbawamba's late-'90s classic "Tubthumping" (when I get knocked down, I do get up again!) and The Killers' "Smile Like You Mean It." Because the world could use more people who actually smile.

Who would you want to play you in the movie version of your life? Looks-wise, I get a lot of Camilla Belle comparisons—but to be honest, I'd rather have Kevin Spacey play me, because he's the best actor on this planet and he could totally rock that part. He'd just need a decent wig.

What is your earliest fashion memory? My love of fashion crystallized when I was in sixth grade and spent a few days home sick from school, parked on the sofa. I somehow stumbled across FashionTV, which was airing nonstop New York Fashion Week coverage—and I kid you not, I don't think I changed the channel (or slept, or ate, or bathed) for the next three days straight. To say I was hooked would be putting it lightly. So thank you, FashionTV, for helping me decide what to do with my life.

What's your ultimate guilty pleasure? YouTube beauty tutorials—I listen to them almost every night right before I go to sleep. Weirdly, I never actually try to recreate any of the looks (I'm not that adventurous with my makeup)—but in my opinion, hearing people talk about beauty products is literally the most soothing thing in the world. Especially if that person is Michelle Phan.

If you could come back as a famous dress, which one would it be? Claire Danes' white party dress from Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet (my all-time favorite movie)—because not only does it pair beautifully with ornamental angel wings, but I'd also get to be thisclose to Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, did somebody say swimming pool?!
