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

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you take along? Chapstick, tweezers, sunscreen—I'm going practical.

Who would you want to play you in the movie version of your life? I think Rebecca Hall is pretty excellent—she'd just need to downplay her agility a bit. I have a feeling I trip over more things in a day than she has…ever.

If you could raid one of your fellow Lucky editors' closets, whose would you pick and why? Anne Keane's. She's so good at understanding everyone's personal style and brings pieces from her own closet in for editors to try for different shoots! There's a skirt of hers that I tried on last week that I'm now obsessed with finding for myself.

Finish this sentence: "I can never own enough _____." Red lipstick. I'll find one that I'm convinced is the perfect shade, and then I try a different brand that has a slightly different undertone or consistency and I change my mind. I have five different red lipsticks on my bathroom counter and I tend to go for a different one every day, depending on what I'm wearing.

What is your earliest fashion memory? My mom had a simple boatneck maroon dress with a row of button details on the shoulders. It fit her perfectly and she'd wear it for special occasions—I remember thinking she looked like a movie star in it. I couldn't wait until I was big enough to try it on.
