I love lascivious literature set in the eras that fascinate me. I love to imagine the glamorous clothes, marcel-waved hairstyles and lingerie of the past combined with explicit erotica. I am currently working on a perfume that captures the feels of these books.

No one is more quotable than Mae West, and this rare book is both hilarious and insightful. When I was living in Paris, my fellow glambassadors and I would sit around and drink violet scented champagne and read aloud from this book

Mae West: Broadcast Muse

Much is known and written about the film and stage careers of Mae West. But she also worked sporadically on national radio and television during her seventy-five-year career in show business. MAE WEST: Broadcast Muse is the first comprehensive look at her television and radio appearances with Rudy Vallee, Perry Como, and, most famously, with Edger Bergen and Charlie McCarthy on The Chase and Sanborn Hour in 1937. Her portrayal of Eve, opposite Don Ameche’s Adam, in the infamous “Garden of Eden” skit, and her provocative sparring with Bergen’s wooden companion, Charlie McCarthy, earned the actress condemnation and a ban from national radio that lasted more than a decade. It also all but ended her motion picture career. In the 1950s, she ventured into television with a surprise appearance on the 30th Annual Academy Awards presentation singing a duet with Rock Hudson, guest starring appearances on The Dean Martin Show and The Red Skelton Show, and an interview on the CBS-TV program, Person to Person, which was considered so risqué, the network cancelled the pre-recorded broadcast twenty-four hours before the show was scheduled to air. In the 1960s, she guest-starred on the popular sitcom, Mr. Ed, considered several television specials and a cartoon series, and did a rare sit-down interview with Dick Cavett. MAE WEST: Broadcast Muse includes the fascinating behind the scene stories of her work on these shows, and many rare photographs from the sets. The book also includes several proposed radio and television scripts that were written for Mae West, but never made it on the air, including a proposed appearance with Frank Sinatra on the Armed Forces radio show, Mail Call, in 1944, and fascinating interviews with the actress expressing her thoughts on television, censorship, sex, and being one of the most famous sex symbols in Hollywood history. “I never liked the idea of doing television because people could turn me off,” Mae West said to Joyce Haber in 1968. MAE WEST: Broadcast Muse explores with hilarious details all the famed actress’ radio and television ventures – those that made it on the air, and the many more that didn’t – and bring the actress back to life in a way her fans have never seen before.

La Parisienne, a rare and beautiful book that my friend the corsetiere Mr Pearl gave me. It's full of antique snapshots and portraits of women in the 1860s wearing the most divine and decadent clothes and hats.

The last song I chose is called “Striptease” by Juliette Greco and I’ve known Juliette Greco for awhile, but last year, when I walked in Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion show for the haute couture in Paris, he brought me this song, and said, I’d like you to perform to this song and, I fell in love with this song.

In For The Kill

Well, shift gears a little bit from the retro to some modern electronic music and this is a song called “In For the Kill” by La Roux. I was good friends with DJ AM who passed away almost two years ago. And, we used to hang around the same rave scene in L.A in 1990-91 and he was not a famous DJ back then at all. He was just a rave kid like me. But, he used to send me a lot of mixes and songs and we used to share old songs that we used to like back in the old days in L.A and he made me a mix with this song on it and I loved this version.

Rita Hayworth

When I was growing up, I couldn’t relate to supermodels, but I could relate to the created and, if you will, artificial brand of glamour. When I looked at pictures of someone like Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth the hair and the lipstick and the clothes were such a huge element of what created their appeal. I like to think that maybe I’m the same kind of role model.
