Closet Stalker Series

Brenda Jones

BY // 01.24.15

Former model and mommy of three Brenda Jones has great style, a bangin’ bod and cheekbones to spare. But as anyone who knows her will attest, her beauty truly comes from within. We crept into her closet (and boudoir!) to see who’s hanging there and what keeps her looking so fine. Here are the answers to the quiz:

BRENDA’S STYLE: Classic, relaxed, a touch sexy, depending on my mood.

FAVE DESIGNERS: The Row, Roland Mouret, Nina Ricci, Chloé, Saint Laurent, James Perse, J Brand and Frame Denim for every day.

ARE YOU AN ACCESSORY PERSON? Love one or two timeless pieces from Cartier or Hermès.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE PIECE? My Harry Winston wedding band. [Cue violin — are you reading, Brad?]

WHAT WILL YOU SPLURGE ON? Shoes and handbags.

WHERE DO YOU TRY TO SAVE? I would rather have one special item than several ordinary things.

CAN YOUR HUSBAND NAME YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNER? He’s always shopped for me as often as I shop for myself.

AND WHERE DO [THE TWO OF] YOU SHOP? Sloan/Hall, Neiman Marcus, Tootsies —but mostly after the girls are asleep on net-a-porter.com.

One of Brenda’s old standbys is Pedro Garcia.



MORNING RITUAL: Thank goodness for Laura Mercier’s Undercover Pot! I’ll also apply a bit of Stila Convertible Color, curl my lashes and put a dab of Aquaphor on my lips.

SUPPORT STAFF: Dr. Annette Harris (my dermatologist), Rita Contreras at Roots The Salon for hair. She made house calls while I was on bed rest during my pregnancies … An angel! And Yen at Isle Pedi Spa on Voss for nails.

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: A hot bath each night. A luxury these days, though!

MOST RECENT BEAUTY DISCOVERY? By Terry Cellularose Blush Glace gives the prettiest glow.

SIGNATURE SCENT/FRAGRANCE: Usually the baby’s lotion as I’m running out the door!

ANYTHING ELSE THAT KEEPS YOU LOOKING GORGEOUS? My sweet husband tells me I look lovely, even on the days I don’t.
