  • 1. What’s your go-to travel gear?

    leather Prada carry-on bag, if I’m feeling optimistic about my packing.

  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    Retro Superfuture Sunglasses with a light lens so I can wear them inside without looking obnoxious. Well, almost.

  • 3. Can’t travel without:

    two notebooks, at the very least.

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    Twenty pink feather boas and a full set of plastic cups featuring the Chippendales.

  • 5. Favorite thing to knick from the hotel:

    the dressing gowns, if I'm feeling naughty...which is quite often. Delano Las Vegas and the Oberoi Rajvilas have come top so far.
