6 a.m.: I joke that I don’t see my family during awards season, but clearly I see them long enough to take this pic of them sleeping.


I couldn’t tell you what day of the week it is but my office is getting full. We have 6 people going to the Globes and parties and all our fittings need to happen this week.


4 p.m.: Olivia Wilde’s first fitting. She is presenting this year. We love the Globes. It was our very red carpet years ago so we are always a little bit sentimental.


8 a.m.: I am f—ing tired


12:20 p.m.: America Ferrara’s first fitting. I knew as soon as I saw this gorgeous Jenny Packham gown it would be the one. And, it was the only one we tried one. Moral of the story, it doesn’t always or ever have to be hard.


1 p.m.: I’m old school and I like making lists on paper. Once we have everyone’s look including all accessories, my team and I make packing lists for everyone. I also like to get a parking ticket every Globes weekend.


4 p.m.: Second Olivia fitting. I like to always keep the event and reason behind all the clothing selects. This custom Michael Kors collection is perfect for the event and the parties.


11 a.m.: I am nothing without my wonderful team – Erica and Siena. We are off to dress 6 clients – all before 3 p.m.


1:30 p.m.: Check out the sick vintage Bulgari choker on Olivia.


3: 30 p.m.: The gorgeous Courtney Eaton is in Mad Max: Fury Road and tonight we went Frida Khalo in this incredible Alessandra Rich dress and sick Chanel jewelry. Here she is with the wonderful glam team of Christian Wood and Georgie Eisdel.


4 p.m.: Behind the scenes with Michelle in her Prabal Gurung gown – the color is insane especially with the lining. Clearly I have a crazy selfie face.


4:45 p.m.: Last but certainly, not least: The coolest, Carrie Brownstein in Valentino. BOOM! She told me to bring tennis shoes and I told her to suck it.
