Who are you rooting for to win Best Picture?
“‘Carol.’ It’s a captivating film from start to finish and has two of my favorite actresses — Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Their performances are powerful and beautiful.”

Your choice for Best Actress?
“Rooney Mara — modernity for a woman coming of age. She is definitely one to watch. I love her attitude and style.”

Which trend and Jimmy Choo shoe do you see being a top red carpet pick?
“The trend over the past few years is for pared-down, minimal silhouettes. I’m predicting that Tizzy — our sleek new ankle-tie stiletto — will be a favorite this year.”
