What are you wearing?

I’m wearing a sparkly copper dress by C.D. Greene, a designer who’s made clothes for Kim Cattrall and Mary J. Blige.

How does this dress make you feel?

Fun! It’s shiny, festive, sexy—and something I thought was appropriate for the event. How do you stay in shape?

I jog, lift weights and do yoga.

What inspires your style?

No one person or thing inspires me; I pick what I like and what makes me feel good. I like my clothes to be sexy but comfortable, but also have something shiny, fringe-y or feathery that makes them stand out.

What are you wearing?

A navy-blue Oscar de la Renta dress, jewelry that was a gift from my husband and Dusicka Saks shoes.

How did you choose this dress?

Every year my best friend, Blair, who’s a stylist, and I make it a tradition to buy my dress for UnGala, and this year, he found the dress for me in Atlanta. I told him I wanted something glamorous and red-carpet looking, and he did it!

What kind of skincare products do you use?

I use the Neocutis line of skincare products. I just started using their Journee sunblock, and it’s made a huge difference in my skin.

How would you describe your style?

I spent 23 years in the radio business, but then retired to home-school two of my children, who are autistic, so I’m more casual now. When I dress up, I love Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Theory, but when I’m more casual, you’ll often see me in Seven jeans—they’re a signature piece for me.

What are you wearing?

A Mark Bouwer dress that was donated by L. Boutique to the Whole Night of Food and Fashion event for Girls Inc. I actually modeled the dress in the show, and my husband bought it for me in the auction.

What’s your favorite thing about the dress?

I love the beading and the details, but the back is really what did it for me—that’s how I knew it was the dress.

Where do you like to shop?

Locally, I love L. Boutique, Lotus and T. Georgiano’s for shoes.

What are you looking forward to wearing this winter?

Sweater coats, big knit sweaters, boots and layering pieces—we Floridians look forward to pulling out our winter wear. And I love classic, timeless pieces—once in a while I’ll throw in something trendy or funky, but I try to stick with the classics. —Megan McDonald
