What is your all-time favorite food?

I love Lucky Charms cereal, especially on French toast. It’s so good. I’m obsessed with cereal.

Is there a chef you would most want to spend time with in the kitchen?

There are two chefs who I actually have been in the kitchen with, and that is Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. They are so much fun to cook with together.

What are the four staples that are always in your kitchen? 

Of course, all of my crystallized spatulas. And I love vanilla honey, which I like putting on almost everything. Truffles, I love. And Lucky Charms.

What is an impulse food buy or kitchen utensil you can never pass up?

I just love things that are really cute that make me smile, like a Judith Leiber bag with crystals and a rainbow, or one with angel wings. I know it’s random to have handbags or clutches on the kitchen counter, but I like to do things my way. It puts me in a good mood.

It’s why we love you. Speaking of things that bring you happiness, what’s your favorite comfort food? 

Foods that are probably not healthy, like French toast with Lucky Charms. Pizza. Macaroni and cheese. Comfort food to me is, like, kid food, and I’m such a kid at heart. So I really like that.

What did you get really good at cooking during the pandemic? What’s a quintessential Paris dish?

There were so many things that I learned how to cook. The pandemic was the only time in my career that I’ve been at home so long because I was used to traveling 250 days out of the year. I’ve had so much time at home with my fiancé, and I’ve loved to impress him with my cooking skills. One thing I learned on the cooking show was to cook a frittata, which I did with Kim [Kardashian]. My fiancé loves it, so I make that for him almost every single weekend for brunch.

Is there a certain ingredient that makes your frittata extra special?

I always add my own ingredients. You’re supposed to put cream, but I actually found this amazing vanilla almond milk. It makes the frittata taste so sweet, like that salty and sweet together. It’s so delicious. I would recommend that to anyone who’s making a frittata. It’s a new way.

Do you have a favorite midday snack?

I usually like to have cereal. I have all different types, so either Lucky Charms, Rice Krispies, Captain Crunch, or Cocoa Puffs. I’m not the healthiest eater.

You’re going to need a Lucky Charms campaign.

Yeah, I know. If they are listening, hi.

Do you clean up after you cook, or do you have someone else do that for you?

A little bit of both. Sometimes when it’s just very hectic, I’ll have someone help me. But when I was cooking with Kim Kardashian, she taught me to clean as you go. So I’m going to try to use that tip more often.

It’s true. It definitely helps. What do appreciate about cooking and being in the kitchen?

I just love it. I love food. I’ve always been a foodie. And I love being creative; it’s like an art for me. I don’t really like following recipes or reading rules. I just feel it and put things in, and it ends up tasting even better than the original. How I have fun with fashion, I like having fun with food.

Do you listen to any music while you’re cooking?

Yes. I listen to my songs. I love “Stars Are Blind.” That’s a really good one to cook to. And anything by Britney Spears.

With fall approaching, is there a dish that you look most forward to eating or making?

I love stuffing. On the show I learned how to make a Thanksgiving turkey. I had no idea it was so hard to make and so gross, pulling the things out of it. It was traumatizing. But now I have a bigger appreciation for all of the moms and dads out there who make the Thanksgiving turkey. A lot of work goes into it.
