Dead Sea Beauty Products2 of 13
"One of my must-have beauty products is anything with minerals from the Dead Sea. Whenever I visit Israel, I spend time in the Dead Sea. It's wonderful to be able to have those same ingredients every day."

The Lorax By Dr. Seuss4 of 13
"When I was a child, one of my favorite books was The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. The Once-ler allows his greed to pollute and destroy the land for all the creatures. This story had a huge impact on me."
Leave-In Conditioner5 of 13
"I was 16 when I discovered conditioner, and I've used it ever since. In the morning when I wake up, I have troll hair. My hair has a mind of its own."

Her Dining Room Table7 of 13
"Our dining room table is extravagant! I knew what we wanted, and we made it happen. Fine old wood and aged patina, and so large that we had to extend the design of our dining room to accommodate it. We love it."
Her Bed8 of 13
"My most beloved home furnishing is our bed. It's a combination of masculine and feminine, and the design reminds me of one of my first classes with His Royal Highness Prince Edward, who tutored our team on the restoration of Windsor Castle. Our marriage bed is a result of those design lessons. And my husband and I have made beautiful memories in it."
Mid-Century Architecture9 of 13
"One of our design studios in Hawaii was purchased from John and Kelly Travolta. That property celebrates my love of mid-century architecture. We gutted it and started over with the great bones of the house. The color palette and grounds are a mix of tropical greens, Koa Woods, travertine stone and glass overlooking the ocean. It's sexy, modern and romantic."
Wedding Dress10 of 13
"My favorite item of clothing is a dress I love that I will never wear. It's a wedding gown named Royal Cambridge. Few people believe it, but this gown, which is amazingly similar to the royal wedding dress, was a best-seller for Kathy Ireland Weddings by 2be six months before the world saw Catherine's gown. We planned to preserve the dress, and maybe one of our daughters many, many years from now will consider it on her special day walking down the aisle. That would be a dream come true."

Furniture Banks12 of 13
"Please check out furniture banks in your community when it comes time to purchase a new item. Rather than letting your pieces add to the landfill mass, the furniture banks will pick up your furniture and bring them to someone in need. No child in this country should have to sleep on the floor."

Elizabeth Taylor13 of 13
"Elizabeth Taylor is one of my great mentors in fashion and so many areas of life. She taught me to be bold and to take risks. She gave me my start in fine jewelry. Her confidence in me made me a better designer and a better person."
