She's glamorous, gorgeous and has a style that's all her own. Supermodel Elle Macpherson joins Nate to talk about her personal sense of style, decorating taste and more.
As a fashion icon, Elle's most apparent style sensibilities are showcased by the way she dresses. Nate says Elle has the "beachy" look mastered, combining clothes and accessories in a way that looks both effortless and chic. "For me what works is a sort of ease about it all and a casualness of spirit," Elle says. "I'm not particularly interested in being really anal about fashion. I think it's about style more than anything."
Fashion aside, Elle says she has a passion for architecture, furniture and art, and loves collecting pieces from the '30s, '40s and '50s. So does Elle live the same way that she dresses? "It's an eclectic mix," Elle says. "I guess it's a little bit like the way I dress—it's not so much hippy—but it is an eclectic mix. I like a sense of humor and yet I love really beautiful things as well."
In the same bold spirit, Elle says she's not afraid to use colors when decorating her home. She reveals that the walls of her New York City apartment dining room are an Hermès-box orange. The leather and wood 1940s dining chairs are orange, blue, yellow and turquoise, Elle says, while her restaurant style banquet is swathed in velvet. "It sounds horrendous," says Elle, "but it actually looks good!"
