Why She Loves This Outfit: "This dress is timeless, elegant, and womanly. Trendy is just not me."
Her Merrymaking Style: "It's not about comfort. I'm still very European in that I love dressing up," says the Dutch-born former model, who wrote and directed her first film, Bringing Up Bobby, last year. "You'll never see me walking around in sweatpants. I love dresses and boots in winter."
