Joan Rivers sat at life's table. She demanded the finest linens, china, and utensils. She always had fresh flowers. She was always served food that was seasoned perfectly. But when the food called for it, she ate with her hands. When she dropped her napkin, she wiped her face with the corner of the tablecloth. If she belched, she didn't apologize.
So many times we're told that being beautiful means being perfect. You have to have straight, white teeth, lustrous hair, no wrinkles or other imperfections on your face. But who is actually like that? No one!
All the while internet-stalking this amazing woman, I thought about what she taught us about style -- beyond "The Look." To me, she symbolizes sensuality over sexuality, casual elegance over self-conscious self-curation.
I was able to catch up with the alluring 27-year-old fashionista to see what it's like to be such a young designer and to work with a variety of Hollywood "It" girls.

Are stars just like us? It doesn't feel that way when gazing at some celebrity's multimillion-dollar estate through the window of a star-map tour bus.
Visit any factory-inspired condo development, or hip-and-happening home store, and you'll almost certainly find yourself wading through design history from the '20s, '50s, '60s and even the '70s. The reality is that much of what we consider 'cutting edge' actually predates our parents.
