Best Dressed: 1stdibs’ Mollie Ruprecht
We turn the tables on the 1stdibs editor — here wearing Tory’s Camille gown — in hopes of
finding out the secret behind her effortless style.
A combination of practicality and eccentricity. I was an art history major in college, and I’m drawn to pieces with an oddity, whether it’s texture, structure or print. Also, working at 1stdibs has been influential because I get to look at some of the best vintage fashion in the world, every day.
My style influences and icons…
I’m lucky to have a few extremely stylish women in my life — Lauren Santo Domingo, Jess Hart and Val Boster — they are my role models and the people I look to for advice.
My personal styling trick…
Buy pieces that transcend season and occasion. My goal is to build a foundation of quality staples that I can wear over and over again.
Cushnie et Ochs and Olympia Le-Tan
Best fashion advice ever received…
From my father: Be authentic — if something feels off, it probably is.
When I travel, I never leave home without…
Kemo Sabe hat, a book, Miu Miu cat-eye sunglasses, a cashmere scarf and Byredo Parfums Gypsy Water.
My go-to look for a night out…
This winter has been extremely harsh in New York, so I have found myself wearing my Balmain over-the-knee boots to add an extra layer, whether with jeans or a dress.
And on weekends I’m usually…
Chasing after my dog Clyfford and rewarding myself at Sant Ambroeus’ new location in Soho.
Look 15 from Christopher Kane — I love that pastel green skirt. I would pair it with Tory’s Pre-Fall 14 white crop top.
Spring destination I’m dreaming about…
St. Barth — my family has been going since 1975.
Exhibit I’m most looking forward to…
The Schorrs’ Basquiat drawing collection at Acquavella Galleries.
Emerging artist I’m keeping an eye on…
Not quite emerging, but I follow the work of the Bruce High Quality Foundation, Enoc Perez and Peter Doig pretty closely.
