The March issue of AVENUE features our seriously selective list of the 39 Best Dressed Women in New York. Here is just one of the 39…keep coming back to see who else made the cut!


Delphine Krakoff: Designing Woman


Though interior designer Delphine Krakoff prefers to keep the spotlight on her high-profile husband, Reed Krakoff—president and executive creative director of Coach and his own self-titled line—she still shines bright. Before starting her firm, Pamplemousse (“grapefruit” in French), the Parisian-born-and-educated businesswoman worked for luxury design houses Vuitton, Dior, Coach and Polo Ralph Lauren. But Reed remains her primary fashion influence, and her best-dressed moment is, she says, hands down, “the first time my husband made me a dress.” For vintage, she swears by Scarlett on rue Clément Marot in Paris. “My absolute favorite!” she gushes. Her cautionary advice: “Don’t dress head-to-toe in the latest collection of a given designer to try and look like a page in a magazine.”
