JEW­ELRY DE­SIGNER VALÉRIE MES­SIKA SHARES A FEW OF HER FA­VORITE THINGS

InStyle (USA) - - Instant Style -

JOY RIDE I love mo­tor­cy­cling around Paris at night. My hus­band or my cousin drives so I can en­joy the view!

Per­fect Piece I pair my Saint Lau­rent jacket with both black-tie and ca­sual out­fits. It el­e­vates ev­ery­thing. Saint Lau­rent by An­thony Vac­carello blazer, $2,290; ysl.com.

STYLE ICON I’ve fol­lowed Kate Moss since I was very young. She al­ways looks time­less and cool.

MAN­I­CURE MUST The blend of eg­g­plant and black in this nail pol­ish feels el­e­gant and assertive. OPI Nail Lac­quer in Lin­coln Park After Dark, $11; opi.com.

Footwear Sta­ple Gian­vito Rossi shoes are sexy yet com­fort­able—and the sil­hou­ettes are sub­lime. Gian­vito Rossi boots, $1,445; net-a-porter.com.

GO-TO DENIM Hud­son jeans are well-cut, with nice washes. Hud­son Jeans jeans, $225; nord­strom.com.

Makeup Main­stay In­stead of showy lip­stick, I pre­fer glosses that en­hance my nat­u­ral lip color. Dior Lip Max­i­mizer in #001 Pink, $34; dior.com.

SPE­CIAL AD­DI­TIONS These ban­gles are from two lines in­spired by my daugh­ters, Ro­mane and Noa. When I wear them, my girls are with me. Mes­sika Paris bracelets, $9,790 (top) and $12,030; mes­sika.com.

Lat­est Launch My new Lucky Move col­lec­tion with col­ored stones is ex­cit­ing be­cause up un­til now I’ve worked only with white di­a­monds. Each stone rep­re­sents a mantra— for turquoise I chose “Be free.” Mes­sika Paris neck­lace, $4,760; mes­sika.com.

OFF-DUTY DESTI­NA­TION The Mal­dives is the best place for a break. I en­joy be­ing by the sea with no one else around.

PLAYLIST PICKS The French mu­sic scene is full of new tal­ents like Bon En­ten­deur, a group that mixes tracks from dif­fer­ent gen­res with in­ter­est­ing sound bites. I’m also into the Bel­gian pop singer Angèle.
