DESIGNED BY SARA BALDWIN
FOR NEW RAVENNA
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST BIG BREAK?
When Sara Baldwin decided she couldn’t resist
the temptation to turn me into a beautiful mosaic.
WHAT’S THE RUMOR MILL CHURNING OUT ABOUT

People feel my silky, satiny smooth surface and
insist I couldn’t possibly be natural. Walk on
glass?!? Yes, you can.
WHERE WAS THE LAST PLACE THE PAPARAZZI
It was a delicate détente between a starchitect
and hospitality developer in an ancient city on the

ASIDE FROM SUGAR AND SPICE, AND EVERYTHING
NICE, WHAT ELSE ARE YOU MADE OF?

WHO’S YOUR CURRENT BESTIE?
WHO ARE YOU WEARING RIGHT NOW?
Ralph Lauren Resort.
WHAT’S YOUR NEXT STARRING ROLE?
There is talk I will be the next Sports Illustrated

I will assuredly bring sunshine, happiness, and
memories of walks on the beach with pink plastic
pails and the discovery of bits of glass born of
waves and time.
WHAT’S THE WORST PART ABOUT FAME?
Actually it is not so bad. The more people step
on me, the more beautiful I become. If it gets a
bit overwhelming, I just head off to Virgin Gorda
to soak up the sun, ride a few waves, and build
