On strokes of luck “Day one at Harper’s Bazaar, I assisted at a photo shoot and fell for fashion. When I started at Seventeen, I was assigned to report on the shoe market, where I met my husband, Sam. Together we created Sam & Libby shoes.”

On her skin-care must-haves “I’m loyal to Murad Sheer Lustre Day Moisture SPF 15 [$68] and Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser [$35; both at].”

On how she stays in shape “I know some people get up at 6 am for yoga, but not me. I just run with my Jack Russell terrier.”

On her favorite footwear “I live in Kendra flats with bows on the toes, from my line Libby Edelman [$69;].”

On loving her age “I still feel young. It’s hard to believe I’m on the verge of 60—I certainly don’t feel it.”
