On being an activist “As an eco-entrepreneur, I use design to help people form a deeper connection to the earth. Global Goods Partners [globalgoods-partners .org], of which I’m a trustee, provides artists in developing areas with a fair trade online store.”

On her low-key beauty regimen
“I’m not a slave to beauty. I just use Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap everywhere [$17; drugstores].”

On her fashion influences
“My father is Eurasian and casual, my mother French and stylish. But the person who most influenced my personal style was my grandmother, who favored chic but comfy Moroccan caftans and Peruvian-Inca-style jewelry.”

On her anti-aging secret

“I probably don’t deserve to look like I do. I don’t sleep enough, and I enjoy my vices, especially Casa Dragones Tequila. But I don’t worry about it. I go dancing as much as possible and hope my passion for life shows through.”

The dress is appropriately called perfection. I could only find it on rent the runway.

I am searching for the BCBG Max Azria dress in this picture and can't find it anyplace on the BCBG website. Can anyone help point me to the name of the dress?
