C here: Cutrone's first home in New York was a sixth-floor walkup on Avenue C in 1987, where the queen of the "Goth-vant-garde" says, laughing, "My late-night walks and prayers paved the way for generations of kids in Alphabet City."

Exceptionally chic: "I do have a solution for the blackness! I made one allotment, which is that I'm also allowed to wear all-white." In celeb style though, she loves Angelina's knack for black: "How could I not? She's part of the Goth club. I see the kids walking around with her and she's a total punk goddess."

Blazer trail: "As long as you have one cool piece on, you're good," says Cutrone, who just bought four of the same Donna Karan boyfriend blazer in black (and two in gray). "I love it so much and know it's a cut that doesn't come out very often. It's great with a pencil skirt and it's great with a legging and amazing with a jean."

"Every time something really good happens for me, I buy an Hermes bangle. I have a collection. It's one of the things I work really hard at growing. You can't lose with Hermes bracelets. And that's how I get my color."
