Conversations began as a column for the Huffington Post, where it initially featured fashion designers. Author Blue Carreon would ask his subjects to answer a fill-in-the-blanks type of questionnaire on topics that touch on many different aspects of our lives—from personal rituals to alternative careers to thoughts on Botox. Discover the fascinating truth on who has resisted and succumbed to Botox, and those who wouldn’t admit to using it by their twist of words or vague replies.

Carreon went on to ask a great mix of personalities to be part of the Conversations series. Among these include the style icons Inès de la Fressange and Olivia Chantecaille; fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg, Rachel Roy, and Michael Bastian; decorators Charlotte Moss, Vicente Wolf, and Mary McDonald; and artists James Nares and Polly Apfelbaum. Through sixty selected interviews, Conversations stretches over the fields of fashion, interior design, and art.

Delve into the fascinating lives of some of the world’s most creative minds and see just how many turns of phrase can be added to a single open-ended word like “Happiness…”

Read their answers and you’ll be surprised at how the subjects jump so quickly from clever to funny to philosophical—or all of the above—with each question.
