The Huffington Post senior editor reveals her favorite designers and fashion essentials.

Journalist Willow Bay can pull off the red carpet better than many starlets in town. No stranger to the world of fashion—Bay is a former Ford model—she often opts for classic, feminine styles while out on the town. The LA-based senior editor of The Huffington Post and special correspondent for Bloomberg Television is married to Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger. Together, they have two sons Max and Will.

Talking to THR, Bay answers some fashion questions and names her favorite designers:
THR: Who have you been wearing recently?
WB: Juan Carlos Obando.  His clothes are exquisitely made. And he is gracious and charming. I never pass up a visit to his atelier. I wore his dresses to the Oscars and the Globes this year. Michael Kors for basics. Prada dresses- they get recycled and re-worn for years. And Monique Lhuillier. I love that her clothes are all made here in LA. I wore her white one-shoulder dress with gold beading to the White House State dinner, and yes it was a repeat. I wore it for the first time to last year’s Oscars.
THR: Where have you been shopping recently?
WB: Perrin Paris. I have gotten hooked on their sleek clutches. The Martha clutch is the name, it has slots for two phones. I gave one to Arianna [Huffington] too.
THR: What's in your purse?
WB: Too much stuff!
THR: What are your travel must-haves?
WB: Pashminas to wrap up in on the plane. I used to travel with one for my boys too when they were little. Even though they are big kids now they still turn to me for a shawl on the overnight flights.
