>> It's no secret that Gucci creative director Frida Giannini likes Rome, where she grew up, and music from the likes of Prince, Madonna, and Franz Ferdinand. Those are two of the twelve things she tells Elle Decor's February/March 2011 issue (out Feb. 8) she can't live without . . . but what about some of the less obvious things she listed? Among them: the seaside ("When I want to escape, I take my German shepherd, Gunner IV, and go to my beach house in Sabaudia, an hour from Rome"); hot dogs in Central Park ("I can eat four at a time, with lots of ketchup"); Agent Provocateur lingerie ("I wear a lot of black, which can look severe. Lingerie lets me play with my secret side"); pilates ("I do it early in the morning; I feel less guilty for the rest of the day"); and pasta with fresh tomatoes ("Don't forget the basil. So good and so healthy").
