Who are your favorite fashion designers?
Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Gucci.

Who’s your favorite fashion icon?
I have a lot of admiration for Jennifer Lopez. She represents Puerto Ricans so well. She’s creative and playful. She has her own style yet she doesn’t fall into the rut of always looking the same.

Can you remember a favorite outfit from when you were a child?
A pink dress I wore for my kindergarten graduation. It was a fancy dress, sparkly and magical. I was so enamored of it I’d walk down to breakfast wearing it.

What was your first fashion moment?
A big moment was the 2016 Martin Fierro Awards – Argentina’s equivalent to the Emmy or Logie television award. I wore a beautiful black, beaded, off-the-shoulder dress. I felt like a 1940s siren.

And your worst fashion mistake?
I can think of so many – experiments with hairdos and color. But I believe in owning your Mistakes, they’re expressions of the moment. At the time I felt fabulous!

Is there something you would never wear?
Gold lamé hot pants, at least not publicly.

Is there a current fashion trend you like?
High-waisted pants and jeans, they’re so flattering to the female shape.

What do you wear to bed?
I sleep in the buff or, if it’s cold, silk pajamas.

What shoes do you wear the now?
A heel when I’m working – Stuart Weitzman, Valentino, Manolo, Jimmy Choo. I have a beautiful collection. When I’m not, I’m a flip-flop girl. I have Hawaiian in every color to go with my collection of bathing suits.

What do you wear on a typical working day?
I’m a feminine and flirty woman and it’s important that I remain myself. A lot of people in my profession chose frumpy fashion but that’s not me. I might wear a chic fitted dress that has a nice cleavage so there’s a hint of sexiness. I was brought up to connect with my femininity.

What’s your favorite off-duty, casual Sunday look?
We get together with family, so something pretty like an Erika Peña maxi-dress with a Tory Burch sandal.

Married at First Sight airs on Sunday at 7pm on Channel 9.
