Kitchen inept? Not a problem if you make like Mary Alice Stephenson and A) fake your homecooked date dins B) befriend the likes of Padma Lakshmi...

You’re pals with Padma! Do you cook together?

She invited me once to help her be a judge on Bravo. Padma was so good about describing, in the most sensual way, every taste and spice in the meal—what was I gonna say? I was like, “Cheers!”

What’s your go-to dish?

I’m only good at cooking for my seven-year-old son. Believe it or not, he loves my lasagna. And I think you’re a good mom if you can cook a mean lasagna.

Did you ever cook to woo men?
Ha! I used to actually go buy dinner at Dean & DeLuca when I was busy styling shoots and being a fashionista. I’d put the meal in a skillet and fake like I was cooking it. So Sex and the City! That’s my secret, and no guy ever called me on it! And the dessert was always sooooo good, if you know what I mean. No one ever cared about the food.
