As the media maven for one of Denver’s toniest landmarks, Dana Berry epitomizes fabulous. Here, she dishes on her ingredients for a life well-lived.

Reign Maker: Dana Lauren Berry

Dana’s favorite…

  1. Haunt: The Landmark is great because it’s 5 minutes away from my house and has lots of great shops and restaurants, plus a nice new movie theatre where you can even order wine. I love going to Hapa or Lime for dinner, then browsing shops like A-Line or HW Home before catching a movie. HW Home carries my favorite candles by Voluspa.
  2. Cosmetic: I always have a Lancôme Juicy Tubes lip gloss in my purse and even in my car. I also love fragrance—Gucci by Gucci, M by Mariah Carey, and Chanel Mademoiselle are some of my favorite scents to wear.
  3. Style Icon: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Love her! I own several books about the fabulous Jackie O.
  4. Seen: At charity events! I attend several each month for both work and for fun. I’m a member of the Denver Center Alliance, the fundraising arm for the Denver Center for Performing Arts; a committee member for the Excelsior Youth Center annual “Passport Party” gala; and involved with several other organizations. In Denver, we’re lucky to have lots of fun events to attend that give back to the community. I’m looking forward to the Do at the Zoo and the Denver Polo Classic!
  5. Food: Italian is my favorite! I’m Italian (my maiden name is Cantarano) and as a result, I could pretty much live off of pasta and bread. In Denver, my favorite Italian places are Gaetano’s and La Dolce Vita. I’m also a burger & fries kind of gal… I love to order the chicken burger at EDGE or the turkey burger at H Burger!
  6. Thing to wear: Dresses. So thrilled to call Gino Velardi a friend; he’s a fabulous Denver designer and I love wearing Gino’s dresses to events. Also love dresses by Nanette Lepore, Trina Turk, Lilly Pulitzer, Milly and ABS, to name a few!
  7. Accessory: Anything by Tory Burch! I own several pairs of her heels and flats, a fall bag that I love, and just bought the adorable rattan clutch.
  8. Indulgence: Manis & pedis! I love getting Shellac polish on my nails at The Spa at Four Seasons. It lasts (without a single chip) for two weeks!
