Yet, when it comes to Barnett's own style, you won't see the crisped suits and sensible grays her high-profile clients are known for, but, instead, an imaginative and out-of-this-world closet.

On your off day, where can we find you hanging out?
"What's an off day? If I'm in Miami, I'm usually at home or the movies. In NYC, I like to walk around and find new boutiques and restaurants. In L.A., you'll catch me poolside."

Why is Miami special to you?
"I lived in five different states before I was 6 years old. When I was 6, we moved to Miami and I basically grew up here. I truly believe that the 305 has found a way to marry the flavor of the caribbean with the hustle and bustle of big-city living."
