    How a mother is able to balance life and family is beyond us, but thankfully, we have role models like Katherine Ross to tip those scales. A wife, mother, and — she may cringe at our on-the-fly sobriquet — an international fashion whisperer?

Tolstoy famously wrote, "Happy families are all alike," but, in this case, they're as singular as they come.
