; with mom, GloriaWhat's your mom's strongest quality that you hope you inherited?
"Gosh, there are so many. In addition to being a great mom, my mom worked. She managed being a wonderful, caring, nurturing mom and also really rose to the top of her profession. That was always really inspiring to me. Her greatest quality is that she is universally loved."What's one piece of your mother's advice that you didn't believe when you were younger, but you do now?
"Treat people like you would like to be treated yourself."What's your mom's nickname for you? And yours for her?
"Bird, for Ali Bird. She was always just Mom, until I had children and now she's GG because my mom is terrific looking and quite youthful looking. And, I think we agreed early on when I had children that she wasn't really Grandma, so she became GG. And her name's Gloria, so it works."What's the one thing you haven't been able to steal from your mom's closet yet (but have been trying to!)?
"Two things: Shoes — because maddeningly we are not the same size. Not even close. And there is a Tom Ford-era Saint Laurent jacket I have wanted for a very long time that she will not hand over. It's emerald green. I still haven't been able to get it."
