We had a couple minutes to chat up with this style star, thought it was hard to take our eyes off her outfit! For now, she's working with designers already sold at Barneys—"Proenza, Altuzarra, Carven, of course," before bringing in more emerging labels. As for Fashion Week? "I'm nervous! I've done it before, and I was exhausted, but this year I'm doing it...I can't even keep track of how many shows I am going to."
Oh, and Ms. Brooks told us she's just learning Twitter...get on board and read her tweets @barneysny; Hers will be signed "AB."
