Take a page from Nina Garcia on having it all. She’s Creative Director of Marie Claire, judge of Project Runway (eleven seasons strong), and above all, Mom to sons Lucas, 6, and Alex, 2. “Time is the biggest luxury,” she says. “And time with my kids is what I cherish most.” In an homage to Mother’s Day, we sit down with Garcia to talk—among other things—favorite motherhood moments, day-to-night dressing, TV obsessions and what she’s coveting right now.

CBS - “HARRY WINSTON, JEWELER TO THE STARS”
Nina Garcia, creative director of Marie Claire magazine, and a judge on the hit reality show “Project Runway,” calls Harry Winston “the jeweler of jewels.” “Really, it’s another world. To enter into the Harry Winston world is to be in a dream,” she told Altschul. “It’s the stuff of legends.” And so for every Oscar night, Harry Winston loans out some of its finest pieces to nominees, presenters and Hollywood legends. Spokeswoman Meredith Keller and her team help celebrities pick out that perfect item, like a bracelet with 400 diamonds, similar to one worn by Halle Berry to the Golden Globes. According to Keller, it’s worth “a little over half a million dollars.” Big-ticket items like the bracelet and the $9.5 million diamond and tourmaline necklace come with their own security detail.
