Retail Therapy: Veronica Webb

Veronica Webb has been captured on the pages of almost every major fashion magazine, including Elle and Vogue. She has walked the runway for major companies such as Chanel and Victoria's Secret and was the first African-American fashion model to have a contract with a major cosmetics company when she signed with Revlon.

Veronica most recently co-hosted Bravo's "Tim Gunn's Guide" To Style where she helped several fashion challenged women undertake a wardrobe makeover. Now she is unveiling her shopping secrets on Madison Avenue Spy. We love a women who hangs with Azzedine Alaia but isn't too shy to shop at Zara.

What's your most prized "deal?”
A classic piece like a trench, cardigan, shift dress, pea coat in a luxury fabric and a couture cut and a great price!

Biggest regret that you didn't purchase?
I have a no regrets policy in fashion and in life. Make a decision and own it.

This season you are looking for...
Quality and great color.

What's your number one shopping tip?
Going to visit my great friend Azzedine Alaia in Paris once a year.

What's your biggest weakness?
Handbags. Secret sources for a fix? Zara and Isabella Fiore.

Is there an item for which a shopper should never mind paying full price?
These days? Only something you need in an emergency!

Come on, I love fashion and all, but I'm not expecting deep or complex questions or answers from a Fashion tips\opinion interview.

If you asked me what my best fashion find was, and you expect a mind stimulating response I suggest you pick up a book.
