V MAGAZINE: What’s one thing you can’t live without? Why?

DELILAH PARILLO: My alone time. It’s so necessary for me! Oh, and I like my bed a lot too.

V: Can you tell us about your favorite fashion piece in your closet? Why?

DP: Hmmm this is difficult. I love collecting pieces. I have a really great Chanel ’95 pink suit set Claudia Schiffer wore in the campaign (with matching underwear!) Also anything from YSL Russian collection!

V: If you can describe your style in three words—what would they be?

DP: I think my style can be described as classic, glamorous, and maybe… American? I love an evening look but I also love simple shorts and a t-shirt. I also love to play up the season. This summer I had a straw bag I got from Tahiti I wore every day. I’ve been wearing lots of holiday dresses recently. And little black velvet shoes.

V: What’s on your wishlist this year?

DP: I wouldn’t mind some earrings from a certain Santa.

V: What’s been your lockdown routine?

DP: I haven’t been spending much time in Los Angeles which has been nice. In the warmer months, I was gardening and then going to the beach a lot. Of course, I was cooking every day which I got very sick of. I watched a lot of YouTube documentaries to keep from going crazy.

V: Can you give one pro-beauty tip everyone should know?

DP: A little bronzer always makes me feel sexier without looking like I’m wearing anything.

V: What are you hopeful for in 2021?

DP: I hope I can see all my friends and family like before. We can all sit on the couch together and not question it. And I hope that everyone that has had such hardship this year can find relief and new opportunity.

V: Do you have any 2021 goals or resolutions? What are they?

DP: I can’t wait to start working again. I think I became a little ungrateful about my day-to-day and I appreciate it so much more now. I want to get back out there with a new attitude.
