"My dad is an amazing chef and he taught me to be experimental in the kitchen and not be afraid of spicy foods and try things. And he really got me into soul and R&B when I was little. Al Green was my first favorite artist. That was my dad's influence."

"My father made me laugh constantly. He taught me that having a sense of humor is the key to life and to appreciate humor. Being able to make people laugh is not only a gift, but it's an ability that not a lot of people have."

"My dad does everything better than anyone else's dad! I have the best dad in the world! He runs the farthest and he makes me feel more special than anyone else in the world. He's got three daughters and he's an athletic man who probably wanted sons, but he's very loving."

"He'd scare the living daylights out of me! He would dress up and hide in a broom closet after taking us to see Friday the 13th. Or on Halloween, he'd dress up as Jason to scare us. He did that better than any person ever!"

"My stepfather is very smart. He's a smart business man. He gives us space. He lets us speak our minds. He'll say something subtle and we get the message. I always like that. He's intellectual and quietly says his points and it's very well taken."

"My dad has always been my best friend and throughout my life he's been my mentor. Just as really a man that I'd really like to be one day. He's a great golfer, so hopefully he's passed a little bit of that on to me too."

"He tucked me in better than any dad could ever say they tucked anyone in. My dad's a guitarist and he used to play a song he'd make up for us to go to sleep. He takes the top of the list for that."

"My father was the most stylish dad there was and a big inspiration for my whole collection. He was incredibly stylish. He was very dandy. He designed all his own clothing and his own shoes with perfect detailing. He'd wear a dinner jacket and line it with Hermes scarves. He had a unique style, but it was elegant."

"What I loved about my dad is that he could take apart the engine of a car and put it back together and then go in and cook a dynamic dinner. He was a great chef and Renaissance man. He truly could paint the house, get the car running, and cook a fabulous meal. He really could do all of that."

"My dad taught me how to do everything. But I will say that he didn't let me drive. He didn't let me get my license until I could drive a stick shift, change the oil and change the tires."

"Sarcasm. I don't know if he knew he was teaching it to me, but I definitely got my sense of humor and style of humor from him. And there was the music thing too, but I think sarcasm really comes in handy."
