Tory Burch has a celebrity crush on Emily Blunt.
The American designer's self-titled label is known for its chic and preppy but fun aesthetic.
Tory is a celebrity in her own right, but still gets excited to see stars wearing her clothes.
"I feel really lucky as we've had so many great people: Carey Mulligan, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Emily Blunt - I love Emily Blunt," Tory told the latest edition of British magazine InStyle.
Since opening her first store in 2004, Tory now has more than 80 boutiques across the globe. Despite the international success of her label, she never envisaged a fashion career during her younger years.
"I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania," she said. "Most days I'd be outside with my three brothers and I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about fashion."
Nonetheless, Tory was surrounded by glamour. She says her parents were "very stylish".
"I remember looking at them when they'd go out at night; they were incredibly glamorous," she said.
Tory, who has no formal design or business training, also spearheads the Tory Burch Foundation, which supports female entrepreneurs. In another life, she says she fancies taking up another creative pursuit.
"I'd love to be an author," she said, name-checking Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude as her favourite book. "I'm always amazed by people who write beautifully. I think it's just extraordinary."© Cover Media
