Neville is my dog, and Charlie is his best friend, who’s also a dog. No matter how bad things get, the two of them always make me happy.—Marc Jacobs, designer It’s a toss-up between fluffy triple-layer Mrs. Greenberg’s coconut cake and a reciprocal crush. —Linda Fargo, senior vice president, Bergdorf Goodman My dog, Bird.—Wes Gordon, designer Hugs and kisses, peonies, and sunsets. How cliché, I know! —Hilary Rhoda, model Wearing pajamas, dark chocolate with sea salt, and cat GIFs.—Leah Chernikoff, editor, Elle.com Dinner with my grandkiddos. I love to have them get all dressed up and take them to a nice restaurant. You wouldn’t believe the change in their behavior when they put on a dress!—Betsey Johnson, designer The New York magazine crossword makes me happy, especially when I finish it! I’m also very happy reading National Geographic and tuning out all things fashion-related. I love a good recently unearthed mummy!—Lisa Salzer, designer Korean BBQ, Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby, diamond Rolexes, male models, Chanel, ’90s K-pop, and ginger beer.—Kyle Anderson, accessories director, Marie Claire Puppy kisses and an ice cold can of Coke.

Otherwise, a good classic rock ’n’ roll song, Christmas, my mother’s apple tart, and untalented people dancing.—Diana Moldovan, model Marathons of my two favorite shows: 19 Kids and Counting and Long Island Medium, veggie dogs from Westville, watching YouTube documentaries about royal jewels, trips to Marbella, and Muji socks in rainbow colors—Mickey Boardman, editorial director, Paper Happiness comes from within.
