Weekend Warrior: Lubov Azria


Lubov Azria – wife of Max, mother of Chloé, 18, Anais, 16 and Agnes, 14, and chief creative officer of BCBGMAXAZRIA and Hervé Leger by Max Azria – shares her idea of a perfect weekend. Lubov’s favorite thing to savor? Time. “It’s so precious yet you can never get it back,” says the blond beauty, who is also stepmother to Max’s three adult children. “I indulge in the time I have with my family, I bathe in every delicious moment I have with Max, and I soak in every moment I am working. Love the life you live, and live the life you love, each and every day.” As for her weekend…

I wake up, spend some quality time with my iPad in bed, have breakfast with my kids – fresh coffee with toast, maybe some scrambled egg whites on the side – and enjoy the day relaxing at home with my family. Why would I want to be anywhere else in the world but here? I snack on almonds, goji berry shakes, and my sinfully dark chocolate throughout the day. And I can’t live without Fiji water – so good! I love discovering new restaurants, supporting the arts and, of course, my all-time favorite sport, SHOPPING!

My ideal evening would be sharing my favorite meal of the day with people I love. This past Friday, Max and I opened our home to all of our closest blogger friends (who I absolutely adore) during our Celebrity Shabbat dinner and continued the celebration of Max and my 20th wedding anniversary. In true BCBG “Desk to Dinner” style, I wore one of my favorite runway pre-fall looks – the white Elicia dress with black lace and leather belt – that I wore to work that day.

Sunday is funday. I never stop working, so taking time for myself is important to my wellbeing and happiness. On Sundays, I love going to the Fairfax Flea Market close to home.
