“Gosh, I really look up to Paulina Porizkova. She’s a dear friend and beautiful. Diane Von Furstenberg, really, because of her staying power, always staying classic. There are so many,” she said.

“There are ones from my youth that I’m always happy with, like Lauren Hutton and Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen,” Blair continued. “The ones who were the fun mysteries will always be adored. I love anyone with staying power, no matter their style.”

Blair is also a jury member at the festival for the 2024 Nora Ephron Award, created to “honor the spirit and vision of the legendary filmmaker and writer,” according to a press release.

In May 2022, Blair told PEOPLE that Scout has given her “a lot of independence” since she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2018.

“He’s with me all the time. If I get into a big (muscle) cramp or have trouble moving and need to recalibrate, he can come between my legs, help me get up and balance me,” said she. “It has given me a lot of independence.”
