All about Alison: "Kitchen Crashers" host Alison Victoria's loves include vanilla macarons from Ladurée (BELOW, IN THE CLASSIC NAPOLÉON BOX), and hot spot Scorpio's (RIGHT) in Mykonos, whose scene "exudes Grecian sexiness"; FAR RIGHT, her most recent "crash" at the Kohler Design Center in Chicago. "MY FAVORITE THING IS TO STROLL ALONG THE SEINE AND JUST GO SHOPPING FOR BOOKS." —ALISON VICTORIA "I never have to wear mascara." Sweating it out: "Seven days a week I wear athletic wear," says Alison, and Studio Lagree (1123 W. Armitage Ave.; has a mega reformer that is "[like] Pilates on crack. It com- pletely changed my body." Dinner and a show: Rose. Rabbit. Lie. inside the Cosmopolitan. "I go there every time I'm in Las Vegas. It's a throwback to the perfect supper club. The interiors are beautiful—candlelit and sexy. It offers live entertainment and the best people watching." Out-of-the-way eats: I Love Sushi, in a strip mall in Henderson, Nevada. "The best sushi I've ever had. It used to be a local hidden gem, but now everyone knows about it." Hotel of choice: Park Hyatt Paris- Vendôme. "I always stay there. I bring back their room spray or diffuser to my house in Chicago so it smells like Paris." Sugar fix: Vanilla bean macarons from Ladurée in Paris. "No one does it like they do." Downtime: "I collect books and each book has a story that I'm drawn to, whether it's the fabric or the contents. My favorite thing is to stroll along the Seine [in Paris] and just go shopping for books." Favorite getaway: Greece. "I'm 100 percent Greek and I try to go every summer. In Mykonos, I love the beauty, the energy, the restaurants, the shop- ping, the nightlife." Ultimate indulgence: Ruinart champagne. "[And] I love caviar." .
