How to look seriously stylish - despite jet lag
By Nadira A. Hira, Fortune writer-reporter

(Fortune Magazine) -- Days on the road 100.

Favorite way to fly British Airways out of J.F.K. The service in first-class is amazing. You can have a three-course meal in the club lounge before you step on the plane.

Favorite hotel Four Seasons George V in Paris.

Best jet-lag remedy Go straight to work and ignore the jet lag. Works every time. I also get up early and run a few miles in the gym.

Working lunch Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's in London. I recommend the chilled melon soup and the Cornish lamb.

Biz outfit Anything Ralph Lauren - great fit. And a two- or three-piece suit made with Super 180's fabric travels best because it won't wrinkle.

Plane read "The Master Key System," by Charles F. Haanel.

Favorite luggage Louis Vuitton.

Days on the road 100.

Best way to fly A NetJet G5 with my clients. There's much less security hassle.

Packing tips Bring pieces that go from day to night. And pack your toiletries in Ziplocs or a toiletry bag. Marc uses one by Louis Vuitton. He can throw it over his shoulder and still be masculine.

Best jet-lag remedy A hot-rock massage - it gets my circulation going.

Biz lunch Nicole Farhi in New York. It's conveniently located in the store and near good shopping.

Outfit that screams serious stylist My Balenciaga black suit. It's structured enough that I can be taken seriously, and you know I mean fashion business.

Outfit that travels best My jersey knit Diane von Furstenberg dresses.

Face saver Dr. Sebagh Foaming Cleanser. It lets you wash your face without rinsing.
