Meet the amazing Katrina Szish
Currently the Style Contributor for CBS News’ “The Early Show,” Katrina Szish grew up color coordinating her closet, presenting Barbie fashion shows to an elite audience of stuffed animals, and dreaming of being the next Barbara Walters. As a teenager, she convinced her parents to let her model in New York and Tokyo, but fearing brain atrophy, she left the catwalks for college and graduated from Harvard with honors in English Literature.
Yet, the siren songs of journalism continued to call. Katrina snagged an internship with CNN’s political investigation unit in Washington, DC and then another with “Style with Elsa Klensch” in New York City. She went on to hold senior roles at Vogue, GQ, UsWeekly and InStyle magazines, but has since immersed herself exclusively in broadcast and new media. In addition to her role at CBS News, she is a regular on “The View,” “Showbiz Tonight” and TBS.
Katrina has made more than 1200 television appearances – and counting! – as host, anchor and expert. She has interviewed everyone from Yohji Yamamoto and Oleg Cassini to Justin Timberlake and Denzel Washington, and she has shared the small screen with her childhood idol, Barbara Walters, on numerous occasions (not to mention Larry King and Bill O’Reilly).
She shares four fabulously decorated walls with her dashing husband Brant and their four-legged family (Italian Greyhounds Wilhelmina and Tallulah, tuxedo cat Tabitha and African Dwarf frog Floyd) in the heart of the best city in the world – The Big Apple.

Katrina on styling Boticca with Seaside Edge
“I love all things nautical – but, with a twist. This season, instead of the preppy navy and white palette, I am drawn to the more dramatic side of nautical. Dark metals, oceanic iconography, pieces with a sense of mystery.
Even my NYC apartment reflects this “nautical but nice” theme. We were inspired by our view of ships sailing down the Hudson River and wanted to create an urban nautical vibe. We fell in love with the look of authentic Razzle Dazzle camouflage used on naval ships during WW1 and WW2, and used that as our inspiration. Everything is graphic black and white interspersed with both nautical and exotic relics, for a result that the ultimate in seaside edge – both literally and figuratively.
