The brand Michael Kors is now valued at $12.38 billion. But Kors himself, who serves as honorary chairman, chief creative officer and director, takes home astonishingly little.
We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a Michael Kors skirt that causes blackouts. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
To know Michael Kors is to know a very tanned man. Even during the February shows, his skin glows like a bright orange beacon backstage. On most, this would be, as they say, “not a good look,” but Kors has the sunny personality to back it up — plus, as he puts it, “Now that Valentino has retired…someone must wave the too tanned flag.” And wave it he does.

Marriage equality has been the issue on everyone’s lips this week, as the Supreme Court justices hashed out the implications of the Defense Of Marriage Act in oral arguments yesterday in Washington, DC. But while we will have to wait until June for the final rulings on the challenge to Proposition 8, in the meantime we’re taking a look back at the weddings, engagements, protests, arguments, and public displays of support we’ve seen in the fashion industry in the past few years.
Michael Kors is upping his sneaker game with a spring collection of kicks. The collection just launched online, and we’ve already picked some favorites.
Karolina Kurkova had the displeasure of eliminating the first contestant on The Face last night, and subsequently, pissing off fellow mentor and competitor Naomi Campbell. But Kurkova found that the least enjoyable part of being on a reality show is actually watching herself on TV.
Starting our morning with Michael Kors‘s fall 2013 show is always a good thing, but getting whiplash in the process was perhaps less so. You see, at Kors’ show this morning, about eight models, male and female, were walking the runway at any given time. It was probably due to the fact that the designer was showing a total of 63 looks, and while we would’ve definitely appreciated seeing the looks one by one, Anna Dello Russo was totally fine with it.
NYFW‘s celebrity faces turned out last night to kick off the week at the American Foundation for AIDS Research‘s annual fundraiser and gala.
Michael Kors has long championed the fight to end hunger. In October, he donated $5 million to NYC-based God’s Love We Deliver, and now he’s partnering with the World Food Programme.
The White House’s holiday theme this year is “Joy To All”, but we think Michael Kors must be feeling the seasonal cheer even more than the rest of us today, since Michelle Obama wore his glittery gold skirt suit this afternoon to hang with military families and show off all of the festive decorations.
Last night, Michael Kors‘ nearest and dearest came out to support him at the Golden Heart Gala at New York City’s Cunard Building. The evening’s red carpet was heavy on the simple sportswear, and guests’ looks fell squarely in to three camps: oranges, metallics, and blacks & blues — in other words, signature Kors, through and through.
It’s always nerve-wracking the week the designers get a challenge that makes them totally flounder, and it happens at least once a season thanks to the diabolical minds at Lifetime. This week was that challenge for the Season 10 designers, and it’s not hard to see why — they were put in charge of designing a new costume for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.
Oh, boy. This week the designers had to raise money in teams of three by selling T-shirts and various other tchotchkes they made in the workroom to buy their fabric at Mood. This went over about as well as you can imagine.
The contest between the female and male designers that has been brewing all season, whose opening shots were the dwindling number of female designers and the girls branding the remaining dudes the “Silk Chiffon(z)ies,” finally came to a head last night.
Every year, the Project Runway designers have a challenge where they have to make a garment for a normal-sized person. And every time, at least some of the designers moan and whine and cry about how difficult it is going to be to dress a real live human being because “they have to use more fabric” or “the patterns are going to be more difficult to cut” or that they just unabashedly hate fat people. This would be odious on its own, except I feel that the eliminations ought to be based on how well the designers treat their clients. Period. In fact, let the clients decide who to send home!
As much as we’re dreading this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, we were pretty amazed at its new PSA. It failed to hype us up for FNO, but it did make us giggle. The normal fashion crew of Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Paré, and Solange Knowles make appearances in the video. But wait, hold the phone — is that Tyson Chandler?? Yeah, he’s in it too! And why is Darren Criss singing a Madonna song?
