For some people, last night’s Obama fundraiser hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker was a success. But for others, it was a big ol’ mess.
“If Michael weren’t a designer, he could probably have his own stand-up show,” joked Fern Mallis last night about guest Michael Kors at the latest installment of the “Fashion Icons” series at the 92Y. And we doubt anyone in the audience would disagree (including Anna Wintour herself).
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Never thought you could own a piece of Michael Kors for less than $20? Well soon you can! The fashion brand is set for an initial public offering, which means its shares will finally be publicly traded — and it expects that when they hit the market, they’ll go for between $17 and $19.
Celebrities: they’re just like us! They attend Halloween parties in silly costumes! Let’s look at them!
Literally nothing changed! All four designers were selected to show at Fashion Week, and Viktor Luna, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson and Anya Ayoung-Chee had two days to pull their collections together.
It’s “Part One” of the finale, and we open with Heidi Klum explaining to the designers that they have five weeks and a budget of $9,000 to create a 10-look collection at home that they’ll bring back to NYC. I’m really interested to see what everyone comes up with, and I even like everybody who’s left! Well, except for Josh.
It’s the final challenge! Whoever makes it through this round gets to create a collection, and then the top three will show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
This week, the designers (once again) look to the ’70s for inspiration. Only this time, there’s missing money, tears from Tim Gunn, and Olivia Palermo.
This was the week of Emmy style, London runway shows, and tons of Lara Stone magazine covers. We attended Tony Bennett‘s 85th birthday party and investigated the Walmart cheer. We also thought a whole lot about the Missoni for Target mess.
Heidi Klum tells the designers in the studio that their hint for this week’s challenge is “image is everything.” They meet with Tim Gunn and Peter Butler, who is the consulting stylist for Garnier. The designers will be creating clothes for the Sheepdogs, an unsigned band that will be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. It’s the menswear challenge, y’all! This is when they separate the wheat from the chaff.
If sex sells, Michael Kors is about to make a lot of money. His new men’s underwear ads aren’t focused so much on putting on a fresh pair of boxer briefs as they are on getting a woman to take them off. (You’re going to have to click here to see just how she’s doing that.)
So, I was completely wrong about this week’s challenge in last week’s recap. The designers are still consulting with regular guys… about clothes for their wives and girlfriends.
Is there a designer more loveable than Michael Kors? We don’t think so. From his entree in to television as a young tot shilling Lucky Charms to his bon mots on Project Runway, he makes you feel like you could see him on the street and greet him with a hug. And now Kors is getting even more personal, sharing exclusively with us some behind-the-scenes footage from new ad campaign for his Signature Fragrance which, if you’re counting, turns ten this year!
When the designers go to meet Heidi Klum in the studio, she tells them that this time they will be working in two teams of five. Not again! Enough with the team challenges! We’re down to the top ten and I feel like I still don’t have a sense of what each designer’s aesthetic, because they only times they’ve worked alone they’ve been making clothes out of their pajamas, pet store merchandise, and children’s artwork! Whatever.
Fashion’s Night Out is tonight! There will be shopping! And food! And complimentary beverages of the alcoholic variety! But perhaps most importantly, there will be celebrities. Here’s what some of your favorite people will be doing at FNO.
There are a lot of things we love about Lauren Hutton‘s interview with Michael Kors in the September issue of Interview, but topping that list is a badass tale the model-slash-actress told about auditioning for a group of Mad Men-style ad execs in the 1960s.
On the last episode, Nina Garcia did her best to break everyone’s spirits. This week, the designers are instructed to meet Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn at a racetrack in Washington Heights, where they learn that there will be yet another team challenge. Team challenges are such a cop out! To determine the team captains, the designers will have to race each other around the track, because why not?
As a reminder for those of us who didn’t spend the past week trembling with anticipation, this is the episode in which the contestants designed for NINA GARCIA! The woman who perfected the moue! If only they knew what they were in for!
