“She look…

Do Not Want: Michael Kors Has No Idea How Much Things Should Cost

This busted, ’90s-inspired, rhinestone-covered, I-could-probably-get something-comparable-for-$9.99-at-Capezio’s body suit by Michael Kors is priced at $5,450. That is all. [Yoox]…

Well Played: Michelle Obama Goes For The Gold

With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a…

For The “Project Runway” Contestant In All Of Us: Kors Metaphors

Ever since we stopped watching “Project Runway” because it was moved to Lifetime and we couldn’t be bothered to figure out what channel that was (until “Liz & Dick” aired last night, that is), we’ve missed Michael Kors. Unlike, say, “X-Factor”‘s Britters Spears, who thinks that everything is “amazing,” Kors has a spot-on assessment or…

Heidi Klum Loses Luggage, Gains A Michael Kors

Oh, to be famed supermodel and “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum. When you and I lose our luggage, we get stuck going to Target and buying discount pairs of underwear. When Heidi loses her luggage — or in this particular case, has her luggage stolen at JFK — Michael Kors comes to the rescue, messengering…

Tim Gunn Talks Smack About Gretchen Jones Winning “Project Runway”

“Why did the villain win? Why? I could not believe it. Gretchen’s talented, and she’s not a horrible person. But was she the winner of the season? I don’t think so. The ‘Project Runway’ designers are like my kids. I love them all. I will say I love some more than others. And there’s some…

Dear Michael Kors, You Rock.

Dear Michael Kors,

When I go shopping, I tend to channel a raccoon—I’m instantly attracted to anything shiny, sparkly, or fishy.

This means that I have a closet full of sequined miniskirts and silver boleros and earrings shaped like salmon fillets. I’ll go to the store with every intention of purchasing simple black…

Betsey Johnson Brings The Noise To “Project Runway”

Fans of the ’90s, tulle, and “Sassy” magazine, get ready! Ebullient designer Betsey Johnson will be the guest judge on tonight’s episode of “Project Runway.” Tonight, the designers will be asked to make wearable items out of party store supplies (crepe paper bolero, anyone?).

It’s a tough challenge — apparently one designer end…

Rachel Zoe Dies For Fashion

Harper’s Bazaar has pulled a funny! You know when Rachel Zoe says, “I die,” over a particularly fabulous item of fashion? Well, the magazine took her at her word in this pretty amusing editorial starring Ms. Zoe getting slayed by all her favorite designers — literally. Here, Marc Jacobs gives the celebrity stylist a rather…

Sparkle In The Summertime

Vests may seem like cold-weather clothing, but they’re actually great for when you want to layer during the summer, since they’re, you know, sleeveless. This vest by Michael Kors works with both casual and nice outfits, like an easy jean and tank combo or your simple black dress. Sparkles are so versatile that the possibilitie…

The Guy With The Craziest Hair Always Wins “Project Runway”

Season seven of “Project Runway” dealt its final “auf wiedersehen” this week. Seth Aaron out-styled Mila and Emilio, further proving my theory that the guy with the most alternative hair on the show has the best chances of winning. Think about it—Seth Aaron’s faux-hawk-punk-rock-side-burn hair thing looks strangely similar to season three winner Jeffrey’s do.

4 Boots In 1 Actually Kind Of A Good Idea

Know those convertible pants that become shorts just by unzipping the bottoms? In theory: good idea. In reality: ugly as hell. So it’s pretty amazing that Michael Kors has managed to take the same principle, stick it on a boot, and make it moderately stylish. Behold his new “Franny” style, which can be zipped u…

The Queen Of Queens? Anna To Make Awkward Store Appearance

So, we are already cringing at thoughts of Vogue editor and fashion royal Anna Wintour addressing the masses at Macy’s in the New York borough of Queens, of all places. The collision of these two worlds is guaranteed to be the stuff good reality shows are made of. (Too bad they’re no longer filming…

Quote Of The Day: Michael Kors Got Outed By His Mom—At Age 12

“My mom started asking when I was 12, ‘Is there anything you want to tell me?’ I then told her I was bisexual. And she said, ‘You’re so trendy, but you are not bisexual, you are gay.’ She cut to the chase. What can I say?Michael Kors, “Project Runway” judge and fashion designer. [Vanity Fair]…
