How Well Do You Know Michael Kors?

Fashion Week Daily
How Well Do You Know Michael Kors?
By Sydney Sadick | June 22, 2017

Michael Kors was the latest star of Alina Chos MET Museum fashion series, The Atelier with Alina Cho. Last night, their conversation shed light on the American fashion designer’s epic career, from his start in 1981 to judging Project Runway and beyond. Around 20 minutes into the conversation, the event took a turn when a bevy of anti-fur protestors stormed the stage and protested Kors’ use of fur in his designs, forcing Kors and Cho to exit the stage. When the protestors were removed, they eventually returned. “There’s never a dull moment,” Cho said. “It’s fashion,” Kors added. With fashion, indeed, you can expect the unexpected! Like pros, the duo carried on, unveiling details about Kors’ evolution of design that you might not remember, but certainly shouldn’t forget. So how well do you know the design king? Find out!

Bette Midler On Her Life’s Dream:

Bette Midler On Her Life’s Dream: “I don’t really mean to sound pompous, but I always did think that this is what my career would turn out to be. And it could have turned out much worse, so I’m grateful for the way it’s gone But this is what I imagined for myself. When people ask me, `What’ll I do?’ I say, `Dream your dream. Put it in your head, and go step by step.’ That’s what I did and it happened well for me.” (New York Daily News, 1997)

Bette Midler On The First Wive’s Club:

Bette Midler On The First Wive’s Club: “There are a lot of angry women out there, and they saw themselves in this comedy. It struck a note of recognition in their lives, in a humorous way. But I think it was more than that. It was also the fact that we were three women whose careers people had been following for years, who had all hit kind of rough patches, but had now finally gotten themselves a decent vehicle. Three phoenixes rising from the ashes; I think people were rooting for us and that had something to do with it, too.” (New York Daily News, 1997) Read More

On Movies In General At Age 51:

On Movies In General At Age 51: “I don’t want to make a movie that doesn’t make people laugh. I’m not really interested (in drama) anymore. It’s too hard, a lot of the stories are very soap opera-esque. There’s a lot of schmaltz out there, sentiment that’s – sorry – bullshit. And I think that comedies are actually truer. They’re more helpful, more enlightening. It’s better to laugh than it is to cry, and at this stage of my life that’s what I want to do.” (New York Daily News, 1997) Read More

Bette Midler On That Old Feeling:

Bette Midler On That Old Feeling: “Leslie Dixon wrote this for me. We both wanted to do something big and broad, and I’m thrilled with it. I love those kinds of characters, the fight scenes are great, the love scenes are great, and there’s a little bit of music in it and all this romance. It seems like the right thing at the right time, and I’m really proud of it.” (New York Daily News, 1997)

What are the essentials in your refrigerator:
