Long Island-born fashion superstar Michael Kors launched his women's collection in 1981. His signature then--and today--is a glamourous-yet-sporty sensibility, as evidenced by his latest runway offering. As Emily Blunt and Sienna Miller sat front-row, Kors sent glitzy dresses, crisp jackets and oversize mod jewelry down the runway. Chocolate brown and navy combinations were the order of the day.
Models-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls strutted down the runway for the iconic designer, who made history when First Lady Michelle Obama posted in one of his dresses for her official portrait. Another career-making decision? To appear as a judge on the first-ever fashion reality show, Emmy-winning Project Runway.
This season Kors broke the runway show mold by having live music; singer-songwriter Rufus Wainright accompanied the run of show.
Fashion insiders, always supportive of Kors, weighed in with positive reviews. "Michael never disappoints. The show overall was optimistic, the girls were pretty, there was color, there was embroidery. It's clothes for real women, it was such an optimistic show and there was great music," said Nina Garcia the Creative Director of Marie Claire magazine.
"I'm a very loyal friend of his. He dresses me for all the events and I love his shows, it's fun," chimed in model Alexandra Richards.
"What do I love about Michael? Oh my god I just met him for the first time and he is such a sweet person, such a wonderful person. He knows how to dress us," says Nina Agdal, model.
