It's about the clothes, not the catch phrases.

Well I think the cool thing with Jerell and Jennifer's design was the textures. There's something very important for a designer: If you want to keep people intrigued and interested, you're going to have to put things together in an unexpected way that at first you kind of look at it and you might say, "Uh, really? Would you really wear that together?" But then when you look at it it's kind of like when you look at a woman whose not beautiful at first, but then you realize she's actually gorgeous when she starts laughing. So I loved the idea of how he mixed the fabrics and the prints. I loved the idea of something tailored on bottom with the sequins on top. I thought the whole mix of things was very interesting and it has a very Parisian couture quality to it. I think that if you saw Charlize Theron in this ... or Nicole Kidman ... or Cate Blanchett ... that kind of very sophisticated woman with their hair just scraped back with simple make-up and jewelry you'd think, "Wow."


Mr. Kors,

I am commenting because I am twelve years old, and an aspiring fashion designer. My dream is to get my degree in fashion design at Parson's New School of Design in New York. I am inspired by designers such as Marc Jacobs, for his textures, wacky designs and creativity, Diane Von Furstenburg for her patterns, shape, and beauty and of course you for your colors, crispness, and clean cuts. If you have any tips or schools you can recommend or even some inspiring words, that would be amazing to have and I would hold onto it for the rest of my fashion career. Thank you.

Sincerely, Chloé
