Did you ever consider Eva's dress for Cameron, who occasionally wears white Dior?
No we didn’t. It's just different styles. I couldn't see anyone's dress on any other woman; each personality really came through in each look that night. That's the great thing about fashion - the next appearance will be totally opposite of that.
When a dress doesn't work for one client, do you keep trying it on other clients?
Sure that happens all the time. Yeah for sure, absolutely. But the same dress almost never works for two people in the same way. That's the irony of clothes.
Do designers ever tell you no, we won't change the style of this dress?
You know, I've never had it happen. At the end of the day, it really depends on how important it is to a designer for that to happen. But I also don't ever ask to change anything unless I think it's really going to happen. The last thing I want to do is make a change to a one-of-a-kind dress just on a whim. I don't do it for the sake of doing it, I don't do it to say, 'Oh, let’s just see what it looks like.' You do it when you think it's imminent and real.
How closely do you work with you clients' makeup and hair stylists in order to achieve an overall look?
I work very closely with most of them, but not all of them. I have stronger relationships with certain hair and makeup artists. I have certain ones who are very dear friends, and I'll meet with them beforehand to show them the fitting Polaroids and we'll talk about it. Because it is an overall look, it's a collaborative process that we all work on together.
