It’s nearly June, which means the fashion world is gearing up for its own glamorous celebration of exceptional achievements, the CFDA Awards, which will take place on June 6. To generate some buzz about the ceremony, the council created a funny little Twitter account for Trova, the CFDA statue. We scored an exclusive interview with the sparklingly hilarious lady, who dished about 2011 host Anderson Cooper, ex-boyfs, and how to get that flawless golden sheen.
Fashionista: We’ve heard you’ve been quite the girl about town lately?
Trova: Well I’ve got designers to support. Had to see Oscar’s new resort collection, of course, for my summer in…who knows where I’ll be? And I had to see the McQueen exhibit at the Met.
How are you handling the pressure of working with Anderson (Cooper)?
Getting tips from Kelly (Ripa – Anderson filled in for Regis on Live with Regis and Kelly). I liked the way Anderson worked with the Times Square New Year’s Eve ball, though I’m more petite and subtle. And I’m friends with Emmy, who went home with Anderson in 2006 (For AC 360).
How will you prepare for the CFDA Fashion Awards?
I’ll leave my suite at the W Hotel, get dressed in the Barneys windows a la Daphne, Lexus picking me up, etc.
Some gossip: Who are your best friends? Exes?
Oscar, Tony, Heisman…don’t want to reveal too much.
How do you maintain your shiny, magnetic personality?
In addition to a daily rubdown, I like to dabble in Swarovski crystals, of course.
