Michael Kors is as famous for his fragrances as he is for his clothing. And now he’s a celeb in his own right, thanks to his judging stint on Project Runway. (We’re headed to the Project Runway finale show at Lincoln Center shortly–analyzing who Michael takes the most notes on is part of our very scientific process of trying to determine who the real finalists are and who the decoys are. Anyway.) Tweets from last night’s FNO events show pics of him mobbed by fans who all wanted to hug him. We totally do, too.
Kors’ Signature fragrance, launched in 2001, is beloved by millions of women. Michael shot a new commercial for the fragrance starring Karmen Pedaru and lensed by Mario Testino. We have exclusive backstage footage of the shoot, which features Michael doing his creative thing, but also telling a bunch of silly stories. We’d love to follow him around for a day.
