Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are the dynamic duo behind the uber successful line Cushnie et Ochs--nominated for the prestigious Swarovski Award at yesterday's CFDA Awards. Cushnie and Ochs, who are gorgeous to boot, attended the awards with Karlie Kloss, whom they called their "tall statue of a date."
Over the weekend we bumped into the two at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and asked them to address the longstanding rumors that the two are actually a couple, among other things. Here's what they had to say:
You've had an amazing year--what is the peak of 2013 so far? Carly: Being nominated for the Swarovski Award at the CFDA.
What are your big summer plans? Michelle: Lots of quick trips. C: We are launching swim with resort. We gave a teaser during Spring 2013 and we're launching at resort.
So let's get down to it. Why do people think you guys are a lesbian couple? C: Yeah, we get that still. M: I don't know why. People are used to duos being in a couple situation--and we're not sisters, clearly. C: People ask if we're sisters as well which is unbelievable. [Laughs] M: On a good tan day!
Does that make you feel flattered? M: It's fine! There's a mystery to it!
And how do you respond? M: Oh, they don't ask, they just assume!
Are you seeing anyone now? M: I am. He's a lawyer. Fancy. He'd love this!
So Carly, you're still single. Would you ever go on a dating website like OK Cupid? C: No [but] I don't oppose it--I know lots of people who've met good people that way.
Where are good places to meet people? C: I have no idea! Everyone goes out somewhere. If you find out, let me know! Maybe a polo match?
