I had lunch with Michael Kors and his mother Joan a couple of years ago and they were two of the nicest and funniest people I'd ever had the pleasure of meeting so you can imagine how it pains me everytime Kelly or I rag on his bags. We've always loved his clothes, however, and I look forward to it each season. When I viewed the pieces he sent down the runway this morning, I immediately recognized his muse for Fall 2007 as none other than Joan, his mother. If you've ever met her, you too would spot the big black sunglasses, diva style wrapped hair, coats trimmed with fur, and ladylike bags as pure Joan. This fall, he continues his love affair with fluid lines and sensual dresses, but the ingenue ballerina looks from Spring have been replaced by seductive femme fatales, whom we all know have more fun. When I asked Michael the secret to timeless style he said to find a look that is most flattering, and to stick with it regardless of trend. For him, it is his signature aviator glasses and white jeans, a look he has embraced for decades. For me, it is my collection of figure hugging dresses and I can't wait to add this gray wrapped jersey dress to my collection.
