One of our favorite designers, Michael Kors, will accept the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Lifetime Achievement Award tonight, which is more than well deserved. We love him for his clothes, his zingy one-liners on Project Runway, and the fact that he has been outfitting women, including his very chic mother, for almost 30 years. We might not agree with his $1,000 sweatpants–we’d rather save up to 60% off on Michael Kors’ handbags today at Portero–but here’s why we continue to support the American designer turned TV star:
1. Figure flattering clothes: This man knows a woman’s body, and makes everyone from curvy Jennifer Lopez to rail thin Demi Moore look spectacular.
This MICHAEL Michael Kors Darted Shift Dress ($119.50) below will be perfect for your 9-5, or for cocktails with the girls.
2. The Carmen Kass nautical, beachy look: There’s something to be said about a designer who is loyal to one muse even when she is no longer the “it” model. Carmen Kass is featured in almost every Kors’ campaign and runway show, and aside from looking absolutely stunning, she nails that nautical look every season:
Even if you can’t afford a yacht, this MICHAEL Michael Kors Swimdress ($128) will make you look rich enough to own one. Wear this MICHAEL Michael Kors Boatneck Dress Cover-Up ($112) from brunch to the beach over your favorite bikini.
These MICHAEL Michael Kors “Kauai” Aviator Sunglasses ($90) are the perfect aviator that you will wear all summer long, while these Michael Michael Kors Women’s Amber Sandals ($135) have a great gold color that will go perfectly with your new tan.
