OUT with Tim Gunn

Okay, Tim Gunn just won the prize for all-time nicest celebrity. MAN, he’s nice. So elegant, stylish, dignified… and extremely REAL, which is to say, he’ll speak like a real person (read: pleasant and considerate) with everyone from the coffee-fetching production assistant to Heidi Klum.  We were interviewing him for an OUT magazine feature, and here he is talking about this year’s fashion’s night out and fashion week’s controversial move to Lincoln Center.  See the feature at OUT magazine, below:

OUT with Brad Goreski

Superfun – got to meet Brad Goreski, stylist and assistant to Rachel Zoe. I mean, former assistant. He left the show but they remain close – he was even there for the birth of her baby (now that’s intimate!)  Sounds like he’s been very busy since leaving the show – when he’s not attending fashion shows, he’s writing a book, “Born to be Brad: Life and Style Lessons from the Front Lines of Fashion,” working on his new tv show for Bravo called, “It’s a Brad Brad World,” which has “a Brad that you’re very familiar with and a Brad that you don’t really know,” and yes, a lot of outfits.

OUT with Nicolas Ripoll

Okay, I know I keep saying these guys are cute – but c’mon! It’s fashion week; I’m surrounded by astonishingly beautiful people! Nicolas Ripoll not the least of them. He is a young Argentinian model who is as sweet as he is good-looking. And unassuming – his mom and sister made him send his pictures to a modeling agency; he was working as a regular guy before that. Aw!

OUT with Nicola Formichetti

As a vegetarian, I found Lady Gaga’s famous meat dress fairly disturbing on several levels. But, I appreciate the originality and sheer technical feat of accomplishment of draping all that raw flesh on Gaga’s raw flesh, and making it work for several hours as a dress.  Bizarre, and amazing! Nicola Formichetti is Gaga’s stylist and he worked with Gaga designer Franc Fernandez on both the meat dress AND the consumer version – a meat shirt. And yes, it’s the vegan version; a pattern of photographed meat printed on soft, quality cotton. Cheaper, easier to wear, and far longer-lasting than the original.

OUT with Daisuke Obana N. Hoolywood

Japanese designer Daisuke Obana put together a really cool show for this season’s N Hoolywood line, reflecting his longtime fascination with old Hollywood. The screen backdrop looks like film credits and he uses movie soundtracks to dramatize his cinematic display of tightly designed men’s clothing.

OUT with Duckie Brown

Okay, Steven Cox and Daniel Silver may be amazing designers, but their real talent is being the cutest couple EVER. Seriously. They should have their own show. We shot this interview backstage after their Duckie Brown show at Fall Fashion Week NYC. I’m voting for a Duckie Brown reality show – for real!

OUT in bed with Alejandro Ingelmo

Alejandro Ingelmo is a Cuban-American shoe designer, and did I mention he’s supercute? Very charming too, and great taste in shoes.  During Fall Fashion Week in NYC he climbed in bed at Manhattan’s Jumeirah Essex House with OUT Magazine editors Grant Woolhead and Brent Coover to talk about this year’s lineup and I got it all on video….

OUT in BED with Ford Models

OUT in bed with Ford models

THIS was a fun day – OUT magazine got a room at the fancypants Jumeirah Essex House hotel on Central Park South, and invited some models and designers over to interview them – IN BED!

These two guys are Ford models, and they were absolutely hot, like beyond. Like, Photoshopped humans. The dark-haired one (Matthew Terry) was fresh off the farm, very new to the city and the modeling world, and you could just see he was oh so innocent… wonder how long it will take for that green to tarnish in the sophisticated world of modeling – hoooeey!!

You might recognize the other model, Bart (his last name has an impossible consonant-to-vowel ratio), from the 2xist show video I shot on opening night of Fashion Week. Both are up-and-coming male models, the next hot thing – you saw them here first! (well, almost first, but who’s counting…)

 

OUT at the 2xist show – high fashion = hot guys in underwear

This was my first taste of Fashion Week NYC 2011, and while the fashions were…er, minimalist, the show itself was SPECTACULAR – complete with showgirls, choreography and campy vignettes. It was a tad overwhelming, but there’s certainly worse ways to earn a living!
