Christy Ferer’s company, Vidicom’s studios rocked with Isaac Mizrahi and Charlotte Ronson during DESIGNER DISH LIVE, the first live Skype chat with fashion designers broadcast on Ustream and PopSugar, http://www.ustream.tv/designerdishlive.
Skypers asked Charlotte and Isaac everything from advice on plastic surgery to layering techniques. The best was Isaac’s convo with a stymied Skper who he asked, “Have you had work?” (see the VIDEO for yourself below).
Isaac’s advice is always right on…he says, “legs are the last to go so always emphasize those gams when you can.” Some other “I” wisdoms include, “Tattoos are so 90′s.” He’s also a real believer of not looking like you tried hard to put yourself together. (I think it was Babe Paley who said that). And former New York Times fashion editor, Bernadine Morris, used to always quote her “always take one accessory off before you walk out of the house.” Isaac’s 2011 version, “DONT TRY TOO HARD…TOO MANY ACCESSOIRES…TOO MUCH MAKE-UP ADDS 10 YEARS.”
Christy Ferer loves how he told one Skyper that partially shaved heads are his fashion no-no because it makes people look ill. His must have accessory is “the kitten heel.” Of course, now that we have all bought those clunkers, the fashion pendulum is now swinging back to dainty and so fem-fem.
