French Vogue's lovely EIC Emmanuelle Alt chatted with Chic for a few minutes after the Marc Jacobs show. Just because we're still obsessed...

Where do you eat when you're in NYC?
I'm very boring in my taste. I've been going to the same restaurants forever in the city. I was at Cipriani uptown today for lunch. I had an artichoke salad and some spaghetti with tomato sauce. I'm really basic when it comes to food. 
Where do you shop?
In between shows I had time to go to Barneys and pick up two pairs of shoes. They're both Chloe. Nothing spectacular, but when you find a pair in your size and the color you want, you take them.
How are you getting around the city?
I've had the same driver here for 10 years here in New York. His name is Sydney.
What will we never find in your suitcase?
Probably a skirt, I never wear them. A skirt to the knee? You will never see me in that.

There aren't a lot of places that you can pull off this look, but luckily for Kylie Minogue, she has a world concert tour to make it work. Dolce & Gabbana has created the stage wardrobe for Kylie's "Les Folies Tour" which just kicked off in Denmark. "We are given free reign to create because she trusts that we know exactly what she likes," the designers revealed in a statement. "This will be our third tour with Kylie, and this time we have revisited iconic Dolce & Gabbana pieces, adapting them to different themes of the tour." Warning: Do not try this at home.

Reed Krakoff not only serves as the creative director of Coach, but he's won a new legion of fans with his own collection. We had a quick visit with the busy designer before his show. 

 

Last year was your first collection for this brand, how are things different this year?

 

In every way. Having experienced a couple collections now, I have a better idea of what I want to say and how to say. I know how to produce a collection with a point of view that is really mine. It takes some time. For me, it's a new beginning. It's the first collection that feels really personal.  

 

Were you more nervous last year?

 

I think so. It's never easy, but the first show is always tricky.

 

How do you divide your time between Coach and your own line?

 

I don't have any rigid time set between the two. I've worked with a lot of the Coach team for 15 years. Since Coach isn't on the fashion calendar, it doesn't ever conflict in terms of shows.

 

Where are you from originally?

 

Connecticut. 

 

If you could speak to your ten-year-old self, what would you say?

 

I would say what all parents say to their kids: You have to do what you love. There's nothing wrong with working hard. 

 

What would the ten-year-old Reed think of all of this?

 

He would be picking his nose, looking in another direction, and not listening, which is what kids do. 

 

How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

 

I get like six. That's reasonable, right?

Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. ended fashion week with a bang last night at the tents. Chic Report caught up with the singer, designer, wife and mommy before her collection, and found out what cover she'll be on next! 

 

What do your kids think of your gig as a fashion designer? 

 

They're excited. We were playing beauty shop before I came here. I'm trying to get my son Kingston to let me straighten his hair. He was into it. I think I have about six more months of that, and he's likely to be over it because he's four and a half. 

 

Kingston was so cute on the runway at the end of your show in September.

 

He's always cute.

 

You're a fashion icon to many. Who is Gwen's fashion icon?

 

I love Vivienne Westwood, John Galiano, Bjork, Julie Andrews....

 

What do you call your hairstyle?

 

I don't know. A q-tip puff? I don't know what it is!

 

Do you get nervous?

 

Nope. I'm not nervous. I do get nervous right before the models go on.  I get nervous before I'm going to walk out because it's just so different than a concert. Maybe this time I won't! 

 

What will you do to celebrate the collection tonight? 

 

I have to shoot tomorrow, I don't have to, I get to shoot the cover of Elle tomorrow. So I probably won't be celebrating too much. I'll be getting some ZZZZZ's.

Brad Goreski gushing to Fashion TV Host Jeanne Baker: "You are everything to me. You are my reason for wanting to be in fashion. You were my link! When I was a little tiny boy in Canada, I turned on Fashion TV every single night and made my family watch it. You were my window. You've impacted my life so much! It's a huge honor to talk to you. You have no idea what it meant to me to have your eyes and that news in my living room in Port Perry, Ontario. I've told many people and I'm glad I get to tell you. Thank you so much."
