NYC Fashion Week: Fall/Winter 2011: Michael Kors

If the celebrity crush was a little crushier and the furs on the runway a little fluffier at Michael Kors this morning, there was a good reason. The designer is marking his 30th year in business. Yes, he started young—at 19, in fact. Tonight, he'll celebrate in the tony confines of Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle, where it's a good bet that some of the boldfacers in the front row—Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bette Midler, Anjelica Huston, and Debra Messing, for starters—will turn up. Next month, no less a figure than the American ambassador to France will welcome him to Paris, with a festive dinner. Kors is opening a store there on Rue Saint-Honoré, and they're putting the finishing touches on a renovated Madison Avenue flagship as we speak. In other words, the designer is having a pretty good birthday year.
