We asked Michael Kors to tell us a little about the MK collection: Sport, Sexy, Glam.
Why SPORTY SEXY GLAM?
My inspiration comes from the women in my life. I’ve always been interested in their layers. For instance, my mom was usually sporty. She always had a suntan and she never spent more than two minutes on her make-up before she was out the door. My grandmother was a bit glam. She was an indulgent fragrance user. It was always in her bath, on her wrists, behind her ears.
The collection is more than a trend – it’s about mood. And the Michael Kors woman has three main moods – Sporty, Sexy and Glam. Most women have all three inside of them. And sometimes they turn the volume up or down on one of those three elements.
What is your approach to fashion?
Fashion is about a heightened sense of reality, being the best version of yourself. And this requires a collection of essentials:
- A great black dress,
- A classic trench coat
- Jeans that make your figure look amazing.
What is sporty?
A woman who’s active and a part of the world pulls her hair loosely into a ponytail. It’s a relaxed yet colorful approach to living. I think of women like Gwyneth Paltrow pulling their hair into a simple ponytail on the red carpet. It’s all about ease.
What is sexy?
It’s about confidence. Everything is effortless and sensual. Sexy is about knowing yourself well. Angelina Jolie has that strong, confident attitude from every day to the red carpet.
What is glam?
Glam is a little bit of indulgence and a lot of attitude. When a woman is feeling glam, she has a bravado that catches every eye in the room. Jennifer Lopez exemplifies modern glamour in every situation.
What’s your most important beauty tip?
Make-up shouldn’t be a mask. The SPORTY SEXY GLAM woman exudes an easy, carefree beauty that looks like it took about two seconds. Don’t cover the texture of your skin. It should glow. This collection gives you that effect – it’s easy and attainable.
