ISAAC MIZRAHI spilled a little more than a few drops of his first fragrance at the launch of FABULOUS at Bloomingdales last week. The Project Runway: All Stars judge disclosed the names of some of this season’s judges, including Katie Holmes, Stacy Keibler, Jason Wu, and Diane Von Furstenberg. He also revealed the cast will head to the city of lights to get an inside look at Valentino! “I’m not going to tell you when it happens, but they go to Paris to the atelier of Valentino,” He said. “It’s so crazy you’re going to die! You should definitely make it destination TV.”
While we were there he also spoke about who he envisioned sporting his new scent. “It’s every single idea I’ve had about fabulous women, starting with my mom,” he explained. “When you’re in New York, you have a lot of exposure to fabulous women. When I was 18 and working at Perry Ellis, I got to meet Lauren Bacall who came in for clothes one day, and I nearly died. She smelled like bergamot. You associate these smells with the word ‘fabulous,’ like tuberose -- my mom wore a tuberose-heavy scent. It's a witty scent, but there has to be a little bit of crazy in there. I think that if you’re going to be fabulous, you have to commit to this idea of crazy.” We like the smell of that!
Tune into the season premiere of Project Runway: All Stars tonight at 9:00 PM/8:00 on Lifetime.
