Last night at the Hot Pink Party for breast-cancer research we overheard Michael Kors talking about Spanx. Underthings being a favorite topic of ours, we tottered over to join the conversation. “I was talking about how they should make Spanx for men and call it Manx. Manx for men. But I’m not wearing Manx. But I might,” Kors said. As a designer, surely he could make that happen. “We don’t do men’s underwear, but that could be our entrée into men’s underwear,” Kors added, smiling proudly. In the meantime, he’s working on last-minute preparations for the Met ball. His dates include Lauren Hutton, Carmen Kass (his label’s spring face), and January Jones. Though he’s been in the business for ages, going to high-profile affairs overseen by Anna Wintour never gets easier. “I always get nervous,” he said.
