Michael Kors Hearts Gaga; Viktor & Rolf to Return to the Mass Market?

Michael Kors on Lady Gaga, “Divine. I have to tell you, Lady Gaga makes me feel the way I felt when I first went to FIT and I was 18 and going to Studio 54 five nights a week. At 18, you feel like the world is fabulous. I had no idea that New York was in full collapse, the city was bankrupt, there was garbage on the street. Back then you had energy, you had something that was a little left of center that changed people’s opinions and their attitudes. I think that’s what she’s doing right now.” [NYP]
