Meet The Designer: Zac Posen

Posted on

“It’s all about glamour!” It’s no suprise to anyone who has seen the 25 year-old wunderkind Zac Posen‘s creations on stars such as Rachel Bilson, Rihanna (left, with Posen), and Felicity Huffman, that he is all about classic Hollywood screen sirens and celebrating a woman’s body. Speaking at the New Yorker Festival this weekend, he stressed the importance of any body type being able to wear his clothes — even having used a size 16 model in his shows before. But it’s not just about clothes for him — Mischa Barton and Beyonce are already rocking his new line of purses and shoes. And as for those red-carpet customers? Joking that any woman who wears his dresses is “a celebrity in her town or her group of friends,” he believes “stars are really who we look to as fashion leaders–they are the gods of our culture.” At the very least, they certainly look like modern-day goddesses in his creations. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
