Most designers rarely say much in public. If you have seen a fashion show, the designer will merely appear towards the end and rarely say anything more than thanks. Occasionally, you will hear bits and pieces of what they say in a fashion magazine like Vogue. There is an exception, however. Michael Kors, who is one of the judges on Project Runway with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia, has been on the program for so long that I have come to know him rather well. And my conclusion is that he is indeed a great designer and that is reflected not just in his work (particularly his handbags that I have seen at his boutique in the Natick Collection) but also in how he looks at things. Here is a great video that will tell you a little more about Kors' collection and what items of his you can buy.

Heidi Klum makeup
Heidi Klum has managed to thrive in the world of lingerie modeling despite being a mom and being much older than many other models that are in their teens and 20s. She has also launched a highly successful program "Project Runway" in which along with famous fashion designer Michael Kors, Tim Gunn, and editor Nina Garcia, they select a designer. In other words, Heidi knows how to look good on the runway and on the red carpet, and of course, going about your daily lives with little kids. She has now launched a makeup line that borrows tricks used by makeup artists who work on models and celebrities before a big event. With her makeup products you can try to create the look at home by yourself. She has created the makeup line with Linda Hay, makeup artist at Victoria's Secret.
