On a recent spring night, Michael Kors went to his old haunt Studio 54 to see “Sondheim on Sondheim,” a recent Broadway production by the Roundabout Theatre Company. Lee Radziwill sat across the aisle from him, and as the lights dimmed, Barbra Streisand took her seat. Vanessa Williams, who stars in the show, was decked out in Kors. “I sound like Cindy Adams, but only in New York could this happen,” Kors recalls.
That the designer himself was right at the center of it should come as no surprise. Since launching into fashion almost three decades ago, Kors has become a central character on Seventh Avenue and beyond, and his telegenic turn as a judge on “Project Runway” has made him a national celebrity.
