Our Holiday Q&A With Zac Posen


We sat down with the dashing designer to find out which celebs he loves to dress, and how he plays at-home mixologist.

What are you most proud of to this day?
Dressing the first lady was incredible. Dressing Angelina Jolie was really fun. Gwyneth Paltrow. Cate Blanchett. Oprah. I’m most proud that I’ve been able to dress a diversity of different kinds of women. Of age. Of race. Of body. That I’ve been able to create a message of joy within glamour.

With all your success, are you still intimidated by Anna Wintour [who helped put you on the map]?
No. I’m inspired by powerful women who are leaders. She holds everything to such a high level of  perfection. And I’m a perfectionist and Scorpio as well. Of course you are always nervous... You know, I only ever want to bring wonderful news to her. But I adore her. She’s been a great mentor and friend.

What is your favorite cocktail?
I make a fierce Bloody Mary. But, it’s more of a Massachusetts recipe. I also love a red beer. That’s always fun.

What about a go-to holiday dish?
I cook three nights a week. I love stuffing. I’m so crazy about it. I love doing it in the muffin tin so it gets crispy and soft inside. I love all kinds of squash and pumpkins.

And looking past the holidays, what excites you about the Spring 2013 collections?
I think it’s a great time to invest in a dress and I think it’s a dress and jacket moment.
