Whitney Port is on the DL1961

The City star Whitney Port attends the launch of DL1961 Premium Denim at South Coast Plaza on Saturday (October 3) in Costa Mesa, Calif.

After singing autographs and taking pictures with hundreds of fans, here’s what the 24-year-old fashion designer opened up to about:

JJ: How have the people you have worked with over the years influenced the creation of your fashion line, like Kelly Cutrone and Diane Von Furstenberg?

WP: They have influenced it a lot. With Diane, it was huge for me because she designs for the everyday woman, she really keeps every body size and type of personality in mind. I really learned that I need to look out for that. With Kelly, from a PR standpoint, she really taught me to narrow it down to who my audience is, who I’m designing for and to stay focused.

JJ: How much creative control did you have for your line?

WP: 100%! I tend to really micromanage things. If I’m investing something and I am passionate about it, then I go full force into it. While I had people helping me with the business, production and PR side of it, the design part is all me.

JJ: Who are your style icons?

WP: I love Keira Knightley — she dresses amazing. Anne Hathaway as well. I like Beyonce — she wears some awesome things.

    I love her top too! Laker’s purple! Seriously, Whitney looks great. Glad to see threads on her and Blake Lively. Girls that should be labled as fashion icons! She looks smashingly good. Well done Whitney.

    Wow, she’s incredibly ugly. Look at her legs, I almost feel sorry for her.

    @Kay: what about her legs, ive seen her in a bikini, and she actually has some pretty skinny legs

    she’s so boring but at the same time you i kinda wouldnt mind that from a girl, not boring in the usual way, but celeb boring, so she seems to have stability and not be all crazy like all the other hills girls
