Blake Lively, Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Katie Holmes take individual covers of THR‘s Top 25 Red Carpet Designers issue with Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, Valentino‘s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, and Zac Posen, respectively.
Here’s what they had to share with the mag:
Michael, on Blake: “Even in the most glamorous dress, Blake still looks at ease — which I think is the trick to looking terrific.” Blake added, “There is an effortlessness to the elegance of all of Michael’s clothes. His brand of glamour seems attainable. Everything he does is really warm and inviting, just like he is — very inviting.”
Alexander, on Nicole: “She’s an icon. Both a fashion icon and an acting icon.” Nicole adds, “I can’t believe these gowns; they’re amazingly cut and detailed. They’re not like what anyone else designs.”
Zac, on Katie: “When I first saw Katie and her rapport on a red carpet, I saw that magic. Some people are just born with star quality — she comes alive on the red carpet and you can feel this.”
