Chelsea Art Museum. September 5, 2007. By Jada Yuan

Are you learning about fashion? “Wear your shirts out. I was the quintessential tuck in your shirt, put on a tie, and look stupid. That's ended. ” —Harvey Weinstein

You touch the clothes? “You're not supposed to, but I do. I'm bad. I didn't eat pizza beforehand. Well, I did eat pizza, but I washed my hands. ” —Phillip Bloch

Rachel Zoe

Do you prefer presentations to runway shows? “I don't know if we're supposed to make eye contact. Some girls have broken and smiled, and others just stare straight through you. ” —Anne Hathaway

Get any good swag yet? “Marc Jacobs gave me a leather handbag. I'm obsessed with it. ” —Chanel Iman
