Lincoln Center Presents: An Evening With Ralph Lauren

Alice Tully Hall. October 24, 2011. By Jenni Avins

Did Oprah let you see her interview questions before tonight? “Nope, I didn’t ask to see them. And if I can’t answer what she asks, I’m gonna run.” —RALPH LAUREN

OPRAH WINFREY

What’s really popular for Halloween candy this year? “There’s some gross stuff, which I think I’ve seen a lot of men buy. Like body parts.” —DYLAN LAUREN

ANNA WINTOUR

You’ve got some green strands in your hair. “My two daughters have this on their hair. They’re little tassels called Japanese tassels — hair tassels. It’s kind of cool, huh? My hair person tied it in there. It lasts about two weeks. It’s a trend in Asia — in Japan and China.” —WENDI MURDOCH

LAUREN BUSH-LAUREN AND DAVID LAUREN

VERONICA WEBB

Is there any truth to the rumors about you joining the Early Show? “You can’t believe everything you read. But it’s a great rumor!” —GAYLE KING

UMA THURMAN

NAOMI WATTS

Do you give out candy at Halloween? “We give out candy. You know, we’re not food Nazis. I think the kids need to play at Halloween. If I give them a dime or an apple, it’s sort of insulting. I used to hate when people gave me cut-up apples in bags.” —DR. MEHMET OZ

TORY BURCH

LILY ALDRIDGE

What were you thinking to yourself during your Herman Cain interview the other night? “I was thinking, ‘Wow! I hope I don’t wake up soon and choose to be a homosexual!’” —PIERS MORGAN

ROBBIE MYERS

BRAD GORESKI

What will your kids be for Halloween? “My three-year-old is obsessed with this cartoon called The Bubble Guppies — it’s schoolchildren that are mermaids. I couldn’t find a costume, so I had to stitch a crooked mermaid outfit.” —JESSICA ALBA “It’s very handmade.” —CASH WARREN “VERY handmade. I just hope it doesn’t fall apart. That would be embarrassing, while she’s trick or treating.” —JESSICA ALBA

CHANEL IMAN

MICHAEL J. FOX AND TRACY POLLAN

Are you still trying to resolve next September’s Fashion Week schedule? “We’re working on it! [Winks]” —DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
