Fashion Group International Night of Stars

Cipriani Wall Street. October 27, 2011. By Bennett Marcus

If you guys could design anything besides your current line, what would it be? “Well, I really like baseball, so I feel like baseball uniforms would be cool.” Do you follow baseball? “I don’t have much knowledge in it, but I go to Dodgers games.” —KATE MULLEAVY

JESSICA BIEL

If you could design something other than ceramics, what would it be? “I always think that if I hadn’t been a potter I would have been a cobbler. I’m not qualified for a career that uses my mind, but my paws are very effective. I’m better suited to 19th-century jobs.” —JONATHAN ADLER

RAF SIMONS

OSCAR DE LA RENTA

What’s your biggest fashion faux-pas? “I’ve tripped a few times. I mean, I do wear only six to eight-inch heels. I’ve worn fur when everyone’s vegan. I’ve mortified my publicist several times.” —STACEY BENDET

DAPHNE GUINNESS

EDWARD ENNINFUL

Do your Knicks teammates ask you for fashion advice? “Yeah, the guys all the time call me and ask me, where can they find a pair of jeans, where can they find a tailor-made suit, where can they get a nice pair of socks?” —AMAR’E STOUDEMIRE

FRANCISCO COSTA

DAVID BYRNE

You’ve had a crazy past month, career-wise. Any favorite memories? “Having Theo [Wenner] come to my hometown and meet my parents. That was great.” —LINDSEY WIXSON

SALLY SINGER

LEELEE SOBIESKI

Now that you’re on the CFDA board, are you going to have CFDA parties at your house? “Like Donna Karan? Maybe.” —LAZARO HERNANDEZ Is your house big enough to hold all those people? “No. Maybe they should get us a new house.” —JACK MCCOLLOUGH “Tell Andrew [Rosen] to get us a new house.” —LAZARO HERNANDEZ

LAUREN BUSH-LAUREN AND DAVID LAUREN

ISABELLA ROSSELLINI

Do you have any creative talents outside of design? “She’s an incredible cook. She makes the best black beans in the world.” —Ruben Toledo “But see, that’s not a hobby. It’s just we’ve got to eat.” —Isabel Toledo

DYLAN LAUREN

ANNA SUI

What else would you like to design, besides clothes? “A car that’s just for women. Cars are an image thing for men, and it would be very nice to turn it into something for women.” —GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
