Daniel Vosovic Approached Gabourey Sidibe’s Stylist


Ex–Project Runway contestant Daniel Vosovic enjoyed good reviews for his first solo Fashion Week show in New York in February. He hopes that even as a small label he'll be able to dress celebrities for red-carpet appearances. "I’m a little obsessed with Zoe Saldana, but that’s too easy. You could throw combat boots and a paper bag [on her], and I guarantee she’d rock the shit out of it," he told us last night at the premiere of Breaking Upwards. "But I did approach Gaby Sidibe’s stylist, and we are going to hopefully be working in the future on something."

He continued: "To me, that would be a standout and accomplishment, to take something that’s not exactly a sample size and make it not just work, but make it a fashion moment. Because I think red-carpet dressing is so mundane and now having had my own collection, I’m competing with corporations and it sucks. And it’s like, 'No, I want you because I like you and respect your work to wear my clothes, not because you gave me $10,000 to do so.'"
