Emmy Rossum has only commendation for Giorgio Armani. The actress was close by for the WWD Honors event in New York this week to commend the designer, who got the John B. Fairchild award.
She stated, “Giorgio Armani, to me, means class, strength, femininity, impeccable tailoring and timeless style. For any women, that’s how I want to feel. The family has been incredibly kind, generous and supportive of me.”
Rossum discussed what makes her vibe most empowered with regards to fashion and said it’s everything regarding comfort.
“I have to feel like myself — whatever that means on that day,” she included. “When I’m directing, I go for comfort and something I can bend down and sit on the floor in. When you’re in a position of power, you want to be comfortable, you want to be in your own skin and you should feel like yourself. I usually gravitate to looser, more comfortable kind of menswear shapes. I don’t think too much about it, but I do put out my clothes the night before when I direct. As an actor I’m used to somebody dressing me.”
Different participants included Drew Barrymore, Iman Abdulmajid, Andre Leon Talley, Emily Adams Bode, Hilary Rhoda, Kate Young, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, Olivia Palermo and Vera Wang.
Notwithstanding Armani, Pierpaolo Piccioli brought home the Womenswear Designer award, Kim Jones was awarded with the menswear respect while Stella McCartney got the Corporate Citizenship trophy.
