Michael Kors Is Now a Billionaire, and These 10 Stars Will Show You Why
We’ll assume it’s probably a pretty good day when you find out you’ve joined the billionaire’s club alongside fashion figures the likes of Ralph Lauren and Tory Burch. And that’s the kind of day Michael Kors had on Tuesday, when it was announced that Kors is officially a billionaire, worth an estimated $1.1 billion, according to the New York Post. And though he can thank his soaring stocks for the newfound title, he has a few other folks to thank, too, including all of the stars who act as walking billboards when they hit the red carpet wearing his clothes (and looking really good doing it). So to toast to Kors’ money-making prowess, let’s take a look back at 10 of the hottest Michael Kors ensembles the stars have ever worn.
It’s hard not to notice a gorgeous, tall, blonde model wearing a shockingly pink gown, but it was the sexy slit and perfect fit of this Kors gown that had all eyes on Decker at the 2011 Met Gala.
It’s a testament to Kors’ talent that he can make a high-fashion star like Saldana look chicer than ever in nothing but a gray tank, a sleek pencil skirt, and a cute clutch to match.
We know the mega-star actress looks great in a black gown (case in point), but this lace column dress she wore to the 2012 Producers Guild Awards was one of her best ever (and it only needed a fraction of the slit to shine).
We’re not exactly sure how he managed to make circus stripes look chic, but they were over-the-top hot when this model wore them on a two-piece combo at Kors’ fashion week show. (The tailored black coat and edgy white heels didn’t hurt, either.)
Talk about a golden goddess! Kors had the actress looking like an Old Hollywood star at the 2012 Met Gala in this asymmetrical gold lamé gown.
Lively is one of the sexiest actresses in Hollywood, but it didn’t take more than a peek of skin to prove that when she wore this body-hugging-but-still-conservative sheath dress at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
Spotted: Major actress and singer looking wildly sexy in an animal print Kors gown at the 2013 Met Gala.
We love a glamorous gown just as much as the next girl, but The Vampire Diaries star proves that even Kors’ casual designs can pack a major fashion punch.
The lady in red looked perfectly polished in a lace tea-length number at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, proving that Kors knows how to nail both sexy and sophisticated styles.
OK, so the First Lady looks good in practically anything, but in a sequined black Kors gown? She looks downright amazing.
