A-list celebrities like Emma Stone and Kim Kardashian wear his designs on the red carpet, but Lanvin's Alber Elbaz says his life isn't glamorous compared to others in the industry. During a candid interview with Alina Cho at the Met, the Israeli-born designer opened up about his life outside of fashion. Elbaz says that while his muses and models share their extravagant lifestyle on social media, he's a lot more content with the simple pleasures of staying at home.
“People think that in fashion you wake up at mid-day with a glass of Champagne,” Elbaz said. “After work, I’m watching the Kardashians and ordering pizza."
Speaking of the first family of reality TV, Elbaz sang praises about Kim Kardashian — who wore Lanvin on her Vogue cover — whom he considers not only a personal friend, but also a nice person, role model and a smart girl. The designer also shared his thoughts about Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover debut and her highly publicized transition. "I'm happy that someone who has a dream made it come true," he said.
“At the time, I said I’m only going to work with people I love and design for women I like,” he said. “I like women who take charge of their lives. It’s much more difficult to be a woman.”
