Designer Michael Kors sent down a hit parade of sporty-luxe looks to celebrate his label’s 30th anniversary. And what a celebration it was with supermodels who rarely walk the runway these days such as Angela Lindvall, Isabeli Fontana, Frankie Rayder, Erin Wasserman, Carmen Kass and Karolina Kurkova strutting that polished Kors’ signature look -- sleek, glam, elegant, athletic.

And to add to the fun (and oh, it was) celebs such as Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones (captivated by the clothes), Bette Midler (bopping to the lively music), Debra Messing, Emma Roberts and Angelica Houston sat front row.

So natch, the silhouette was long and lean -- leggy tailored trousers, these often balanced by fluffy, big furs and cushy sweaters. There were spare shifts in alpaca, and slashed skirts. For evening glam, a deep, drapey V’d crystal dotted bodysuit worn with a nude mannish blazer and trouser of stretch crepe, sexy draped crystal-coated gowns over billowy sheer pajamas pants -- totally glamour puss. 

Color palate included blush and plum (for uber-luxe -- a blush fox bathrobe coat, a plum fox jacket), a bit of black, a pop of crimson, and then those famous Kors skin tones of nude, cocoa and yes, suntan for the perennially bronzed designer.  Hail Michael. And happy anniversary!
