Stan's D'aily Designer Interview: Chris Benz

New York-Stan D'Arde

On Monday night, pink-haired designer Chris Benz took over fashion week, starting off with an incredibly luxurious showing of his A/W 12 collection. Glamour like that doesn't come easy. Later in the evening, he took the party over to The Standard, East Village's Penthouse where friends like Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr stopped by to congratulate him. He took a moment to speak to me, one of his non-celeb party guests, and to answer my questions of the week...

Most important accessory for a man?

Designing for The Duchess of Cambridge would be...

Amazing ... I would only be one degree from Harry.

Better than I do about suede.

The last thing that made me gasp...

The rotating hotdogs at Seven Eleven.

My apartment.

So into...

Living in a hotel ... Hum hum!
