Michael Kors Dishes On Intern-Turned-Boyfriend Lance LePere

New York Magazine profiled designer and "Project Runway" judge Michael Kors, and while we were entertained by his childhood anecdotes and New York nightlife stories, we were most intrigued by the details on Kors' longtime boyfriend, Lance LePere. From the article:

It was in Paris that he and LePere fell in love. They'd known each other since 1990, when LePere joined the company as an intern, but there was something about being together abroad that solidified things. "We share a certain level of taste," LePere says, "an American point of view, and I think we like to play with Americana. Over the years and the day-to-day process of dreaming together, things just naturally fell into place." They started taking their meals together at the Parisian outpost of Joe Allen. "We could have quesadillas, they had cranberry juice," Kors says. "I don't know that either of us was really accepting the French lifestyle.

According to New York Mag, the couple has a house on Water Island, part of Fire Island, where Kors loves hosting LePere's nieces and nephews, once buying them an ice-cream maker. They also enjoy going to the theater and recently saw "Red" on Broadway.
