Dressing The Movie Stars, From Zac Posen (VIDEO)

When asked about who his favorite Hollywood celebrities have been to dress, fashion designer Zac Posen had some fun stories to share with us.

Zac first got into dressing Hollywood actresses due to his interest in theater. When he approaches a celebrity to dress, he asks each individual what roles they’d like to play in the future. “I see it as a full collaboration. You're working with an artist,” Zac said. “If they have an idea of who they are, they put that into it.”

Zac especially loved working with Gwyneth Paltrow, who saw a dress she wanted to wear to the Oscars on cable access and had her stylist call Zac the following day.

Oprah is another favorite client. “I see beauty in diversity. Everybody is different and my job as a designer is to celebrate that,” Zac told us. He loves to embrace different body types and make them even more beautiful through his designs.

Another unexpected favorite Hollywood actress: 14 year-old Kiernan Shipka, from the hit TV show “Mad Men.” Zac made her a clean, age-appropriate dress to wear on the red carpet. “She just has it!” Zac raved.
