Ralph Lauren, Formerly Ralph Lifshitz, Dislikes His First Name Too

For their October issue, Vanity Fair did a Proust Questionnaire with designer Ralph Lauren. When asked what his favorite names were, the man who changed his last name from Lifshitz to Lauren, stated that "'Ralph' is not one of them."

He also shared that the living person he most admires is President Obama, that he's happiest eating "a burnt-bacon cheeseburger and pecan pie at J. G. Melon," and that Ricky, his wife of 45 years, is the love of life.

Read more of his answers at Vanity Fair, or read a review of his Spring 2010 collection at Fashion Week.
