Designer Michael Costello Has His Eye Set On The First Lady
Celebrity designer Michael Costello has dressed stars from Beyonce to Britney Spears and now he has his eyes set on the First Lady.
HipHollywood caught up with the Project Runway winner at the 16th annual DesignCare event on Saturday. The event was created by actress Holly Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback, Rodney Peete, to benefit the HollyRod Foundation, which is dedicated to helping those with Autism’s and Parkinson’s disease. Costello was this year’s featured designer and used the event to unveil his new collection, which included pieces that he will be featuring in his upcoming 2014 New York Fashion Week show.
Since Michael has designed for Beyonce on her Ms. Carter Tour and is now creating pieces for her On The Run Tour with Jay Z, we wanted to know how their relationship has developed when it comes to designing some of her most iconic tour ensembles.
“Now we are at the point where Beyonce will send me little personal messages which, are really cool, and Ty, the stylist, will send me messages and they will be like, ‘Hey we like this, do your own thing, just get inspired,’ which I think is really cool to have that trust with them,” Costello told us.
And now with Queen Bey’s trust locked down, Costello has his eyes set on on a new target for his designs — the Fist Lady.
According to Costello, the two recently met in Los Angeles where she complemented him on his work. He has since reached out to her team and is currently in the process of waiting to hear back. But when it comes to dressing the First Lady, one thing is certain, Costello wants to accent her body, show some leg, and get sexy with it while staying classy.
