Michael Kors On Dressing Bette Midler
BY PHILLIP PICARDI
SEPTEMBER 22, 2017
Then, my whole life, I’ve always been a huge Bette Midler fan and then I became friendly with Bette, and now we’ve been friends for a very, very long time. Opening night of Hello, Dolly! was, for me, a bit of alchemy, to see that kind of talent in the right part at the right time all come together. When she got nominated for the Tony, I said to her, anything you need, please, we’d love to help. To be backstage and fit her in her Tony’s gown in between matinee and evening performances of Hello, Dolly! was very special, and it all kind of came full circle for me.
