What Do The Hard To Please Fashion Set Look For In A Mate?
We went backstage at Fashion Week to ask the sexiest of them all what makes them tick?
What do the fashion set look for in a mate? They seem to be the pickiest of them all! While I was covering New York Fashion Week I was around designers, models and some mini-celebs, so I decided to do some research on love, dating and sex since I was tripping the light fantastic around what other people may consider their ideal dates.
At the Mik Cire show, a great menswear designer I caught up with some of his models backstage to talk about what these young men are looking for in their ladies. Berthold, a lanky, long-haired fellow was what they described to me jokingly as their “bitch shield.” In order for him to let down his guard and want to engage in a convo with a girl what would it take? “Someone who has good energy and can be natural. I want to talk to someone who wants to talk. Not someone looking to get a date with me. And she has to have great eyes.” A.J. and Tobias also agreed with the “great eyes” comment. Mr. A.J. is looking for someone that is charismatic and has that X-factor. I know, I know, not very specific but we all remember those people we’ve met along the way that have that, oh, I don’t know, a certain, “je ne sais quoi.” “She also has to be able to hold a good conversation,” he adds.
Tobias is more fun-loving. “I really like a lady with charm. Someone with a clever wit that we can laugh together.” His type? “I like a classy girl with an edge.” Corey chimed in that he’d just like someone fun to hang out with, preferably with red hair. Will, obviously the comedian of the group, wants a microbiologist that can quote the whole script to The Big Lebowski and whose last name is preferably “Jagger.” I’ll get right on that for you Will…
