Editor in Chief of
interviewed Issac Mizrahi,
and creative director for
Liz Claiborne at yesterday's
Convention. Their Q&A focused on age
appropriate fashion, and how 40+ women can
pack a punch into their wardrobe.
An excerpt of
the conversation follows:
Palin's look and why she should get rid of
her $35,000 personal tanning machine:
Oh she looks

for God's sake.
