MICHAEL KORS

HE’S GOT GWYNETH ON SPEED DIAL, HAS DRESSED EVERYONE FROM ANNA WINTOUR TO OPRAH AND HAS BUILT A BILLIONDOLLAR BUSINESS EMPIRE FROM SCRATCH. FROM CHILD MODEL TO MODEL AMERICAN, THIS IS MICHAEL KORS...

I’m going to be very New York and change the bread, but I’m going to have a roast beef sandwich. Perfect. I have to tell you, I am definitely not a kale enthusiast. Last night, they had these wonderful gnocchi, and I told Gwyneth I was going to go to the men’s room, but if she touched the gnocchi on my plate there’d be hell to pay.”

About Winq

The new issue of the biggest gay magazine in the world is here! Winq is 196 pages of luxury lifestyle for discerning gents. Get your hands on the gay magazine you’ve always wanted. In our new August/September issue, chat show queen Ellen DeGeneres and fashion legend Michael Kors grace the cover. Ellen talks the return of forgetful fish Dory and lesbian stereotypes, while Michael Kors reflects on his illustrious career and married life. Peruvian model-turned-chef Franco Noriega is one hot dish in the food section, and we welcome our new columnist Cameron Laux, who will be sharing the ins and outs of being a gay dad over the coming issues. In our travel pages, we’re following our hearts to San Francisco and getting back to basics in Namibia, while the travel theme continues in our bumper style section with stylish shoots from Suriname, Israel, Vegas and France. All of this, within bigger and better sections dedicated to people, travel, style, business, home, fitness and culture. Be upstanding, Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
