Exclusive! Isaac Mizrahi on LoHud, red carpets and Britney Spears

Before dishing the details behind his late-January car accident that fractured his hip, Isaac Mizrahi talked to Suburbarazzi about a wider range of topics during the same exclusive sit-down interview.

At the start of this Feb. 24 discussion at the Lord & Taylor branch in Eastchester, topics included his previous visit to LoHud territory, his thoughts on Hollywood stars who could use StriVectin (the anti-wrinkle cream he was pitching that day) and his genuine appreciation of Britney Spears. He also discussed why he doesn’t plan on doing any more red carpet analysis for the Oscars.

<blockquote><div>When was the last time you were in Westchester, Putnam or Rockland?

I know I came here with my mother when I was a kid, and it was this Lord & Taylor. This is sort of a real flagship Lord & Taylor. I know when I was a kid, I came here but that was probably the last time. But I have to say, on my way in, I was considering (the area), because it’s such a great alternative, because it only took an hour to get here.

So who in Hollywood in most in need of StriVectin?

(Laughs and “oohs� come from Mizrahi’s entourage and Lord & Taylor personnel.) I think a lot people in Hollywood have too much face work. I really do. I wish before they had the work done they had thought a little bit about the stretch mark cream. Because I think everybody (with plastic surgery) looks odd; I really do. First of all, I can tell usually that they’ve had the work done. I don’t know who they think they’re fooling.

Speaking of Hollywood, are you doing the red carpet (analysis at the Oscars)? </div></blockquote>
