It was a cute-man-a-thon at the Richard Chai Love menswear/womenswear show earlier today, where we caught up with Chai himself, America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon (aka Mr. Mariah Carey) and OKC point-guard/fashion plate Russell Westbrook and chatted about fall TV, politican-style and their first Fashion Week memories.


Are you excited for any TV shows to come back this fall?

Revenge actually! I know, I know. The whole point of it is that you hate it, but you can't stop watching it. The thing is, I never actually watched it when it was on TV. That's very typical of me. I don't watch shows when they're actually airing. And I'll watch all of them over a weekend on Hulu and Netflix. Basically, I watched in it about four days so I think that averages to about 5 hours a day or something like that.

Have you ever watched Girls?

I have. 

If you had to be a character on the show, which one would you be?

Well I definitely wouldn't be the bohemian girl. I think I would be a bit of Lena Dunham's character and Allison Williams' character.

Do you remember the first fashion show you went to?

I snuck into a Victor Alfaro fashion show, at the library when I was a student. And then my second show was an Isaac [Mizrahi] show!


Who are the best and worst dressed politicians?

I'm always gonna go with our President as the best! But the majority of them are the worst.

Do you remember your first fashion show?

Um... man, my first one? It had to be like early 2000. I'm pretty sure it was Phat Farm when Russell [Simmons] was doing it.


Is this your first Fashion Week?

This is my first Fashion Week and first fashion show! I'm really excited. I'm experiencing something new.

What TV shows are you currently obsessed with?

I like True Blood. I love the genre. But I don't watch so many shows -- I don't have time! If I'm playing, then the shows are going off.
