L.A.-based designer Michael Stars is the king of California casual cool. Since launching his eponymous women’s clothing brand in 1986, Stars has earned cult status among the Hollywood set for his chic eyeglasses, luxurious T-shirts, and comfy maternity clothes. Flattering fits, a wide spectrum of colors, and super-sumptuous materials (supima modal cotton, cozy cashmere, and micro-jersey are his top choices) make his classic fitted tees, lace leggings, sweaters, and subtly sexy dresses look as fabulous as they feel. Michael Stars’ fabric innovations include his signature shine fabric, a staple of the dress-down-to-dress-up aesthetic. From top fashion magazines to celebrity closets, Michael Stars' "casual luxury" has spread around the world.
