Thanksgiving may be one of our favorite indulgent, no-calorie-counting days, but it is also the best time to give thanks to all the special people in our lives. In celebration of Turkey Day, The Thread asked seven designers—Lela Rose, Monique Lhuillier, Lubov Azria of BCBGMAXAZRIA and Herve Leger, Rebecca Taylor, Michelle Smith of Milly, Melinda Maria and Patricia Nash—to dish about what they’re thankful for and what they can’t wait to eat.
Whether she’s picking apples with daughter Rosey or dressing First Lady Michelle Obama for this month’s Ladies’ Home Journal, Lela takes on life with a nonchalant elegance.
Lela Rose says:
I’m thankful for… “The life I have lived thus far. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. I have a family I love and adore, and I get to do something creative and fulfilling for work.”
This Thanksgiving, I’m craving… “We are in Mexico for Thanksgiving and will not be having our traditional meal. What I will miss most is the boule de neige cake that my aunt makes. It is DIVINE!”
This Filipino designer has been wowing brides with her couture creations since launching her label in 1996. We especially ♥ her Bliss collection.
Monique Lhuillier says:
I am thankful for… “My family, friends and loving what I do every day!! The gift of creating special and beautiful pieces that make women feel special is so rewarding.”
This Thanksgiving, I’m craving… “I am heading down to Mexico for a few days with my family, and I am looking forward to having the freshest fish tacos and guacamole. Olé!”
