QW 020512 “Simon Doonan 1”

A podcast “Conversation with Slate: Simon Doonan” has fascinated me so irresistibly that I’ve been listening to his talk for days and days. Simon is “the Creative Ambassador-at-Large of the New York City-based clothing store Barneys (Wikipedia)”. The way he talks with comfortably-sounding British accent is witty, astute, yet warm. In order to learn from what he spoke to Slate Group editor-in-chief Jacob Weisberg, I'll transcribe the highlight of the 60-minute interview in sequel QW posts.

Simon on Michelle Obama:
I worked on the first Obama’s Christmas at the White House. It was an incredible experience… It was a long process of approvals and preparation. It was like a nine-month process... We went into the library and laid all out. Ms. Obama came in and we spent two hours there discussing everything looking where it’s gonna go. It was, you know, I get nervous when I meet very famous people. I stop feeling like I should be serving them drinks, or running out to get them pizza or something. But this is Ms. Obama put everybody at ease. She’s so fabulous. I think she habits that role. She’s now the gold standard for habiting that role. I really think she is. She’s incredibly poised, incredibly warm, very very genuine, totally unpretentious, um, smart beyond belief, like to me she’s that role there’s like a whole new, you know, boilerplate for what that role should be that she’s created because she’s so extraordinary. It was very, um, very impressive to me for her to prove everything, chat about everything. I can’t believe it was happening. It was one of those moments… When she forth went into the White House, I kept thinking that they were talking too much about her fashion, you know, all this coverage of her fashion. I actually was approached several times by, um, NPR to speak about what she was wearing and why it was so interesting thing. I don’t think you should be covering her fashion. She’s the first lady. No! … She was allowed to be more of a person, the person with causes and interests, and that happened subsequently. But initially, the press was so obsessed with how she looked. And it was a function of fan. She’s incredibly poised. You know, she’s 6 foot tall. So she’s a model. So she automatically looks very impressive even when in an old pretty house dress. She looks really groovy. So I think it was probably the function of that.
