Milly’s Michelle Smith Takes Us Inside Her Showroom

Wanna know who’s mad about Milly? Take a look at Kate Hudson, who loves the label’s jumpsuits, or Michelle Obama, who covets her dresses. Now, Stylish is taking a look at Michelle Smith, the founder and designer who powers the brand. Tune in to today’s Red Carpet Daily, presented by AT&T, to see her Manhattan showroom, as well as some of the designs she creates in it.

When we say that Smith is hands-on with Milly, we mean it. The designer tries on every piece that she makes to check the quality. “It allows me to put a lot of love into every piece,” she tells Stylish.

Samira Wiley returned that love by wearing a black and green halter gown to the 2016 CFDA Awards, where she was Smith’s date. And the first lady, 52, stunned in a black, off-the-shoulder dress with exaggerated bell sleeves on the cover of Essence’s October 2016 issue. “I was so excited and so honored to have these beautiful and accomplished women wearing my clothes,” Smith gushed.
