Michael Douglas looks better than ever as he joins Catherine Zeta-Jones at Michael Kors' New York Fashion Week show




Survivor: Michael Douglas was the picture of health as he and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones arrived at the Lincoln Center for Michael Kors' New York Fashion Week show today

You would never have guessed Michael Douglas had just been battling cancer as he arrived at the Michael Kors fashion show in New York this morning.

The actor, 66, who accompanied his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones to the event, looked the picture of health as the pair arrived at the city's Lincoln Center.

The pair were part of a host of A-list guests in the front row, where they joined Bette Midler, Emma Roberts, Anjelica Houston, Renee Russo and Debra Messing, as well as Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

They made for a patriotic palette together, all in shades of red, white and blue.
Ms Messing, who wore head-to-toe Michael Kors, admitted that he was the only reason she came to Fashion Week.

'I came to fashion week exclusively for Michael Kors,' she said. 'He’s the real deal, he makes me feel confident, strong and effortless.'

The designer, who is celebrating 30 years in the industry this year, won high praise for his collection, which featured flowing shapes in sheer shimmering fabrics.

Halternecks and thigh-high splits added drama, while the asymmetric neckline continues to transcend seasons.

It was not without his signature tailoring though, in the shape of grey and caramel trouser-suits.

And though his oversized fur coats are unlikely to find fans in animal rights group PETA, Anna Wintour, who was also in the front row, probably loved them.

Backstage, after the show, the designer said: 'I don’t try to put people in a garment that’s not them.

'Even the models. For this show we matched their outfits to their skin tone. If you’re sporty, wear sporty. I don’t believe in the Cinderella look,' he told the Wall Street Journal.

Ken Downing, fashion director of Neiman Marcus said the label was a consistent favourite wwith his store's shoppers.
