Amidst the fray and throbbing club music, I caught a moment with the designer to get some style tips on dressing up tees and sweats, the real scoop on the Miley/Bangerz situation, and OMG, Beyoncé.
Brian Lichtenberg and Lydia Hearst are homiès
GLAMOUR: So you're really known for your irreverent T-shirts that celebrities love to wear. What's your advice in styling a T-shirt or sweatshirt to dress it up?
Brian Lichtenberg: During the day you might wear jeans and a sweatshirt, but you could dress it up by putting a diamond necklace on or leather leggings or a pencil skirt. It's that casual-luxe that has been in trend for a while, and it's comfortable and wearable and it's effortless.
So what's the story on you dressing Miley Cyrus for her upcoming Bangerz tour?
BL: Well, that actually is a little stretch, but I do love Miley. And whatever she wants me to do in the future, I will do anything. But that was a stretch.
Ah, I see. Well, celebs love wearing your designs—who has been your favorite star to dress?
BL: Definitely when I dressed Beyoncé. She wore a custom outfit, in her music video "Diva" that I was up the night before making, and I got to be on video set and watching her was just amazing. Like when you meet someone you already admire and their personality makes you love them even more...Beyoncé is definitely my favorite. And Miley too; she's great.
Who's the one celeb you would love to dress but haven't yet?
BL: I've always wanted...I grew up listening to someone like Madonna or Björk. That would be really cool, just to bring it full circle.
