Talk about a great gig, and fun as well. George Kotsiopoulos not only gets to examine celebrity style as co-host of E! Fashion Police every Friday night, but he also gets to tour the country for Swarovski hosting parties and checking out what’s hot and what’s not.
Kotsiopoulous hosted a cocktail party held at the Swarovski boutique on Lincoln Road, in the heart of beautiful South Beach. He’d already been to Chicago and New York helping to educate fashionistas about the Austrian brand’s latest crystal collection and heads next to stores in San Francisco and Dallas.
IC: Tell us about tonight.
GK: Well I’m here hosting an event for Swarovski, its about the fall look and I’m on a mini American tour for them. I’ve already been to Chicago and New York and next will be going to San Francisco and Dallas.
IC: Where does Miami stand in fashion?
GK: (Laughs) Miami’s fashion is quite interesting. The women here are very confident. There is a lot of skin here in Miami. But we’ll see. I think I’m going to see a lot of fashion tonight.
IC: What do you think of the store?
GK: The store’s beautiful. I’m a big fan of Swarovski. It’s so easy for me to come and talk about there great stuff as I’m a sucker for thing twinkly and sparkly.
IC:What are some of your favorite celebs to dress?
GK: I like the way Zoe Saldana puts herself together. Then there’s Emma Roberts who always looks really cool , too. Demi Moore is dressing very age-appropriate. She really is pretty hot. And even the crazies, well I don’t want to call them crazy, but the quirkier ones like Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. I just respect them for having their own point of view and their own unique takes on fashion. You know not necessarily conforming to the norm.
IC: What can we expect for the new season with the show:
GK: (laughs) I don’t know! ‘Fashion Police’ should be bigger and better. We’re on at 10:30 on E on Friday nights and we will see. There are talks about making some changes to it, but I can’t really talk about right now. Its all good and it will be great.
IC: What restaurants have you hit?
GK: Lets see we went to STK and Nobu last night. And we went to the Raleigh for lunch, I don’t know where should we go?
IC: Go out the door and take a right and see what smells good. There is a lot of Lincoln Road.
GK: (Laughs) You’re no help!
