"Emmy is a fashion girl; it’s effortless. She doesn’t work with a stylist, and it’s a direct interaction," says the 43-year-old L.A.-based designer. Jokes Rossum: "She calls it an interaction. I call it stalking." The actress says the "beautiful nude-colored dress with beading" that she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party this year is her favorite.
The designer, who launched in 1996 with a bridal line (Reese Witherspoon, Britney Spears and Pink have worn her wedding designs), loves the actress’ style: “It’s not classically beautiful. There’s a twist. It’s believable; you know these looks exist in her closet.” Says Rossum: “They do, actually; I steal them."
