Michael Kors Reveals His 7 Muses
A longtime Michael Kors model and muse, she stars in the Sexy Ruby fragrance campaign, and it's not just on account of her looks. "Yes, Edita is very beautiful, but she also has a real power to her gaze," says Kors. "As she looks into the facets of the bottle, it takes her on a trip—because isn't that what you want a fragrance to do?"

“Early on, I saw different women in my family expressing themselves through fashion and beauty. My mom couldn’t be simple, sporty, or understated enough: She’s a ponytail. She’s a flat shoe. My grandmother was the opposite, all about wigs, lashes, heels, and jewelry. She wore two scents, Arpège and Joy.”

“What I think is sexy in the modern sense is women who have incredibly busy lives and do a lot of different things but somehow make it look effortless,” says Kors, who lists Beyoncé, Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Lopez, and Michelle Obama as examples. “They don’t look the same, they don’t have the same sense of style—but they all have a sense of self.”
