In addition to dressing Fonda, Maxwell gushed over the time he styled Michelle Obama for the White House state supper in 2016.
“This was probably one of the most defining moments in my personal life…,” he shared. “Coming from a small town, being an American boy, dressing The First Lady, it was just a total American Dream.”
At the time, the Becoming author put on a strapless ivory dress that was both sophisticated and show-stopping.
Of course, Maxwell could not discuss his extensive profession without applauding his regular partner, Lady Gaga. He kept in mind just how much she assisted him throughout his very first runway program, which happened at the Mr. Chow dining establishment.
“I remember I had never done a show before, so I didn’t really realize how many pairs of shoes we really needed,” he started. “And I didn’t get enough shoes, and the day of the show, while setting up the lighting, Gaga got in a car and drove to every store in New York City buying extra pairs of shoes to have.”
“It’s so funny looking back then how things have changed, but that’s one of my favorite life memories,” he included.
