We were delighted when award-winning performer and author Alan Cumming accepted our invitation to interview the outrageously versatile Isaac Mizrahi, fashion legend turned actor–director–TV host. Though we are certain their conversation will feature tales from the careers of both men, each a unique persona in his field, they will focus mainly on Mizrahi's second-act success in the entertainment industry. Some two decades after his autobiographical documentary Unzipped won him countless fans and a prize or two, Mizrahi has since hosted his eponymous TV show, is working on his third book, has directed two operas, and performs cabaret in venues as prestigious as Café Carlyle and Joe's Pub. Alan Cumming is a Tony Award–winning actor whose own highly versatile talents have landed him in films with everyone from Stanley Kubrick to the Spice Girls, onstage with Jay Z and Liza, as host of the Tony Awards, and even at the top of the New York Times Bestseller List for his memoir, Not My Father's Son.
