Supermodel Anne V on Why She Loves the Costello Tagliapietra Boys

At last night's launch party for Costello Tagliapietra's new, more affordable C&T collection, designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra were mobbed by fans and friends alike. In between perusing the beautifully-draped dresses, which you can learn more about here, I caught up with supermodel Anne V to discuss the everlasting appeal of those two cuddly suspender-clad gentlemen.

"I've known them for so many years, and they're one of those design duos that you love so dearly not just because they're incredibly talented, but because they're the sweetest guys in the world. They're actually known in the industry as the best hug-givers—they give the best hugs ever."

And while Anne has her pick of the litter in terms of the new C&T collection—she admitted she's already stocked up on a bunch of pieces for herself—she opted to wear a simple black dress to last night's party. "They do some many colors and patterns," she explained, "but I wanted to wear this one to show that they really can do the perfect little black dress. I mean, just look at this draping!"

And there's one more element of Costello and Tagliapietra's line that could have been put to good use at the celebration, where french fries, bottled beer and crabcakes were constantly circulating: "I love that you can eat while wearing their dresses and know that you're still going to look gorgeous."
