HIS NEW GET
Pre-Globes, Harris got the call to start working with Mirren, and he ended up dressing her for the Golden Globes, the Palm Springs International Film Festival and her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. “My goal was to steer her into strong colors and more modern designs,” says Harris, who put the star in an elegant yet edgy black-and-gold Badgley Mischka gown and a striking red Escada number. Mission accomplished.
HIS TOP LOOK
Liu in Atelier Versace at the Primetime Emmy Awards. “It’s the only time I’ve sent an actress out with needle-nose pliers and wire clippers in addition to Top Stick and safety pins in her emergency kit,” says Harris of the silver chain mail gown.
HIS SECRET WEAPON
Belts. “I probably have more than 200 belts that I’ve amassed over the years,” says Harris, who met longtime clients Liu and Krakowski when he worked as a wardrobe shopper for Ally McBeal. “Who doesn’t want a little nip at the waist?”
