Foremost user of this annoying preface is the “internationally renowned” fashion designer star of Bravo’s “Project Runway”: Michael Kors.
“Christian, I have to say, you are the most theatrical one on this stage”
“I have to say….. I’m not a fan of this type of pleating.”
“I have to say…..I’m pleased that you took our advice.”
“I have to say….. that I’m getting tired of Rami’s draping.”
If language is a metaphor for fashion, then Kors speaks like a denim shirt worn with denim jeans.
