The newest redundancy floating around on tongues across America is the phrase, “I have to say…”

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.
