I will always admire his slinky, fluid dresses...they've influenced me tremendously. He really managed to stand out in an era of countless American designers.

There's a fantastic little feature on Style.com about his fans.

"The Halstonettes"

Quote:
"You're only as good as the people you dress," Halston once said, and no one took that advice to heart more than the iconic seventies designer himself. Bianca Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Jackie Kennedy, and Elizabeth Taylor were all fans of his sleek gowns and breezy caftans, often appearing arm in arm with the man responsible for their outfits. His original models—Karen Bjornson, Pat Cleveland, and Anjelica Huston among them—were so loyal that André Leon Talley devised a moniker for them, the Halstonettes, creating an official fan club for the designer born Roy Halston Frowick in Des Moines.

The languid jet-set glamour of Halston's designs—his clothes were perfect for poolside lounging or dancing at Studio 54—has long since become part of the fashion lexicon, and the latest revival is imminent. Marc Jacobs followed the clingy jersey shirtdresses and slim jumpsuits he showed for Fall with feather-light tunics for Resort; Bob Colacello's new book of late-seventies/early-eighties snapshots, Out, is set to reintroduce many of the era's key players to a new generation of club kids; and, last but not least, of course, there is the Weinstein Company's recent acquisition of the Halston label itself. They may not allow guests to enter on white horses at The Box, but the designer's brand of seventies glam lives on.

^^ Thank you so much for this!! I would love for the younger designers and club kids to be exposed to him more- his work and sense of personal style were amazing!! I often hit the circuit in NY back in the day with a deep tan, Guicci loafers and a turtleneck just because that was how he would have worked the scene!!!

Thanks everyone for all the great pics and videos!! I had to laugh seeing the Mike Douglas interview- He had to have been the the most stereotypical fashion designer ever!! I mean he makes Issac look like a Marine Drill Sargent!! If you were casting a foppish designer for a movie, he would be the one!!!
