Zac Posen Buys Penthouse
We wouldn’t have expected fashion designer Zac Posen to buy on the stuffy Upper East Side, but according to city records, the “Project Runway” judge is indeed the buyer of a duplex penthouse at 210 East 73rd Street.
To be fair, this particular penthouse has a lot of beautiful artistic details we could see the designer appreciating. The classic six home has two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, hand-painted ceilings, an iron staircase, a Chesney marble mantle, an 1,800-square-foot terrace, seven custom closets (we imagine Posen owns a lot of clothes) and really lovely turquoise wallpaper.
Posen made headlines earlier this year when he dressed Claire Danes in a glow-in-the-dark ball gown for the technology-themed Met Gala last May. He announced in October that he would be designing all of the flight attendants uniforms for Delta Airlines. He is a native New Yorker and has been a judge on “Project Runway” since 2012.
