Episode 36: Nicole Miller

Nicole Miller on Meeting Elizabeth Taylor & Launching a New Peach Fragrance



About the Episode

Nicole Miller is one of the most legendary names in fashion. She started out in the early ‘80s with runway shows that became the talk of the town, showcasing the biggest supermodels of the time: Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Tyra Banks. Nicole’s designs don’t just walk the runways — they’re worn by the likes of Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, and Cyndi Lauper, each piece telling its own story of elegance with a hint of rebellion. Alluring and distinctly memorable, her fragrances have carried on this sensibility for many years, and she has just released a new collection: a 4-piece set that is the perfect accessory for every moment.

In this episode, Nicole sits down with Marianne Mychaskiw, who runs communications at Scentbird. She talks about meeting Elizabeth Taylor, designing Barbie dolls in the '90s, and what makes “French girl beauty” special.
