It's like technology couture,
00:12

00:13
is that you told me to do this dress.
00:15
Let's be honest.
00:16
This dress turned out so beautiful
00:17
and I had no idea what to expect,
00:20
and it's just like a piece of art.
00:26
I'm free. I can drink in it.
00:32
[Olivier] Is it stressful
00:32
when you don't know what to expect?
00:34
Are you scared before?
00:35
[Joan] No, I'm not scared because I know it's you,
00:37
and I know we're like talking
00:38
and going back and forth so I trust you.

00:51
Remember when we got into that first room
00:54
and we were like okay let's get some champagne and
00:55

01:01
Oh sorry, I step on your feathers.
01:04
Sorry J-Lo.
01:05
I'm gonna be doing that to girls' faces. Like a mirror.
01:10
How's your selfie game gonna be that night.
01:12
Obviously don't smile.
01:13
I hate it when they ask why don't ever you you don't smile.
01:16
Smiling, it's so '96. Like who's smiling in 2016.
01:19
And first of all, your smiling from the inside people.
01:22
From the inside.
01:23
And you're sucking your cheek from the inside out.
01:26
So what would you be listening to
01:28
when you're getting ready for the Met.
01:29
I think I was listening The Life of Pablo. Kanye West.
01:32
I love it.
01:33
I love Wolves.
01:34
Wolves.
01:35
But I think, I think the one that really make me smile
01:38
