When Isaac Mizrahi was in the red chair he talked about the scandal he caused when he touched Scarlett Johansson's breast, through her dress, on the red carpet of the 63rd Golden Globes in 2006.
The openly gay fashion designer, who was on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight to promote his new Shopping Channel line Isaac Mizarahi Live!, explained that he didn't have any lurid intent.
"This wasn't nasty," said Mizrahi. "This was like, 'Are you wearing a bra? Are you wearing an underwire bra?' And she was like, 'Oh well.'
"I was like, 'Well, wait a minute, I just wanna...' [makes reaching motion]. And then she (went) 'Oh my God!' and it was like this crazy thing. It was on the cover of, like, this newspaper in India. In fittings I do that all the time. It's just a natural response. It's like a doctor going 'OK, cough.'
"That was as natural for me as shaking someone's hand... and it wasn't. In retrospect I looked at it and went, 'Ew, that's true.' And when it happened I was so scared and I didn't go, 'Hey, wait a minute. I was just shaking her hand.' I didn't say anything. I was like, 'OK, I'm not going to say anything. Maybe it'll go away.'
"I don't know. I thought it was a weird, strange confluence of mistakes."
