Tomorrow night, while you're out enjoying sweet freebies, discounts, and stunning fashion at Chicago's FNO 2011, don't forget that our city will play host to one of fashion's most beloved, Brad Goreski. You can catch this tall, stylish drink of water at the 900 Shops event during Fashion's Night Out, but for a quick, R29-only chat with the man himself, read below. Welcome to Chi-Town, Brad, we're thrilled to have you!

What are you looking forward to most about FNO in Chicago?
"Meeting people and seeing more of the city...hopefully, I will get to do some shopping at the 900 Shops!"


What do you hate to see girls wear?

"The word 'hate' is a little too strong. I'm not a big fan of sweatsuits in public, unless you are on your way to or from the gym. This fascination with wearing pajamas on an airplane for a trip across the country is so strange to me. I understand if you are on a long-haul flight to Asia or Europe, but wearing your pajamas to go from LA to NYC is so unnecessary. Why not start your trip off right by wearing a cute outfit?"

Any new fashion phrases we need to be aware of?
"'Freaking out' is a big one: 'I'm freaking out for this week.' Also, 'gagging': 'I am gagging for this Louis Vuitton bag.' It's a good thing."

Which celeb (that you don't work with!) has the best style, in your opinion, and why? "I love Emma Stone and Zoe Saldana. I like how they serve high-fashion looks. You never know what they are going to turn out."
What advice to do you have for Chicago girls trying to stay warm and stylish at the same time? "The fall/winter runways were full of really great coats—all different shapes, lengths, and colors. I would invest in an amazing coat this season because it is really the article of clothing that people are going to see the most. Make a statement with it. Maybe try a bright color or a bold pattern à la Burberry."
