    All I ask is that people say Ralph Lauren (like Lauren Hutton) and NOT Loren (like Sophia Loren).

    As well as Donna Karan (like the name Karen) not
    "Ka-RANNE.

    Ralph's real name is Lifshitz and Donna's real name is Faske.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I still dont know how to say the Behrnaz Saraphour's (I know I mangled the spelling) name... I usually just mumble it to get by if I'm talking fashion with some big city person.

    Lots of them are really easier to pronounce when you're French

    Kind of difficult to explain ... heeeem ...

    First syllable "Thi", you say it heem, like in Tweety for instance
    Then the "e", you say it like in "grey"
    And finally the "rry", it's like in "Rihanna" (sorry, 1st thing that came to my mind )

    Hope that helps you

    I can't remember which celebutard it was that asked for George Adasda, but that still makes me chuckle!!
