Zac Posen buys UES penthouse with a view for $3.5M


We wouldn’t have expected fashion designer Zac Posen to buy on the stuffy Upper East Side, but according to city records, the “Project Runway” judge is indeed the buyer of a duplex penthouse at 210 East 73rd Street.

To be fair, this particular penthouse has a lot of beautiful artistic details we could see the designer appreciating. The classic six home has two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, hand-painted ceilings, an iron staircase, a Chesney marble mantle, an 1,800-square-foot terrace, seven custom closets (we imagine Posen owns a lot of clothes) and really lovely turquoise wallpaper.

Posen made headlines earlier this year when he dressed Claire Danes in a glow-in-the-dark ball gown for the technology-themed Met Gala last May. He announced in October that he would be designing all of the flight attendants uniforms for Delta Airlines. He is a native New Yorker and has been a judge on “Project Runway” since 2012.
