Read our Q&A with Michael and find out how he manages to look super fly, on and off-camera.
Q: Navid Shirazi, the character you play on the hit CW show 90210, comes from a very privileged background and his clothing (and his Ferrari!) reflects this. How is your personal style different/similar?
A: My personal style is much different. I tend to dress much more casual and relaxed. Navid was and is much more preppy and clean cut.
Q: It’s always such a treat to see what the students are going to wear on 90210. Do you get to work with the wardrobe department when it comes to Navid’s look?
A: Yes. Our main designer is Kime Buzzeli. She’s always looking out for Navid’s wardrobe. They tend to go a bit overboard with Navid. I looked at a pair of shorts they gave me season two, and the price tag read $500. I would never spend that kind of money on a pair of shorts. But they have expensive taste for Navid. I have to give it up to them, they do a great job though. When you want to take your wardrobe home, you know the stylist is doing a good job.
Q: Has your knowledge of fashion and designers increased since you joined the show? If yes, who is a designer that you follow?
A: The only two designers I follow are my brother J. Steger, and ALLSAINTS. Having a brother that’s a designer is a huge window into the fashion world. So much goes into a suit, a pair of jeans, etc. One never really understands the level of work crafted before something is made.
Q: Which female character’s style appeals to you the most and why?
A: I would say Ivy or Silver. They have that classic laid-back bohemian look. It’s very chill.
Q: If you could give one tip to guys who have no clue where to start when it comes to fashion, what would you say?
A: Don’t try too hard. Dress comfortably and simply.
