Donna Karan "loves shoulders" because they always look great.

The fashion designer has been helping people feel great for decades, creating flattering and beautiful clothes.

Now the creator of luxury label DKNY has revealed which part of the body she likes the most.

"The only place you never gain weight is on your shoulder," she explained to WWD

"It doesn't get wrinkly, it doesn't get fat. I love shoulders."

The 64-year-old paid a visit to her newly refurbished store on Bond Street, London, recently.

Karan is a big fan of laid-back exercise and explained her vision for the new-look shop, which has had its ground floor eatery replaced by a handbag space.

"Maybe we should do a yoga studio and cafe on the top floor? I miss the cafe," she pondered.

The coveted designer was born in the US and now resides in New York.

However, her career means she spends a lot of time travelling and exploring new places.

Karan expressed her love for England's capital city, quipping the iconic London Eye Ferris wheel was "better than a plane".

"I love the fact that you can see the sky in London; you can feel closed in in New York," she gushed.

"I do think it's time for London right now - I've seen it grow. It's such an inspirational city."
