But now it's his work that's wooing the ladies.

He counts Michelle Williams and Jennifer Hudson among his fans and has his own unisex fragrance, MajK. But what Knight is most excited about is the Two2—a signature dress unveiled at New York Fashion Week in September. "It's for me what the wrap dress is for Diane von Furstenberg," he says. The best part: The versatile frock will cost less than $100.
