American designer Zac Posen has clothed Naomi Watts, Glenn Close and Reese Witherspoon, to name a few. On tonight's Extra Virgin at 9pm ET, he'll bestow his fashion finesse onto Debi Mazar and her daughter Giulia when they go to his studio for a behind-the-scenes tour and dress fitting. Then she'll pay him back with fresh Peach Bellinis, Linguine with Red Snapper (photo after the jump) and Smoked Trout Salad that also has something interesting going on with dressing. For Debi, the correlation between food and fashion has always been two-fold. Firstly, she's deeply passionate about both. Furthermore, her love of food has caused her dress size to fluctuate over the years, forcing her granting her the opportunity to buy more and more outfits. Zac thinks food and fashion are even more closely stitched. He says:

"Food and fashion have everything in common. They're sensory. They're emotional. It's creative. It's result.

What you put in your body shows on the outside of your body. What you wear comes into your soul and comes out that way."

A new Extra Virgin premieres at 9pm ET. Come for the insider look at a fashion maven's workshop, stay for fresh Tuscan food like red snapper linguine.
