When a heatwave overtook New York City last week, we all fled home to luxuriate in our air conditioners and catch up on some television. It was then, pint of Talenti gelato in hand, we had this revelation: there’s a whole lotta look going on on TV these days. Even in the quiet months without Mad Men, small screen stylists are putting in work. Each Monday, we’ll look at the ensembles that elevated a character, stole a scene, or just made us want to turn off the tube and go shopping.
We love a really well done spoof, and that’s exactly what we’re getting with Vogue Italia’s latest video. In it, some of our favorite supermodels dress up in some of our favorite spring clothes and come down a plexiglass runway as if they were on some kind of home shopping channel.
Ever since the demise of The City we’ve been jonesing for our Joe Zee TV fix, which is why we’ve been eagerly awaiting his new show “All On The Line”, which is set to air this spring on the Sundance Channel. Thankfully, Zee posted a preview of the show, which follows the Elle creative director as he works with struggling designers to revamp — and monetize — their lines.
While we’re still mourning the death of Kelly Cutrone‘s MTV reality show Kell on Earth, we’ve also spent the last few months with an eye on her Twitter feed to see what else the Mama Wolf has up her sleeve. She’s announced plans for a “scripted” show, hinted at a talk show, and, as of last night, revealed that she’s joining Dr. Phil on his show. Wait, what?
Until VH1 gets the rights to product a “Behind the Music” special on Lady Gaga, her fans have to do their own research to uncover the Mother Monster’s history. And thanks to the intrepid hunters/rabid fans of Gaga’s at Starcasm, we have photos and video of a small role the lady played on “The Sopranos.”
Rag on her shoes though we might, we’ve always thought Alexa Chung was a lovely and talented young woman. But more than a few people have accused her of having an eating disorder, and the model, designer and TV personality is sick and tired of hearing it.
Somewhere at the intersection of our undying love of fashion and our intense love of super delicious food, there’s a fantasy that involves sitting down over a bowl of hearty soup with Andre Leon Talley and Martha Stewart. Yesterday, it (almost) came true.
Half of Lauren Conrad‘s life has been chronicled on TV, but she didn’t really have much input in Laguna Beach or The Hills. So when it came time to make arrangements for her new show on MTV, Conrad made sure she’d be in control.
In a business that prides itself on changing every three seconds, it’s a little difficult for young rung climbers like us to believe that there are people in the fashion industry who have been loved and respected longer than we’ve been alive. And Jeanne Beker (Canada’s way cooler answer to Elsa Klensch), who started Fashion Television in 1985, has been in the game — and has been running the game — for 25 years.
We’ve been paying extra close attention to Martha Stewart and all her fabulousness since she started interviewing fashion people on her show earlier this summer. So when we found out that on the eve of her television empire’s move to the Hallmark Channel she’d answer a few questions from reporters around the country on a conference call, we cleared our schedules and prepared to dial in.
Ever since Martha Stewart started interviewing fashion people on her show, we’ve been keeping tabs on her work in the industry. We didn’t think it could get much better than her glamorous modeling gig with Chanel, but we might have made that call a little too early.
Lifetime has decided to feed our insatiable appetite for more Project Runway and Heidi Klum-related television awesomeness with two new spin-off series.
In case you missed it, last night’s episode of Glee was the usual mix of snappy one-liners and catchy musical numbers — plus a teenage identity crisis or two. And while we relished in all the perfectly harmonized theatrics, it was Kurt Hummel’s angry rendition of “Roses Turn” (from the musical Gypsy) that had our arm hairs standing on end.
Andre Leon Talley made his America’s Next Top Model debut last night and, as one might have suspected, it was wonderful. After the jump we’ve got a video montage chronicling every fabulous turn of phrase and a bonus clip of models falling. Enjoy!
Lucky for those of us who count watching the Newlyweds on DVD as a Friday night activity, Jessica Simpsons recently decided to embark on an “around the world in 80 treatments” adventure — cameras in tow — for her new VH1 reality series, The Price of Beauty.
