Rachel Zoe doesn't stop. Between styling celebrities and having her own reality show, Zoe found time to create a line of stylish accessories. Details are under wraps but we do know that the collection will be sold on QVC launching sometime after her Fashion Week circuit in September and October. It's nonstop action from the woman who told us, "My priority is always going to be my job." Keep on, keepin' on . . .
QVC is taking a new approach to fast fashion at New York Fashion Week. The popular home shopping network will be showing its new Spring lines at Bryant Park on Feb. 14 and whereas other designers' lines won't be available until months later, QVC will be offering its collections for sale immediately. That means shoppers can have their runway looks delivered to them in about two days. Awesome.
For the runway show, QVC will be highlighting some of its popular existing brands such as Simply. by Project Runway winner Chloe Dao Logo and M by Marc Bouwer along with new designers, such as A List by Alvin Valley and Logo by Lori Goldstein, seen left. QVC will also feature a special two-hour selling portion of the pieces from the runway on TV. Affordable fast fashion on the runway? Yes, please.
Want a piece of inauguration pie, but can't make it to DC this month? Home shopping network QVC is headed to Washington for Barack Obama's inauguration and will be hawking all the coins, stamps, jewelry, and even a small handbag to Obama fanatics live from the heart of the action.
The network has sold more than 100,000 items related to Obama's election and says it sees the inauguration as an opportunity to reach beyond the usual political collectibles crowd.
QVC will air portions of the parade and conduct interviews with the crowd, then put on a special show on the night of inauguration from the Creative Coalition's inaugural ball in an attempt to sell items like this commeorative Obama throw. What I want to know is who is going to be watching QVC on inauguration night?
QVC hosts can't catch a break. It seems that danger in the form of bloopers awaits them at every turn. Take this guy. He's trying to sell a big-screen television. But the television is interested in other kinds of big things. Watch to find out what I'm talking about . . .
OMG. This video is unnerving. As the doll for sale stares blankly up at the ceiling, a nervous Mike Rowe makes small talk with a stalkerish, lonely caller who seems to live for QVC. Mike must be sooo glad he got the hell out of this job and into roles in Hollywood. Wowsers. Lee, please hide your credit card, get out of the house, and see your friends and family! QVC is not your friend.
I'm racking my brain to remember what this guy went on to do (what, with his smarmy charm you think he stayed on QVC?!), but he's now a bona fide actor. He does this great free association number about how hot that lava lamp is cuz it's filled with lava (yuk yuk), and that in addition to being a beautiful piece for your home, you can fuse your fingers together to form a web. Tee hee. His future success was well-deserved.
Harold the QVC salesman is so sure about this ladder that even though it begins to buckle and loosen, he climbs on it anyway. You can tell the co-host looks a little skeptical, but Harold is gung-ho all the way to the bitter end — when his face meets the floor. Now that's salesmanship!
Paula might want to find another spokesperson for her QVC jewelry line. She can't string a sentence together to save her life. When she's not hiding behind a bouquet of flowers, she's exclaiming non sequiturs like, "It's my anniversary!" My favorite line? When she tries to explain that you can wear a necklace "around in the jean . . . into the, area" and finally the other QVC host says, "Belt loop." Wow.
Here's what she has on:
- Ivory Cami:Frenchi
- Poncho: Dialogue
- Jeans: Hurley
- Sandals: Jeffrey Campbell
- Handbag: Urban Outfitters
- Earrings: QVC
- Necklaces: Vintage and All The Rage
- Ring: Urban Outfitters
