I'm counting down the days 'til Nov. 1, the debut of MTV's new show, StyL'D (watch the trailer for the plot). In the meantime, here's another clip to get us pumped. Senior stylist Julie and junior stylist Janna meet to discuss an upcoming magazine shoot for hottie actor and former Paris Hilton flame Josh Henderson. Julie tells Janna she's trying her out, to see what she's got. But little did she know there would be a huge wrench, AKA Brett, to mess up her plans. Somebody's in trouble . . .
We're pretty pumped about our exclusive trailer for MTV's new fashion show, StyL'D. It stars one of our favorite stylists, Jennifer Rade, along with wannabes competing for a position at the illustrious Margaret Maldonado styling agency in LA. The trailer features the young prodigies working hard at various fashion shoots with a smattering of Hollywood stars such as Nicole Richie, Ashley Tisdale, and Kim Kardashian. Of course, it wouldn't be an MTV show without a side serving of drama. The show doesn't debut until Nov.1, but for now, satiate your hunger with our exclusive trailer.
A while back, I interviewed Angelina Jolie's stylist Jennifer Rade. I recently ran into her again at a Marciano event, and she had lots more to say about "Angie." Jen had just flown in from NYC, where she worked with Angelina on her Changeling red carpet look. She and the actress dreamed up the custom-made Versace LBD together. So why did Angelina play it safe? Jen explained that while most people only have a strong eye, a strong jawline, or a strong lip, Angelina has them all.
Therefore, she wears minimal, classic clothing that lets her features shine. Makes sense. Jen has suggested frillier frocks to her client, but to no avail. She even pulled a colorful cocktail dress from the closest rack and we agreed it would be too busy for Angelina. Now if only the actress had been there to put in her two cents!
Longtime stylist Jennifer Rade calls herself the Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, and I'll add to that the busiest stylist working today. I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer a few years back at a Gap Bra Bar event for which she was the spokesperson. I recall the sassy stylist referring to Angelina Jolie, whom she works with closely, simply as Angie. In addition, she's styled music videos (Avril Lavigne, Marilyn Manson, Pink) and commercials, the most recent one being the Jovovich-Hawk for Target one. Jen took a few minutes out of her hectic day to chat with Fab about Angie, her style icons, and what every girl should carry in their purse.
What are your three favorite Angelina Jolie outfits that you've styled?
I think Oscars from 2004 (the cream Marc Bouwer), Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere (the leather Versace), and Ocean's 13 premiere in Cannes (yellow Peter Dundas for Ungaro).
If your house was burning down and you only had time to save one clothing item, what would it be and why?
Tough question. I would probably try to grab my great grandmother's purses since they've been around so long. Really, I would save nothing other than myself, my husband, and our dogs, because clothing is replaceable.
