1. She doesn’t employ a stylist. (But we’ve heard that she uses Susan Joy for big events, so we’re not convinced. Although she does have a better argument than Blake.)
2. She’s got a new television show coming out.
Thrift America will air on PBS next summer. Created by Style.com special projects editor Maya Singer, the premise takes Chung and Singer across the country, where they troll for treasures at estate sales, consignment shops and other second-hand havens. The first episode will takes place during London Fashion Week, where Chung and Singer helped Pamela Love set up a pop-up shop at Browns Focus. (Some of you surely attended the event–maybe you’ll be in one of the scenes.)
We think Thrift America shows plenty of promise. The great thing about airing on PBS is that Singer will be able to maintain creative control. And Chung will reach an audience that may have dismissed her as a low-brow entertainer. (Aka older, wealthy women who could care less about MTV and the Arctic Monkeys.)
