That’s really all we have to say after watching the promo clips for Alina Cho’s upcoming “Fashion Week: Backstage Pass,” in which she interviews everyone’s favorite candid and cat-obsessed fashion personality, Karl Lagerfeld.
]New York Fashion Week runways may lose the best legs in the business this season, if rumors are to be believed. Thanks to the alert eyes over at Fashin, there’s some Twitter rumbling that Karlie Kloss is skipping the season for a better opportunity.
Alina Cho, a hard-news reporter who’s bringing back fashion coverage at CNN (check out the profile on her in the New York Daily News–she’s the new Elsa Klensch!) tweeted (via @AlinaChoCNN) this nugget last night:
Karl Lagerfeld is many things, not the least of which is a smart business man. CNN‘s Alina Cho explored this side of the designer/photographer/director/perfumier, who’s shilled everything from luxury pens to washing machines. It’s for the upcoming show Fashion: Backstage Pass From Paris. In this preview clip, he discusses making Chanel relevant: You know, when Read more →
There are many things I love about fashion, but my favorite part of the industry and best part of this job is the chance to meet designers. I have such admiration for these people who create gorgeous things, and when I get to meet them I often turn into a 12-year-old meeting Justin Bieber. I’ve giggled. Very professional.
Often times the designers’ stories are better than any prepackaged reality shows out there. CNN’s Revealed aired today and featured Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Theirs is an amazing love story and success story set in the incomparable backdrops of Milan and Portofino, Italy.
CNN International sat down with Karl Lagerfeld in Shanghai when he was there showing his Chanel pre-fall collection. The full interview won’t air until December 23rd but they released a clip this morning. He doesn’t remember if his first collection was booed because “back then press was unimportant.” He also compares himself to a TV Read more →
If you haven’t had your fill of Fashion TV, haven’t been satisfied with copious model interviews and backstage videos of Fall 09 Fashion Month and the return of Blair Waldorf’s Monday night headbands wasn’t enough for you, don’t worry, the TV gods are on the lookout. This morning marked Carine Roitfeld‘s television debut, but since Read more →
“It’s a bit like for an actor. Do you want to go to Hollywood or do you want to stay here in Paris and do the cinema I like to do? I think I prefer to stay here in Paris.” – Carine Roitfeld, on why she would never take Anna’s job, to CNN.
Because there weren’t enough camera crews at Fashion Week already, CNN has decided to follow around Carine. Cinematically mirroring Anna Wintour and her own 60 Minutes bio, Carine’s being filmed for CNN’s Revealed, which should air starting March 18 (full schedule after the jump). We guess America really wants to know more about fashion’s most Read more →
In case you didn’t get enough of Diane Von Furstenberg in her Amex commercial, CNN has you covered. Tomorrow night, on Revealed, DVF will spill her soul about how she will be forever associated with the wrap dress, the Wonder Woman project and, if we’re lucky, secrets about secret CFDA projects. The super fun part Read more →
CNN reports some rather disconcerting information: General Growth Properties, the second largest mall operator in the country, may file for bankruptcy soon. GGP is responsible for the operation of around 200 malls in the US, including the Paramus Park Mall right outside of the city. If the company does end up tanking, then a.) another Read more →
