makeover/shopping. (Sometimes there's a bit of overlap. See: GOSSIP GIRL.)
Now that PROJECT RUNWAY is over, I need to fill the gap in category two. (I miss Tim Gunn already. I once walked past him on the Upper West Side. It remains my favorite celebrity citing ever.) (FTR, I totally called Anya's win. I think her clothes are gorgeous but I could never wear them. I would kill for a some of Victor's pieces.)
To help me survive my Tim withdrawl, I've added a few shows to my DVR rotation:
MAD FASHION: (Tuesday 10PM, Bravo) Chris March makes outrageous outfits for Housewives and Jennifer Coolidge types. There are wigs and headpieces and dresses one cannot sit down in. There's a drag queen. There are yards of glitter and sequins. Chris March laughs that laugh of his. It's half an hours of shiny, sparkly joy.
FASHION HUNTERS: (Tuesday 10:30PM, Bravo) The inner workings of a high-end consignment stop in NYC. I love staffer Karina who wants to buy everything before it gets out onto the floor. That would be me with her job. I just watched an episode featuring a home visit to peruse a podiatrist's designer shoe collection (that was certainly worth my than my house), and How to Spot an Authentic Chanel Bag 101.
PROJECT ACCESSORY: (Thursday 10PM, Lifetime) I missed the first episode, but there are designers making everything but clothing and Molly Sims dripping in statement jewelry, so I'm pretty pumped. Baubles, shoes and bags are the icing on the fashion cake (and, after all, what separates us from the animals).
Are you watching any of these, fellow shoppers? How would you review them?
P.S. You should all be watching FASHION POLICE. I'm a Joan Ranger. You can be a Joan Ranger, too.
