The advent of Netflix, Hulu and of course the proliferation of shows on cable give us plenty of opportunity to see our best and brightest. It also gives those celebs, be they “Housewives,” playing a superhero or a sassy mom, or part of television competition- judge or contestant-plenty of opportunity to be seen in some interesting haute couture. And sometimes it is even because the person in question is selling a brand.
Here’s some of the latest hot news from T.V.-influenced fashion via stars of some shows.
Rachel Lindsay of The Bachelorette fame has linked herself with ThredUP (which calls itself the largest online consignment and thrift store) to sell clothes she wore when she was on the infamous couple hook-up reality show. Rachel will be selling her penguin pj’s and accessories like earrings. 10% of her sales go to the ACLU. Rachel’s wardrobe is the first in ThredUp’s “Shop Her Closest” new charity selling.
On this week’s America’s Got Talent Mel B treated viewers to as much of herself as possible. She wore a sheer Rocky Gathercole sheer body suit that made the blog blogosphere light up. Oh-so-tiny blue-and-silver jewel spots covered the Spice Girl in strategic spots.
Keeping with the trend of high-end haute couture married with low-bro styles, Bravo’s Out Mom Out once again rocked some wardrobe pieces that would give lifestyle wardrobe lovers pause. In the episode of the show just aired this week, writer/star/creator Jill Kargman’s character wore what seems to be becoming a signature leather harness over her shirt. Kargman has sported designer tees with smarmy saying and symbols, plenty of leather and in one case a design that was laser printed. One needs to check in from time to time on this show as Kargman puts the infamous array of housewives littering the network to shame with her sartorial flare.
As T.V. rages on, so will fashion.
