QVC is heading out to the Left Coast for the fifth consecutive year to broadcast for the awards season with “Red Carpet Style — Live from L.A.” Miss Piggy and Lisa Rinna will be among those on hand (aren’t they the same person?).
The three-hour program will air next Friday from 9 p.m. to midnight, televising from the Wetherly Gardens at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills.
For this shindig QVC jewelry vendor and E! Network’s “Fashion Police” host Joan Rivers will be on the carpet with designers Lori Goldstein, Dennis Basso, Mark Zunino, Bob Mackie and Isaac Mizrahi.
Nicole Richie and Rinna, along with celebrity stylist Jen Rade, will introduce new items as well.
Additionally, as part of QVC’s collaboration with Lifetime’s “Project Runway All Stars,” Season 3 winner Seth Aaron Henderson will join the lineup at this star-fest. Henderson will present two new styles from his QVC collection, which had three sellouts in its January debut.
The program will mark the debut of Styled by Joe Zee, a collection from ELLE magazine Creator Director Joe Zee.
Oy vey! Miss Piggy – star of “Muppets Most Wanted” – will be showing off her Haute Tote, the VIP gift bag she created for the event. A consumer version of the bag will also be available for purchase on QVC.com.
But wait — there’s more, much much more.
JAI John Hardy will be presenting new croco-textured jewelry styles, and there will be diamond pieces from Michael Beaudry and Bronzo Italia designs.
On the beauty front, QVC will have Edward Bess, bareMinerals, Kate Somerville and Sarah Potempa.
“We have really enjoyed seeing the evolution of this annual event and are very excited to invite our viewers to experience this year’s broadcast,” QVC U.S. CEO Claire Watts said in a canned statement. “We’re proud to collaborate with such talented designers and noteworthy brands to offer exciting products that were created especially for this red carpet event.”
Rivers’ cohort on “Fashion Police,” George Kotsiopoulos, will serve as the QVC red carpet correspondent, interviewing celebrities as they arrive and encouraging guests to share pictures using #QVCRedCarpet.
Highlights of those images will be displayed throughout the gardens via the DELLInstaGallery, which consists of multiple gallery-style walls featuring digital screens for a unique social sharing experience. Finally, the InstaGlam Suite powered by HALO, a leader in portable power, will be a hub for social networking within the event and will be hosted by fashion personality and television host Jeannie Mai.
