This sounds vaguely familiar, but we are losing track of the celebs that are doing collections for home shopping networks.
In any event, Evine Live put out a press release Wednesday saying that Vanessa Williams was bringing a fashion line, V. by Vanessa Williams, to the network March 19.
Williams, of course, built a great career in music, TV (loved her on “The Good Wife”) and on Broadway despite the scandal that ended her brief stint as Miss America.
“America has grown to love Vanessa through her many accomplishments in music and on television and on stage but few know about her passion for fashion,” Russell Nuce, Evine Live’s Chief Strategy Officer, said in a canned statement.
“This collection which will be available only on Evine Live will offer our viewers yet another choice to fulfill their fashion needs. We are excited to welcome Vanessa to the Evine Live family and add her new line to our ever-expanding assortment of ‘brands with fans.'”
And Williams had her own canned comment.
“I’m thrilled to introduce Evine Live’s viewers to my new fashion collection,” she said. “Fashion has always been a huge part of my life, from being a model and former Miss America, to my career as a singer and an actress, and of course, being a mom. My line is a perfect reflection of what I love to wear the most — pieces that feature a combination of timeless, flowing silhouettes, feminine patterns and sultry fabrics.”
V. by Vanessa Williams includes jackets, dresses, tops and bottoms and feature soft colors.
Here is the boilerplate on her:
Vanessa Williams is one of the most respected and multi-faceted performers in the entertainment industry today.
Her critically acclaimed work in film, television, recordings and the Broadway stage has been recognized by every major industry award affiliation including four Emmy nominations, 17 Grammy nominations (of which 11 were for her individually), a Tony nomination, three SAG award nominations, seven NAACP Image Awards, three Satellite Awards and ultimately a Golden Globe, Grammy and an Oscar for Best Original Song for her platinum single “Colors of the Wind,” from the Disney film “Pocahontas.”
She also achieved a career pinnacle with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007.
