There were only a couple of tidbits about the HSN stuff. The story notes that the HSN collection has 15 pieces and a tote, and that during the interview Thomas was wearing clothes from her line.
Those included a “form-fitting” black sweater and black jersey pants, according to The Times. Thomas “her figure still girlish, made the outfit look wonderful,” The Times wrote.

One point we thought was interesting was that the clothes Thomas wore on “That Girl” represented “the uniform of the ’60s youthquake — graphic, eye-popping designs from Andre Courreges and Mary Quant — to be followed by the more bohemian accouterments of the early ’70s, like the styles of Halston, Giorgio di Sant’ Angelo and Yves St. Laurent<' The Timed wrote.
