HSN’s Good Deed: Designer Ornaments For St. Jude

October 22, 2010

Jay King's ornament

We think HSN’s Designer Ornament event is a pretty neat idea, and all for a good cause.

The No. 2 home shopping network asked a bunch of its vendors — 73 total — to each design a Christmas tree decoration for its HSN 2010 Designer Ornament Collection. The ornaments, which HSN has been selling on-air for the past two days, range in price from $20 to $40.

So Susan Lucci, Diane Gilman, Emeril Lagasse, Jay King, Mary J. Blige, Martha Sewart, Jennifer Stallone, Twiggy and Gwen Stefani were among the HSN vendors who designed ornaments for the collection.

Twiggy's version

The sale of the ornaments is supporting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a pediatric research and treatment center devoted solely to finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses.

In fact, 100 percent of the profits, no less than 30 percent of the purchase price of each ornament, will be donated to St. Jude.

We particularly liked Twiggy’s Union Jack version, King’s white and turquoise ornament, Stallone’s cute Santa and Emeril’s purple turnip.

InStyle Magazine Spotlights Necklace From HSN’s Ranjana Khan Line

November 26, 2009

The December issue of InStyle magazine, which has Taylor Swift on the cover, features a piece of HSN jewelry. But the necklace is already on Wait List.

The $250 crystal and silk ribbon necklace is from HSN’s RK by Ranjana Khan line. There is a picture of it in the “Try One!” feature on Page 197 of InStyle.

Interestingly enough, that same InStyle issue also has a “Beauty Talk” Q&A with No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani.

In it, there is a photo of Stefan’s new Snow Bunny Harajuku Lovers perfumes. That collection of five eau de toilette dolls was a Today’s Special on HSN earlier this week.

But in InStyle, it just says that the Harajuku Snow Bunny collection can be purchased at Sephora.com, no mention of HSN.

Singer And Style Icon Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Perfumes Will Be On HSN, But Apparently She Won’t

Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Perfumes

Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku perfume will be HSN’s Today’s Special Tuesday, but it doesn’t look like No Doubt’s lead singer will be on the air promoting it. That stinks.

If a celebrity is doing a line for a home shopping channel, using their star power to try and drive sales, then we think he or she should actually show up at the venue.

But Stefani is not listed on HSN’s online program guide for midnight tonight, when the Today’s Specials debut. But Stefani, the trend-setting blonde from Orange County, did do a video clip on her perfume for HSN’s Web site.

Here’s what HSN’s Web site says about the Japanese Harajuku dolls that the perfume comes in.

“Express your individuality with a selection of eau de toilette sprays inspired by Gwen Stefani’s love of the outrageous, eye-catching street scene of the Harajuku shopping district in Tokyo,” the site says. “Packaged in adorable doll decanters, each of the fragrances in this chic collection corresponds to the personality of a Harajuku Girl. Choose from Love, Lil’ Angel, Music, Baby and G and find a scent that fits your style.”
