Retro ‘Mad Men’ Fashion Coming To QVC

July 13, 2010

We met her on the set of “Mad Men” in LA, and Emmy-nominated costumer designer Janie Bryant is bringing a clothing line to QVC, according to AOL.

Thanks for the heads up, you dunces in West Chester. We had to find out about this news relating to one of our favorite, and Emmy-winning, TV shows from our sister Karen today.

Bryant will debut her line in September, which will have that Birdy and Joan 1960’s look.

“The Mod line will appeal to lovers of vintage fashion with its boleros, capelets and Jackie Kennedy-esque pillbox hats,” AOl said..

“Mad Men” will premiere its fourth season on AMC July 25.

We met Bryant during the summer Television Critics Association press tour two years ago, when AMC took the press to the show’s set in downtown LA. All the cast was there. We stalked Jon Hamm, who is not only good looking but charming and funny. He’s a Pisces.

It’s ‘Hot In Hollywood’ For HSN Vendor Laurie Feltheimer’s Husband, As He Faces Hostile Bid At Lionsgate From Carl Icahn

February 17, 2010

Laurie Feltheimer does a line of clothing and accessories called Hot in Hollywood for HSN. And things are indeed getting hot in Hollywood (well, technically, Santa Monica) for her husband Jon Feltheimer, who is CEO of Lionsgate Entertainment, the indie studio that produces shows like AMC’s “Mad Men” and movies like “Precious.”

Carl Icahn — the man that some call an “activist investor” and others call a pain in the butt — has made a hostile bid to increase his stake in Lionsgate. Icahn has been breathing down Jon Feltheimer’s neck since last year, when the billionaire investor griped about the acquisitions Lionsgate was making.

Lionsgate purchased TV Guide Network, and is now in looking to buy Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Miramax Films.

We’ll spare you the boring financial details, but the bottom line is if Icahn succeeds in increaseing his Lionsgate stake to 29.9 percent, he would become its largest shareholder. As such, Ichan would be in a position to potentially oust Lionsgate’s current management or look to merge or sell the studio.

We interviewed “Felt,” as Jon Feltheimer is called, last year, and he seemed like a savvy guy. We wish him luck in his continuing saga with Icahn.

These are hot

Laurie Feltheimer, meanwhile, will be at HSN in Florida Friday with shows for her Hot in Hollywood line.

Dare we say it, but we spotted a motorcycle peep-toe bootie in gray that we really like, for $60.

Maybe Jon should send a couple of pairs of these over to Icahn.

Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine Spotlights Jewelry, A Joan Rivers Purse And Laurie Feltheimer Shoes From QVC, HSN And ShopNBC

January 19, 2010

The February issue of Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine features four items fom QVC, HSN and ShopNBC in its “Great Buys Under $50” feature. The theme of the piece is great buys that are red.

The article, on page 96, cites two pieces from HSN. One is a pair of platform heels from Hot in Hollywood, the line done by Laurie Feltheimer, the wife of Lionsgate chief Jon Feltheimer. Lionsgate produces TV shows such as AMC’s great “Mad Men” and Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” The shoes go for $49.

The second HSN item is a $35 brooch from HSN’s V by Eva jewelry line.

The magazine also spotlights a $40 croc-patterned clutch purse from Joan River’s QVC collection.

Finally, O Magazine cites a Waltham bangle watch that ShopNBC sells.

The good news for shoppers is that the magazine says the watch is $32. But ShopNBC has it on clearance now, and it’s been reduced to only $20.

Oprah Winfrey And Home Shopping? Our Connection Is The Wife of Lionsgate’s Chief Jon Feltheimer, With Her HSN ‘Hot In Hollywood’ Line

November 8, 2009

We were trying to find a way to get Oprah Winfrey’s name into our blog, and we finally got it Sunday.

Laurie Feltheimer, who does the “Hot in Hollywood” line of clothes and accessories for HSN, did a bit of name-dropping during her shows. She was talking about the $50 skinny jeans she was selling.

“My husband has a new movie out,” Feltheimer said. “It’s called ‘Precious.'”

She is married to a gentleman we have interviewed, Jon Feltheimer, who is the head of the Lionsgate movie and TV studio.

Laurie said that “Lady O” was at the recent red-carpet premiere of “Precious.” Of course, she was referring to Winfrey, who is executive producer of the critically acclaimed movie. Winfrey wore skinny jeans to the event, according to Laurie.

“I was looking at her, and she looked so good,” Laurie said of Winfrey.

Laurie’s husband’s studio Lionsgate also produces the Emmy-winning “Mad Men,” which airs on AMC. The “Mad Men” season finale is Sunday night, and we can’t wait. Don Draper has had a rough couple of weeks, hasn’t he?
