Get Carol Burnett’s Sequined Jacket On QVC

October 18, 2016

Want to have the same sequined jacket that comedian Carol Burnett is wearing on the cover of her new book? You can buy it at QVC.

Famed fashion designer Bob Mackie said last night on-air that Burnett is sporting one of his QVC creations on the book-jacket photo for “In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox.”

When Burnett was doing her hilarious hit comedy show, Mackie designed the costumes for her skits, we believe. This apparently included the famed drapes-snd-curtain-rod outfit for her “Gone With The Wind” takeoff, where she portrayed Scarlett O’Hara.

The “long-sleeve jewel neckline sequin jacket” sells for $73 on QVC.com and has an animal-print look.

Burnett is rocking it in teal, but it also comes in charcoal, olive, purple and bronze.

Here’s its description:

The stalk of the town. Style takes a turn for the fabulously feral in this jungle-inspired jacket from Bob Mackie. The already alluring animal print is adorned with shimmering sequins and complemented by an open front and elegant jewel neckline. The result is a look that will have admirers tracking your every move. From Bob Mackie. Features: sequined, animal print, long sleeves, open front, jewel neckline, hook-and-eye closure.

Miss Piggy, Joan Rivers Star On QVC’s Red Carpet L.A. Show

February 21, 2014

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.

Carson Kressley Brings His Queer Eye to QVC

September 30, 2009

Carson Kressley, of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame, was his usual incorrigible self on QVC Wednesday, as the network ended its “Designing Men” series. He did several shows, including one with a studio audience in West Chester. His mom and sister were in the house, witnesses as Kressley did makeovers of two women.

He can’t resist making jokes, which included an endless stream of quips and sexual innuendoes — with mom right there watching. For example, Kressley is offering a long shawl in his fall collection, and host Patti Reilly had him hold one end while she held the other.

“Let’s see how long it is,” Reilly said.

“Patty, I thought you were coming on to me,” Kressley shot back.

We guess you had to be there, but it sure cracked us up. Kressley also managed to squeeze in a plug in for his show on Lifetime, “How to Look Good Naked.”

This week QVC trotted out the male designers who do lines for the network, including not only Kressley but Dennis Basso, Bradley Bayou, Bob Mackie and Louis Dell’Olio.

We literally bumped into Kressley once while we walking on Park Avenue South. Now, he’s leaving the East Coast and heading back to Las Vegas, where he’s got a hot date with Cher.
