QVC Rips It With LA Red Carpet Party For Oscars

February 25, 2013

Props to QVC for all the press it got out of its red carpet Oscar weekend party in Beverly Hills.

We saw a bit of it live, when Joan Rivers was on. But E! Entertainment News Sunday aired clips of some of the top-name talent that showed up for the shindig.

Jennifer Hudson was there, as were a number of other high-profile QVC vendors, including Camila Alves (Matthew McConaughy’s bride) and Heidi Klum. And there were a mob of other A-list actresses, as well.

Best of all when E! aired its footage, it ran an onscreen bug that said that the clip was taken at QVC’s event.

QVC will return to the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills (where we once stayed when we were covering cable TV) for its “Red Carpet STYLE – Live from L.A.” broadcast next Friday, Feb. 22.

This will be the fourth consecutive year that QVC will be broadcasting live from the Left Coast, the network said Wednesday.

The cast of characters will include Nicole Richie and Lisa Rinna, in their second QVC red carpet gig, will introduce new apparel from their collections.

Also on hand will be Jennifer Hudson and celebrity-Angelina-Jolie-stylist Jen Rade, who is scheduled to make her QVC debut with the launch of Edge by Jen Rade.

Joan Rivers will be doing accessories while Lori Goldstein and Heidi Klum are also scheduled to present their clothing and jewelry designs.

The cosmetics offerings will include Stila, Drybar and Julep.

“We are heading back to L.A. this awards season for another unforgettable celebration,” QVC U.S. CEO Claire Watts said in a canned statement.

“In addition to showcasing new products, this year’s broadcast will highlight red carpet moments through unique content from industry insiders. We are sharing the evening with our global QVC partners, and hope to present an unparalleled experience that promises to engage our viewers and inspire customers with style and beauty offerings from our experts.”

Jill Martin will serve as the red carpet correspondent for this shindig. ELLE magazine’s Joe Zee and Goldstein will be giving styling tips, and stylist Cristina Ehrlich has done videos for the broadcast.

Additional segments will spotlight QVC celebrities sharing their personal experiences during awards seasons, both past and present.

QVC will be doing that social media thang, as well. Jeannie Mai will be using Instagram. And don’t forget Twitter: QVC said it will “showcase in-the-moment snapshots of the exclusive affair tagged with hashtag #QVCRedCarpet, creating QVC’s very own ‘Insta-Glam’ experience.”

QVC Vendor Nicole Richie Polishes Off A 19-Ounce Steak On Fashion’s Night Out

September 9, 2012

We have a couple of good blogs on the back burner, but just haven’t had time to write them. Sorry guys.

But here is a little behind-the-scenes info about QVC’s Fsshion’s Night Out, via the New York Daily News’s gossip column “Condidential” on Saturday.

The column reported that razor-thin Nicole Richie, who has a new clothing line on QVC, chowed down when she wasn’t on the air live Thursday from QVC’s Manhattan event in the Meatpacking District.

According to the News, when singer Jennifer Hudson was pitching her QVC clothing line Thursday, Richie hoofed it over to the legendary Old Homestead Steakhouse.

“We-Don’t-Know-Where-She-Puts-It” Richie ordered a “19-ounce bone-in filet,” the News reported. But before she could finish up her hunk of steer, QVC’s folks fetched her back to go on the air again.

“Later, our insider says, she ordered another filet, a platter of shrimp, a side of creamed spinach and a bowl of garlic mashed potatoes, all of which she polished off,” the News said.

That’s just a midnight snack for us.

According to, the home shopping network will be giving us a “fashion insider’s tour of New York’s distinctive shopping districts, from 5th Avenue to Fashion Avenue, Brooklyn to Broadway.” The crew will also be in the trendy Meatpacking District.

We’re doing Fashion’s Night Out in Montclair.

Singer Jennifer Hudson To Bow Fashion Line On QVC This Fall

June 27, 2012

We’re behind on this, but Oscar-winning singer Jennifer Hudson is coming to QVC this fall.

Hudson, who came to fame (and later fortune) when she was a finalist in 2002 on “American Idol,” is doing a women’s fashion line for QVC. It will debut in September. WWD broke the story.

“The line will be a variety of apparel designed for women of all sizes,” according to Hudson’s website.

She told WWD: “I feel like I represent every woman. I’ve been on both sides of the fence. I’ve been a big girl and now whatever this is, the average size, whatever you want to call it. But I wanted the clothes to be where any girl could wear it — no matter what size you are — and you could feel comfortable in it.”

Hudson slimmed down considerably since her “American Idol” stint, and looks fantastic as a spokeswoman for Weight Watcher’s.

She walked away with an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “Dream Girls.”
