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.

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.”

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.

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.

December 31, 2009

Two home shopping vendors, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and rapper-entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs, both made the New York Post’s list in its “A Decade of Trends” story Thursday.

Zoe, who does a fashion and accessory line for QVC, was lauded by the Post for building “a career on perfect taste, an eye for vintage and a knack for pulling fabulous gowns.” Zoe, who does “The Rachel Zoe Project” for Bravo, is pictured with client Nicole Richie.

Combs, who sold out his fragrances during is recent debut on HSN, won high praise from the Post. “By far, one of the greatest retail successes that doesn’t make us want to barf is Sean John — the label launched in the late ’90s by music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs,” the Post wrote.

The Post said that this “early entry in the celebrity clothing-line genre” has “staying power.”
