O Magazine gives props to HSN and QVC for attracting red-carpet designers such as Badgley Mischka

Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine in February not only features items from the three major home shopping networks, it also lauds QVC and HSN as among the “100 Things That Are Getting Better.”

We just finished reading the magazine, and No. 47 on the list is “TV Shopping.” Then Oprah’s mag tell readers what we have been saying all along.

“The onetime insomnia cures HSN and QVC have become stylish, nicely priced boutiques for the likes of Badgley Mischka, Naeem Khan, Isaac Mizrahi and Rachel Zoe,” O Magazine says on page 173.

In the front of the magazine, the feature “Great Buys Under $50” spotlights four items from HSN, QVC and ShopNBC. We blogged about that yesterday.

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.

O Magazine Features Joan Rivers’ QVC Trenchcoat And Molly Sims’ HSN Jewelry

November 20, 2009

Oprah Winfrey’s magazine O shows a lot of love for home shopping in its December issue.

First, O did a small story on Joan Rivers, who has been selling jewelry on QVC for 19 years. The Q-and-A with Rivers about her QVC line was written by Adam Glassman, O’s creative director. He wins our admiration by writing “TV shopping is my number one guilty pleasure.”

Thanks for coming out of the closet with us, Adam!

In O, Rivers is quoted as saying she went to QVC when “nobody except dead celebrities was doing merchandise on TV.”

The magazine has a photo of a leopard-print trenchcoat that’s part of Rivers’ QVC line.

Molly Sims

A few pages later, two HSN jewelry vendors were featured in Winfrey’s magazine.

Actress Molly Sims, during the recent premiere of her Grayce jewelry on HSN, mentioned that one of her pieces was in O. Her asymmetrical ring, at $40, was part of a feature headlined “Great Buys Under $50.”

There was another HSN piece in that article: $45 hoop earrings with rhinestones from Glow by Sheila Faji.
