An “it” girl of the 1960’s, Tiel’s signature dresses have been sold exclusively in Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus for the past thirty years and worn by everyone from Elizabeth Taylor, to Goldie Hawn, Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian. From flirty tiered dresses and long maxi dresses perfect for spring and summer, flattering jersey wrap dresses and the ever-popular color block dress.

The dress event will also spotlight styles by American Glamour Badgley Mischka and Liz Lang, as well as the debut of the Ahhh Dress line by Rhonda Shear. Other HSN favorites include new pieces from Diane Gilman and Tiana B with accessories by RJ Graziano and Big Buddah Handbags.

Making appearances throughout the event as HSN’s style expert, fashion authority Verdi is one of the most highly recognizable faces in the world of fashion today. Verdi is the go-to style guru for celebrities like Eva Longoria, Bethenny Frankel, Kathy Griffin and Kristen Wiig.

Verdi is known for his appearances on “Full Frontal Fashion,” “Fashion Police” and E! Entertainment News Red Carpet. Robert will be giving the HSN customer the most coveted fashion tips and tricks while also engaging with fans on Facebook and Twitter.

Additionally, Rubenstein, will join HSN for the first time with his highly acclaimed book, “100 Unforgettable Dresses,” a must for all fashion enthusiasts, movie buffs, and celebrity watchers.
