Where have you been? If you are just now learning about Carol’s Daughter it may be because of the more recent celebrity endorsements the brand has been receiving. Somewhere along the way America figured out that “celebrity sells”. With top names like, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Mary J Blige, Erykah Badu, and Chaka Khan backing your brand – what girl doesn’t want to try these products?

You might be asking yourself, well who is Carol’s Daughter. Carol’s Daughter is Brooklyn native Lisa Price. In the 90’s she began experimenting with oils and fragrances to make as gifts for her friends and family. And isn’t that the beginning to all great things – small. Word of mouth spread and soon a demand for her product was conceived. View Post

In an effort to save the top magazine editors a trip to a not so far NY venue, she’s bringing the collection to them?

On Tuesday, she will load eight models into a van and drive them to the three buildings that house most of the publishing world’s most major editors — Condé Nast at 1 p.m., Hearst at 3 p.m., and Time Inc. at 5 p.m.

The models will do a curbside fashion show for the editors, or their interns, that can manage to leave their desks for 8.5 minutes. (I hear she’s serving cheese and crackers too!)

I am not sure if this is a great idea – where’s the exclusivity. Isn’t that what fashion is all about? So if you’re not too busy reading blogs Tuesday sit out front of any of those buildings – you may just get a show!

I am sure all you label whores will eat this up but I am not sure if your pockets can handle it!

The luxury fashion house, Versace, partnered with ModeLabs Group on its first ever touch-screen mobile phone called Unique. The face is made from high-tech ceramic or lacquer with your choice of an 18-karat gold or stainless steel finish. The back is covered in handcrafted leather in pink, purple, or black.

LG Electronics created the software and they are working on something new for Prada. Next month Unique will be available in Versace flagship boutiques and watch and fine jewelry shops.

$6,747 for the basic model, and $8,464 for the ceramic-gold alligator skin model.

I hope it has voice dial! Comments!

I had a lengthy “facebook” discussion earlier today which prompted me to share this video with you guys. If you have been living under a rock let me get you up to speed. Earlier this week, Lane Bryant published a blog post accusing ABC and FOX networks of censoring their new lingerie advertisement claiming they would not air the commercial during prime time hours.

 

Lane Bryant model Ashley Graham (the model featured in the commercial) basically threw ABC and FOX under the bus in an interview:

“ABC restricted our airtime and refused to show the commercial during “Dancing with the Stars.” Fox demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of “American Idol,” but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy. Yes, these are the same networks that have scantily-clad housewives so desperate they seduce every man on the block, and don’t forget Bart Simpson, who has shown us the moon more often than NASA, all in what they call “family hour.” View Post
