Bravo Responds to Project Runway Move

In April, Bravo TV piqued my interest when they announced the pending debut of “Launch My Line.”

Then I really paid attention when they said the show would feature Dan and Dean of DSQUARED2.

Yes, it’s fairly obvious that this is Bravo’s response to Project Runway’s epic move to Lifetime.

But a part of me feels like “Launch My Line” may wriggle its way into our Wednesday TV-watching habits after it debuts December 2 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

Can’t wait? Get a sneak peek here.

Dsquared2 Celebrates Store Opening in Cannes

Yesterday, Dsquared² hosted an afternoon cocktail and ribbon-cutting ceremony of its boutique on Boulevard la Croisette in Cannes.

The after-party guest list included names like Paris Hilton and Dita Von Teese.

We’re told Dsquared² also presented guests with exclusive sunglasses.

Btw, how long will it be before Paris ditches the aerobics-type headband? Seems like this phase is never going to end!

Bravo Making Big Plans

Pretty soon, we’ll be struggling to fit a gazillion fashion-inspired TV shows into our already hectic viewing schedules.

Bravo has just announced a pretty hefty slate of reality TV programming  fashionistas will heart.

LAUNCH MY LINE

“Launch My Line,” (previously announced as “Celebrity Sew-Off”)  is gonna be Bravo’s newest fashion competition series. It’ll probably compete fiercely with Lifetime-bound “Project Runway.” The show features 10 established fashion designers paired with pop culture notables, who are highly regarded in their own field of expertise, but have always dreamed of having their own line.

The notables will work with the established designers to bring their vision to life and create a fashion line. In the end, one team will be declared the winner and the notable will win a chance to launch their own fashion line.

Hosts will be twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2 (Yaay!). Stephanie Greenfield and Lisa Klein will serve as judges. 

SECRET LIFE OF SUPERMODELS

Bravo will take viewers behind the scenes of supermodels’ lives. They’ll look past the jet-setting and catwalk galloping  at the models’ “unusual passions,” complicated relationships and every day problems.

The docu-series will feature supermodels Carol Alt, Maggie Rizer, Frederique Van Der Wal, Mariel Hemingway, Irina Pantaeva and Patricia Velasquez, showing how they come together to deal with work and relationships outside of the modeling world. 

“The Rachel Zoe Project” will return for a second season, while “The Fashion Show” hosted by Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi will also make its debut.

Also look out for “Double Exposure,” featuring photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani, along with high-end stylist GK Reid.

It’s gonna be crazy!
