Tonight’s “Don’t Miss” Fashion TV

Seriously, people. Pay attention, for tonight may promise to be some gooooood Fashion TV. And yes, it’s on Bravo… go figure.

Tonight is the Fashion Show where the Real Housewives of Orange County, as well as a sprinkling of Housewives from New Jersey, are getting a make-under by our contestants. And from the teasers they’re showing, it looks like Calvin was paired with Teresa… fireworks? Train wreck? Shark tank? All deliciously intriguing possibilities.

And, if that weren’t enough to please me while doing more Christmas gift knitting tonight, there’s Watch What Happens Live with guests Iman and Diane von Furstenberg.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG! I love everything about her, in fact I adore her. I love her clothes, I love her face, I love her work, I love her tweets, and I *love* wearing her clothes.

Truly it’s Don’t Miss Fashion TV… you can’t blame it on me if you forget to set your DVRs. I warned ya!

The Fashion Show on Bravo

Did you see the premiere last week?

After last year’s inaugural season, I had some mixed feelings about how successful I expected the show to be the second time around. But they’ve revamped the format just enough — and they brought in Iman to replace Kelly Rowland… I mean really, it’s Iman!!! — to make me curious.

After watching last week, I love what they’ve done! Instead of individual designers always competing against each other (a la Project Runway) they’ve split the contestants into two “fashion houses” to compete against each other (a la Red Kitchen and Blue Kitchen in Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, another fave of mine). Losing team means one contestant goes home.

My immediate favorite to win, and the same one who won the opening challenge, was Cesar. Kinda loved his point of view. First love-to-hate award goes to the pretentious Calvin, although his line, “Oh no, here go hell come,” was so tweetworthy, I considered pausing the DVR and grabbing the laptop (but didn’t).

So November this year means no Project Runway and no Rachel Zoe, but we do have the Fashion Show. Kinda psyched for tomorrow, are you?
