Episode 27: The Masthead with Marie Claire Video
A writer is surrounded by her own celebrity entourage.
September is obviously our big fashion issue, and so we always try to come up with a big idea for September. This time, we just thought it would be great to cover all of the TV shows we know and love so well in addition to the newer shows that are coming out for fall.
We love our TV stars. We're very excited about the new season, especially 'cause this year has been a little disjointed with the writer's strike.
Our TV portfolio is a big undertaking. Here we are taking the casts of probably 10 different TV shows and dress the characters from the show and fashions that are gonna suit their personality within the show.
Would Dr. Eric Foreman wear a Valentino that's what you're wearing right now?
That's a great question. Might be a little too progressive for him, you know. Dr. Foreman is a little bit stiffer than I am. But this suit is great.
You're wearing Versace.
Yes. Oh, and why? I didn't even know. I love it. I love great colors, I like pink. I feel so fancy. To me, this is not work, it's fun.
So we each chose our favorite person from the show. And we just thought, let us put them in the most fabulous fashion we can find for them.
We had 25, I think 25 people in the end that we were styling and men and woman.
The studio looked like a department store.
It really did.
Elizabeth Reaser from "The Ex List," we put her in the fall floral trends issues in this beautiful Jason Wu dress, which she looks amazing in. I love it. I never wear florals, so I was surprised because it still has some sexiness to it, which is good.
I would wear-- I want this.
Do you know?
I don't know, I just wanna wear it out.
This is a beautiful Louis Vuitton dress. It's very structured and quite [unknown] to, you know, a time past and so I love that.
Just the classics. I love Gucci, you know, Dolce, the sort of the classics, Hugo Boss.
So we've got a complete, eclectic cross section of actors from the small screen. But they're all fabulous in their own way.
We heard that during upfront week in New York what networks we're picking up which shows, and I think it's gonna be a really great juxtaposition between the, you know, the returning shows that we just love and the new shows.
Some of the new shows that I'm particularly excited about this fall include Kath and Kim which stars the fantastic Molly Shannon and my girl crush, Selma Blair.
It's a dysfunctional mother daughter, you know, team but there are 2, you know, 2 or 3 great guys in the show.
It was a script. The characters were very developed and I just thought it seemed like fun and I like the character driven female comedies. It's fun to play character 'cause you're so separated from your self. I always do that on Saturday Night Live and I-- it's freeing to just change yourself a lot.
The Ex List is a show that is coming to CBS. It stars Elizabeth Reaser. She was Ava and Rebecca on Grey's Anatomy. She goes to a psychic, finds out that she has already dated the man she's supposed to marry, broken up with him, but if she doesn't find him within the next year, then she'll be single for the rest of her life.
It was just really fun to play someone who's looking to connect with someone and to fall in love and it's really magical.
What we've done is we've actually chosen it based on character as opposed to specific actor. I think they're gonna see, you know, the Marie Claire reader favorites. Not necessarily the main stream favorites for everyone.
My favorite shows that are returning would be Friday Night Lights. I'm always excited about 30 Rock, The Office, Grey's Anatomy.
The new season of House is pretty exciting. I can't give away too much. We got some nice twist and turns coming and I think, you know, people can sort of assume what's gonna happen based on our season finale that people are responding to it as great and, you know, I hope they continue to watch.

Tonight at the Hearst Building, we're hosting a screening of the film Holly. It's about a young girl who is trafficked in Cambodia. She's sold as a sex slave.
Tonight is a sort of really meaningful night to me because the cause is very close in my heart.
