Discover The Secret Behind The Fashionable Success Of CBS’ The Good Wife

May 4th, 2015 by Christen

wife_new

Just in time for the season finale of the critically acclaimed hit drama “The Good Wife”, I caught up with style guru, Dryel advocate and “The Good Wife” costume designer – Dan Lawson to discuss his life of fashion, designing the stylish TV moments and more.  Check out my interview with Dan below…

 

At what age & what moment did you discover your love of fashion & style?

Well, I studied costume designer in college.  Then, of course, one gets out of school and starts questioning everything.  But I absolutely knew costume design was my calling when I saw the Merchant/Ivory film, “A Room With a View”.  I was truly moved by the story that the clothing told in that movie.  I was such a nerd, I even wrote the costume designer to say how much I loved her work.  Of course, she didn’t write back, but I knew that was what I wanted to do nonetheless.

“Fashion” really came into play later when I started working in television on such shows as “One Life To Live”, “Lipstick Jungle”, “Kings”, and of course, “The Good Wife”.  TGW in particular was the perfect marriage of costume design and fashion for me.

 

How do you use technology to achieve day-to-day accomplishments in the fashion field?

Computer is key!  Research, correspondence, budget keeping, script work – everything goes through the computer.  TGW tries to be as green as we can.  So we do a lot through the computer.  Even pattern making can now happen on the computer.

There are other technologies that we use as well.  Instead of dry-cleaning all the time, we use Dryel.  Some of our vendors use amazing machines to create our own fabrics.   Superior irons like Rowenta that work incredibly well on clothes.

 

What are your favorite social media/fashion apps that you’re currently using?

I like Twitter.  I like to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening out there at any given moment.  Instagram is wonderful for research.

 

The-Good-Wife

 

What’s a typical day in the life for Dan like?

VERY LONG!!  I usually start by getting up at 5 and getting to set by 6:30 for a 7 AM call.  I work with the actors on their costumes for the day and make sure everyone looks the way I want them to before they go to set.  My team also checks/dresses the background actors.  Once the first scene is up and running, I usually have to go to my office in the wardrobe space at the studio for fittings with new actors.

While we are shooting the current episode, I also have to prep the next episode.  So in between checking actors before they go to set and fittings, I read the new script, break it down, research, shop, and work on roughing in the new episode’s wardrobe.  There are usually at least 3 meetings that I have to attend during the 6 or 7 day prep for a new episode – the initial meeting on the episode (called a concept meeting), my costume meeting with the director/producer, and finally the production meeting where we go over all the nuts and bolts before we start shooting.

The day starts to wind down around 7.  Our show tries to stick to a 12 hour shoot day.  Sometimes it’s longer and every once in a while it’s shorter.  Of course, if there is anything out of the ordinary with an episode, that takes extra time to handle.

We have long days Monday through Friday, but weekends are usually ours.  Although, if a new script comes in or there is a rewrite, I have to deal with it on my day off.  Episodic TV is a big machine and one has to stay in front of the work.  It’s like waiting tables, once you’re in the weeds it’s usually too late to salvage the situation.

Good-wife-fashion

 

How do you keep the clothes you work with on set looking their best?

Our actors at TGW wear a lot of clothes as well as wearing the same outfit for days.  Quite often they will have to wear a costume until the end of the day on day and then the first thing again in the morning.  Everything gets steamed or ironed daily.  We always run a lint roller over the clothing.  We check for any small repairs that might need to happen.  We check the buttons to make sure they are tight and perky – nothing worse than a drooping button on a suit, blouse or coat.  Using the proper hanger is also very important.  I usually like to have pants hang long rather than folded over a hanger to avoid creases right at the knee.  We will also turn garments inside out to allow them to get air to the inside which helps freshen them up.  We depill the knits.  We also dry-clean but try to dry-clean as little as possible since the process can be quite wearing to clothing.  We use Dryel a lot in the dryer to remove daily grime from all day wearing or stains.  We also use it for freshening up blouses, dress shirts, skirts.  It’s a great product too for rejuvenating vintage pieces or already worn pieces we pick up from the second-hand stores.

If you could only pack 5 items in your fashion survival kit, what would they be?

Female:  the perfect skirt (pencil or “A”); a versatile blouse; a well-heeled pump that is comfortable (not an easy thing to find, but well worth the effort of looking!); a nicely maintained bag – not a backpack; a simple, elegant earring that goes with everything

 

Male:  a well fitting suit; a white dress shirt with a nice crisp collar; a good leather belt; a classic dress shoe that is comfortable; and, like the ladies, a nicely maintained bag – not a backpack.

Five Celebs I’d Like To See Rocking The Apple Watch…And Five That Already Have It! (Are You Jealous Yet?)

April 22nd, 2015 by Christen

Ellen Apple Watch

 

It’s no secret that Apple “seeds” in the form of watches have been popping up on your favorite celebrities EVERYWHERE!  Personally, I feel taunted (I mean, we’re all “celebrities” in our own reich – so where the heck is our Apple Watch already?!? *SIGHS*).

 

Beyonce Apple Watch

Beyonce seen in the ultra exclusive gold link Apple Watch

Just in case you have been under a rock (and not obsessing over #AppleWatch on Instagram) – the latest batch of Apple watch celebrities rocking the exclusive time piece, has the internet all a stir, and I’m looking confused – like why?  Artists like Beyonce, Karl Lagafield, Katy Perry and Drake have all been seen wearing the coveted Apple Watch, but unless this watch promises that you’ll be an amazing singer or designer – I don’t see a valid point in these celebrity seedings at all.

 

Anna Winter Apple Watch

Fast forward to the celebrities that are currently on the go, making miracles happen everyday. (And by miracles, I mean juggling crazy schedules while constantly innovating and disrupting the normal standards of “celebrity” – no shade to Queen Bey) but let’s talk about the celebrities that I’d like learn from, discover the latest and greatest that have the same influence if not more.

 

(Hey Apple, if you’re listening) check out the five celebrities I’d like to see rocking the Apple Watch below…

 

Oprah – I’m just saying… Oprah owns and operates a television network, magazine and still finds the time to executive produce and star in movies!  If there’s anyone that could teach us a thing or two about time management on the Apple Watch and the art of getting things done – it would be Lady O.  (What I wouldn’t give to see what apps she’s obsessing over right about now!) #YouGetAWatchYouGetAWatchYouGetAWatch

 

45095-Oprah-You-Get-a-Car-Meme-gif-Wv1o

 

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg – Speaking of apps, if the King of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg was spotted with an Apple Watch, I’d instantly think two things.  One, the Facebook app for Apple Watch would be the BIZNESS and two, Facebook has figured out a how to make money on Apple Watch users (making everyone that owned one INCLUDING your favorite celebrities – an unofficial and unpaid employee!) #PimpinAintEasy!

 

giphy

 

 

Diddy – If you’ve ever believed in vampires or day walkers, might I present to you rap-mogul and Revolt TV Chairman, Sean “Diddy” Combs.  This man, manages to operate on level 10, 24hours-a-day!  Not only does he oversee Revolt TV, but he still has time to host events across the country (nightly), make music, make cameos in other artists’ music videos and inspire and overshare on social media! #TakeDatTakeDat

 

 

 

LeBron James – I’m completely shocked that an Apple seed hasn’t found it’s way to sports superstar LeBron James, I mean, isn’t the sole foundation of the watch fitness-related?  (Let’s face it, the Apple Watch really just an upgraded fitness band when it’s all said and done.) I’d like to see a pro athlete sporting the watch and demonstrating how it can enhance the athlete in all of us.  #ImTakingMyTalentsToGalaxyGear

 

 

Jared from Subway – Yes, that Jared.  One does not simply think he’s lost the weight equivalent to 12 Kindergarten students by eating a 6″ chicken teriyaki from Subway.  Jared was on that super workout plan (and I need receipts!)  Apple, toss this guy a watch and lets see how Jared really gets down in the gym.  #YouAintGotTheAnswersSubway

Just my humble musings and ill-educated thoughts, but these are the aspirational celebrities I’d like to see in the latest tech that’ll have impact on my buying decisions.  What about you?  Which celebrity would you like to see in the new Apple Watch? Why?  Share your thoughts below!

NYFW: DVF Spring 2015 Gingham Prints, Pops Of Color and Naomi Campbell

September 8th, 2014 by Christen

If there’s one show I look forward to witnessing every season, it has to be the DVF collection by Diane Von Furstenburg herself.  Always filled with statement pieces for the everyday woman, this collection houses much much than the iconic wrap dress – and that’s where the anticipation builds year after year.  Who knew this season’s off-site show would house such stylish moments with gingham, the legendary Pat McGrath, fashion’s newest “IT-GIRL” Kendall Jenner and fashion icon Naomi Campbell.

Legendary makeup guru, Pat McGrath sharing her favorite beauty tips for the DVF model looks.

 

 

My DVF fashion fun began hours before the show with lead stylist Orlando Pita (for CHI Haircare) & Beauty Guru Pat McGrath.  Throughout the sea of beautiful models laughing, snapping selfies and getting their finishing touches on hair, nails and makeup – a commanding, yet motherly  voice arises “Orlando, Orlando!”  and in walks Diane Von Furstenburg herself.

Diane and lead hair stylist Orlando Pita share a moment before the show.

 

After a few moments of praise, Diane and her team rushed to the the runway in preparation for the show rehearsal.  One by one, the models dressed in bright and bold golds, blues and greens walked the runway for final approval before the big show.

An impromptu photo shoot keeps the models busy while waiting for the rehearsal to begin…

Who doesn’t love DVF printed gingham bags and matching heels?

 

Once the show began, everyone was all abuzz about Kendall Jenner walking in the show, but it wasn’t until the showstopper herself – Naomi Campbell walked the runway that upped the anti on what could be considered a great Spring show.

The legend Diane Von Furstenberg appears for her ovation after the finale of her show.

 

Filled with bra tops, baby doll dresses and plenty of leg-worthy frocks to go around, this DVF collection is definitely more vacation friendly than office friendly, but hey that’s what makes DVF so great right?  I mean, we have more than enough wrap dresses to go around so this collection is a welcomed suite of fun fashions for any woman to enjoy next spring!

 

Check out more looks from the DVF Spring 2015 collection below.

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Show

 

The MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, but not without an air of controversy, ratchetness and omnipotent Bey sightings.  If you’re like me and endured this year’s show in hopes of seeing Beyonce accept the coveted MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, then you know it was all worth it.   There were a few highlights of the VMA’s last night, and I’ve sprinkled a few of Beyonce’s opening act moments for your enjoyment below.

 

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Show

 

Ariana Grande, Jesse J and Nicki Minaj kicked off the show with a medley of hits, Ariana Grande’s (aka Big Sean’s new boo) performed followed by a scandalous and booty-filled “Anaconda” performance by Nicki Minaj and then the heavily awaited performance of Jesse J’s “Bang Bang”.

 

The first award of the night went to Katy Perry (ft. Juicy J) for “Dark Horse” and then a few performance, awkward comedic monologues and epic crowd reaction side-eyes (Gwen Stefani and J.Lo – I’m looking at you…)

Even Taylor Swift got into the action performing “Shake it off” from her new album “1989” and Iggy Azelea and Rita Ora’s rendition of “Black Widow” had the crowd on it’s feet.

 

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Show

 

 

But nothing equalled to the moment we all waited for, the arrival of Beyonce’s earth-shaking and emotionally moving Video Vanguard Award performance.  Performing every single song from her self-titled album, Beyonce’ sang, danced and gave fans the best performance of the show.  Check out just a few award-winning moments from last night’s Video Music Awards below.
