HBO + Kanye West = Reality TV heaven?

By admin on August 5th, 2008

Since everyone from Scott Baio to DMX has a reality show these days, why not Kanye West? That’s what HBO have been thinking but apparently they need a writer to “capture Kanye in the right way”. This isn’t the first time West has featured on HBO, with an Entourage cameo to his name.

Traditionally, reality shows with stars in the prime tend to be tame affairs (seeing as they actually have some dignity to lose, unlike Scott Baio) but seeing as Kanye has had most of his outrageous moments captured on tape, it might just be no holds barred. After the jump, I’ve included a clip of Being Bobby Brown – a reality show all the others wish they could be.

At this year’s CFDA awards, Thom Browne, Michael Bastian and Tom Ford all starred in a spoof of HBO series In Treatment. As someone who’d never heard of that show until I just googled it, the spoof kind of went over my head. Ford’s a believable actor in this though, if the whole fashion thing wasn’t going so well, he probably could consider acting as a career. See for yourself after the jump.

Stars of The Wire go all high fashion

By admin on May 28th, 2008

thewire.jpgIf I were to play a word association game with things from The Wire, the last thing I’d associate with it is high fashion. So I was more than a little surprised to see Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson – who play Marlo and Snoop – in this weekend’s Guardian sporting Prada and Paul Boateng. On the plus side, it did give me an excuse to pimp the show -which is the greatest TV show ever – to anyone within earshot. A bit like how I’m pimping it now.

The shoot itself was ok but it could have been better. For one, there was an over reliance on blazers and t-shirts, which just look terrible together. Felicia Pearson also just looks uncomfortable out of sporty clothing, so it makes for an awkward looking shoot. The best looks were the Y-3 outfits because the subjects looked comfortable in their outfits and the purple Ozwald Boateng suit, which I would consider wearing if I had a spare £895 lying around.
