Fashion Police

Guest written by our friend Sergio Chaney

One of my favorite shows to watch these days is Fashion Police on E! on Directtv. The shows stars Joan Rivers who has several guests with her each episode to sit about and talk about what celebrity wore what outfit and to which event each week. The guests are usually a combination of George Catsiopolis, Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osborne.

Sometimes they will switch out one of the regulars for a new person but most of the time it is the same fab four. They will show pictures of celebrities on red carpets and then vote and decide if each of them thinks the celeb looks hot or not. Usually everyone doesn’t agree on each one and then at the end of the show they vote for who gets best and worst dressed for the week.

One segment that they do that I really like is B*tch Stole My Look. They will compare two celebrities who have chosen to wear the same outfits and then decide who looks the best in it. I usually whole heartedly agree with them.

A Tidbit on Talbott

Robert Talbott was founded by Robert and Audrey Talbott in the 1950s. Audrey, prior to her marriage to Robert, was a clothing buyer. As a hobby, she created bowties for Robert and his friends. With her skill and Robert's dream to manufacture a true quality product, Robert Talbott the company was born. By 1955, the business was a success and they were traveling the world for silk.

In 1958, the first Robert Talbott store opened in Carmel, New York with a second opening in Pebble Beach in 1968. 24 years later, in 1992, a Madison Avenue showcase store was opened. Dress shirts were added to the Robert Talbott line in 1990, which had been exclusively ties up until this point. Casual shirts and outerwear followed.

Today, Audrey Talbott has shifted her focus to high quality ladieswear and her eponymous line is featured at many boutiques throughout the country.
