NEW YORK--The Learning Channel (TLC) is adding a new subject to its curriculum: Fashion. Currently in production in Los Angeles, "Simply Style" operates on the principal that fashion sense is not a quality that individuals are born with. The show's producers are pushing the idea that even style can be learned. Set to air this fall, the series will feature an array of fashion industry experts in a talk-show setting. Jose Eber, Delta Burke, Mariette Hartley and Fred Hayman are among those who have been booked to "educate" budget-conscious viewers on aspects of fashion and image enhancement. According to TLC senior vice president of programming John Ford, studio audience participation will also be a hallmark of the show. "Experts will address real questions from real people," he said. Hosted by Leah Feldon, formerly a lifestyle reporter for NBC's "The Today Show," the half-hour program will premiere on Sept. 25.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
