Gladiators everywhere are ecstatic for the long awaited season premiere of Scandal. In addition to Thursday’s premiere, we are pleased to announce that Scandal and Saks Fifth Avenue are becoming a twosome ; the fashion forward store is joining forces with the series on a multi-platform (in-store, on-screen, and online) collaboration to celebrate the show’s star and style icon Olivia Pope ( Kerry Washington). If you are a Scandal fanatic and a fashion buff ,this is an ultimate dream come true. The collaboration is set to launch at an event this coming Wednesday- at the New York Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store. The store’s infamous windows will feature installations created by both Kerry Washington and Scandal costume designer, Lyn Paolo, that include pieces from favorite designers of Olivia Pope–(think Donna Karan meets Giorgio Armani.) Olivia’s infamous line from the show, “It’s handled,” will also appear on the store’s windows. Similar installations will be recreated at Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Beverly Hills, CA and Chevy Chase, MD. If you are nowhere near any of these Saks locations, fear not, you can still follow along with the campaign on social media.
Forbes released their list of the highest paid TV actresses, and for the second year in a row Sofia Vergara takes the top spot. The list, which calculated the money actresses earned from June 2012 to June 2013, reported that Vergara made $30 million in that time.
With the collective amount earned by all the actress on the list is $183 million, it’s not just their TV salary that Forbes is taking into account. Such as in Vegara’s case, Forbes took into account not only her Modern Family salary but also her clothing line with Kmart as well as her endorsement deals with Covergirl and Diet Pepsi.
The greatest aspect to Jane Basch's pieces is they are fashion forward yet timless, elegant yet edgy, and can literally be worn with everything, from jeans to your most stylish dress. Celebrities agree, and at any given time you may spot Justin Bieber, Khloe Kardashian, Carly Rae Jepsen or Kerry Washington wearing a customized monogram piece of jewelry by Jane Basch.
During the presentation, Jane - who is stylish and elegant - shared how many years her company has been in business and that quality is of the utmost importance when designing her collection. "Many trends come and go, I've seen it all -- but we shall remain." It's that perfect melding of what's brand-new with what's always in-style that's the key to her continued success.
It also was an enjoyable evening, because we were able to chat with other writers and editors, such as those from Brides magazine. All of the fashionistas that attended the preview event were able to custom design their very own personalized monogram piece of jewelry -- choices were necklaces, earrings, rings and it was hard to decide. Joonbug decided on a bold ring with our initial in a script "D." There's an emphasis on oversized jewelry this fall with Jane saying "bigger is better." There still are her petite personals and other pieces of more delicate jewelry for those that favor a more sublte-look. We have always felt there's a sense of pride and power in wearing your initials and name on a piece of fine jewelry. Jane also makes her pieces affordable to all with many stylish designs priced from $60 and up! It was a beautiful evening at the quintessential Central Park Loeb Boathouse for a quintessential brand. Bravo to Jane Basch for custom designed jewelry that no matter who you are -- you always feel like a million bucks! Layer on pieces and create a look all your own.
