Well, the phenomenon that is the new generation of 90210 is apon us. And look at that, Shannon Doherty still looks like she’d cut your throat for a lip gloss.

The gang gathered, no not at the Peach Pit, but in Malibu for a party to laud the show’s permiere on September 2. In possible stunt-dressing Jenni Garth wore white (get it, she’s the good girl) and Doherty wore black.

Preview the CW’s ‘Stylista’ and spot the Devil Wears Prada mimicks

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on June 18th, 2008

America’s Next Top Fashion Journalist

By Andrea Thatcher on January 31st, 2008


We don’t know if we can take any more Tyra Banks. Particularly after realizing how hard it is to find a normal, attractive picture of her for this post – one where she doesn’t have a hairstyle that looks like origami or is trying to look super fierce. But … we digress.

What we can take – and gladly – is a show that focuses on fashion journalism. Banks and Ken Mok, producers of “America’s Next Top Model”, are reportedly working on a new show for the CW where contestants compete for a job at Elle. (Next concern: can we take any more Elle?)

Elle directors Joe Zee and Anne Slowey would judge the would-be journalistas. Since this is the CW, we don’t expect much serious reporting. But we’ve enjoyed other faux-reality glimpses behind the glossies like The Hills and Miss Seventeen, so we would be happy to integrate this into our non-scripted television schedule

Keep in mind however that you might need an Upper East Side teenager’s disposable income to afford these items. The Burch dress, for example, retails for $450.
