Appearing in CNN Docu-Series AMERICAN STYLE January 13 and 20


I'm excited that the CNN docu-series I am an expert for - American Style - airs Sunday, January 13! The first two episodes will be shown back-to-back starting at 9 pm ET. I haven't seen it yet, so you know I'll be watching.
The four-part series examines how America’s changing style through the decades mirrored the political, social, and economic climate of the time. The production features around 70 cultural icons and fashion experts such as Tim Gunn, Donna Karan, Isabella Rossellini, Vanessa Williams, Beverly Johnson, Isaac Mizrahi, Christie Brinkley, Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg, and AndrĂ© Leon Talley. Oh, and then there's me. 

The series highlights some of the most memorable moments from fashion and pop culture, and shows how those connect with American history as a whole. The premiere episode explores style in the 1940s and 1950s, how World War II and Hollywood helped create America’s own fashion identity, and the introduction of new trends such as the bikini and zoot suit. The second episode explores the style of the 1960s and 70s as the youth culture comes into its own. 
The remaining two episodes air on Sunday, January 20 starting at 9 pm ET/PT and examine the style of the 1980s through the 2000s.

If you miss seeing it live, CNN has made the series available on demand through cable providers, Sling TV, etc. once the episodes have aired.
