"This is a hardcore show about hardcore chicks who are running a hardcore agency," ---Kelly Cutrone
Being on a press conference call with Kelly Cutrone is a lot like being tossed in the center of a cyclone of information-it's a breathless whirlwind of wisdom, no-nonsense sidebars, on-topic free association, razor sharp quips, and provocative opinion.
The call with Cutrone, the straight-talking founder of the fashion public relation's firm People's Revolution, and her two business partners, Robyn Berkley and Emily Bungert was to promote their new fashion reality show "Kell On Earth," which premieres on Bravo February 1st.
In full disclosure, I haven't exactly been glued to her appearances on "The Hills" or "The City." When I do have the time to be filled in on what's happening on scripted reality, it's usually on "Talk Soup."
But "Kell on Earth" is different.
The show is the real deal. Like it or not, Cutrone is the real deal too. 'Those' shows have a bunch of blonde girls and now I am on a show with a bunch of black-haired girls and they are not fluttering around-- viva le difference, according to Cutrone!
The cast of "Kell On Earth"
"Kell on Earth" is not the glamorized pop culture fashion ideal that you imagine from your frilly bedroom in Pocatello. It's a TVized documentary of what it is like to be in the fast-paced trenches of the New York fashion industry where, says Bungert , you actually get a real glimpse into the real day in the life of what a fashion publicist does.
The screener for the first episode of "Kell On Earth" has them preparing for the Spanish designer David Elfin's Spring / Summer 2010 show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York, a crisp and minimalist collection with plenty of edge. The other show is the Chado Ralph Rucci show, the American haute couture designer-Cutrone will remind you that it is not like Juicy Couture.
You will be reminded of a lot of things, including managing the pr expectations of her designer clients. Once those expectations are in place, "then the magic can happen." >> READ FULL STORY
