It's a Lipstick Jungle Out There!

It's a Lipstick Jungle Out There!

There's a new fashion-forward clique in TV town and I'm happy to welcome them and their fabulous wardrobes to the neighborhood. Lipstick Jungle, starring Brooke Shields, Kim Raver, and Lindsay Price, showcases much more realistic fashions than its competition, Cashmere Mafia. But don't mistake realism for boring. These ladies love their Jimmy Choo bags, leopard Louboutins, power suits, hip outerwear, and colorful accessories. Best of all? Only a few belts in sight!

In a conference call with reporters recently, executive producer Candace Bushnell and actress Brooke Shields gabbed about the show's fashions.

On the show's wardrobe:
Shields: "It is undeniably a high fashion show. But what I think makes it more accessible is that nothing in it is prohibitive. Nothing in it has a cartoon aspect to it where you couldn’t feasibly think that you could wear that yourself. . . . I think that they look amazing and I think that it’s comfortable on them. But you'll see them before you see the fashion. But then if you take a closer look you’ll realize it is a Louboutin shoe and it is a Chanel jacket, and it is a Dior outfit or a suit."

To hear more of what Lipstick Jungle has to offer,

Bushnell: "I think that the fashion is definitely important in the show. We have a stylist (Amanda Ross), who works for fashion magazines. And I think we’ve tried to keep the clothes real, very elegant."

On Brooke Shields's character's wardrobe:
Shields: "From the character’s standpoint, I don’t think that Wendy was as naturally fashionable. I think her two very obviously fashionable friends have had an effect on her. I think they’ve gone to her closet and they’ve weeded out, and made sure that she couldn’t make any mistakes. And that they sort of helped her along in the fashion world."

On Shields's opinion of the wardrobe
Shields: "I am infatuated with the clothes on the show. I would love to pretend that I really lived like that. It comes very naturally to these characters and I need a bit more help. I think that the minute I sort of don certain costumes, I shouldn’t say, but the wardrobe that Wendy gets to wear, there is a sense of power in it and a sense of strength."

i liked CM better than LJ just because CM was much more dramatic and fast paced. i mean whats a tv show without all that drama. LJ was just too plain for me. and i love the unrealistic high end fashion that appeared on CM.

I despise Brooke Shields... and this show adds fuel to that fire... it's like she's reading the script [kinda like Michelle Pfeiffer in Tequila Sunrise... remember?]. Cashmere Mafia is more interesting, more funny, and more fabulous. HOWEVER... Neither of them are... nor will they ever be SaTC

I loved the show, haven't read the book (I will) and I haven't watched Cashmere Mafia (I will) to compare. I think the first episode was good I'm intersted enough to keep watching and I very much agree w/ socialitebabe. I'm black and would love to see a black woman who is in 1 of these shows as the lead and not a famous guest star like in SATC (nothing against SATC I love it). Jennifer Hudson is Carrie's assistant and I'm talking about on the tv show.

The outfits for this show were decent; I liked some of their outfits for outside of work functions, but felt that their work clothes (for Wendy and Nico) were just regular and didn't leave any room for viewers to dream about owning their outfits.

cashmere is definitely a bit more fast paced. but i enjoyed lipstick jungle bc it just felt more real. the acting and the chemistry bwt the grls won me over. it wasn't overdone like cm. but i'll prob still watch both :] and i know everyone's comparing these shows to satc, but really, nothing will ever live up.

so far i like Cashmere Mafia better. being realistic is one thing, but I feel like the whole point of watching a show like this is to see and dream about the fabulousness of it all. this is too boring..

i haven't read the book. but i was so unimpressed by the show... and, is victory supposed to seem so much younger than the other two? she seems very out of place...

Fab84, I completely agree...I adore the book so I have pretty high expectations for the show! And I'm not sure it's going to live up to them.

I thought the show was a little too perdictable. I LOVED the book and dont get me wrong I was so excited.... but it was just like the book, so much so, that I knew excatly what was going to happen next. So far I like Cashmere Mofia so much better, but Im still rooting for Lipsick Jungle. I really hope they work on making the plotline more interesting.
