Macy's and Maker Studios, the world’s largest provider of online video content for millennials, have teamed up to bring us an exciting new competition series, The Next Style Star. The ten-episode original online series debuted on April 3rd.
The Next Style Star features 16 aspiring stylists competing against each other for a chance to win $10,000 (final prize amount – competitions leading up to the finale result in a $5,000 prize for the winning stylist) and to serve as a guest stylist on a Macy's photo shoot. Incredibly exciting for any stylist – the winning style will be featured in the Impulse Department at Macy's Herald Square store in New York City.
“With an ongoing focus on the Millennial customer, Macy’s is passionate about creating innovative partnerships that will result in fresh, entertaining, and useful content for our customers,” says Martine Reardon. “Maker Studios is known for producing inventive video that appeals to the artful and sharp-witted tastes of this generation, and by joining forces to create The Next Style Star, we can showcase the best of what both brands have to offer.”
See what Gretchen Rossi, Kim Kardashian, Joanna Krupa and other reality stars are to this week in our photo gallery.
The photo above (and one in the gallery) of Kim Zolciak is from February, but we stumbled on it this week and they were too fun not to share. All that's missing is a lit ciggy hanging from her mouth and this photo would be Peg Bundy perfection.
Also spotted: Kim Kardashian attended a political event with sister Kourtney. Kendra spent some time with her family (on the red carpet) and Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed some time with Nikki Ferrell. And Bethenny Frankel ran errands in NYC.
WE tv announced today that it has renewed both Kendra On Top and Tamar & Vince for a third season!
Tamar Braxton is going to be one busy woman! Not only does she have her new talk show debuting this fall "The Real", filming Braxton Family Values and taking care of baby Logan and her singing career, she's returning for season 3 of Tamar & Vince! The show will premiere this fall.
From the press release: “Tamar & Vince” spotlights the youngest Braxton sister, Tamar, and her husband/manager, Vince. During the second season, viewers followed Tamar’s burgeoning solo career, the release of her album “Love and War” and the birth of her first child – Logan Vincent Herbert."
The reality stars were seen filming segments in Central Park for their latest tasks, which indicates they're still on the show – at least as of yesterday. Despite what looks like drizzly, miserable weather, Kenya looks good and Brandi, too. Maybe it's the more "natural look" of not having perfect hair due to the dizzle?
I can't say enough times how excited I am to watch Kenya, Kate and Brandi on the show. In the past I've only watched little bits – like when Teresa Giudice was competing, but this season I'll be tuning in – at least until these three are fired. We're planning to cover this hot mess, so stay tuned! Check out the pictures from yesterday's task below.
Jacqueline was reportedly done and over the craziness of the show after five long drama-filled seasons, but it looks like that isn't so! We heard reports of film crews at her home, but many assumed she was possibly filming bits for Caroline's spinoff show or another project of her own. But Ashlee seems to confirm that Jacs will be on the show.
Kandi andTodd Tucker tied the knot on Friday in Atlanta and Todd had to leave town nearly immediately to start a new job. Kandi shared the details, "Good afternoon! I woke up feeling blessed & highly favored this morning & I hope you did too! I just wanted to say thank you for all of your well wishes prayers for @todd167 & I. I know people are asking why am I on Instagram when I should be on my honeymoon."
Engaged since August 2013,Taylor and John tied the knot in a beachside ceremony in Pacific Palisades. Taylor, who wore Chagoury Couture for the nuptials, shared: "Today, John, Kennedy and I became a family. I married my best friend and Kennedy's family circle became complete."
Someone must've gagged Mama Joyce and locked her in a closet for a few hours because Kandi and Todd tied the knot today – without interruption!
Kandi confirmed the happy wedding news to In Touch. Mrs. Tucker gushed after saying "I Do", "This is one of the best days of my life! I never imagined that I would marry my best friend. Todd’s been that to me. And to have just had the wedding of my dreams, it’s all been so beautiful. Now it’s time to party!"
