Styled by James: The Talk Show was a labor of love. When our captain called on us, we rose to the occasion and today he thanked us. On June 25th, James welcomed a large crowd – some friends, some strangers and dished for two hours all about fashion. He was able to do tons of giveaways thanks to some fabulous sponsors, but the highlight of the event was the fashion police segment that had stylists from Vh1, Harper’s Bazaar, New York Fashion Week, and L’Officiel Paris. It was absolutely amazing. Check out these clips compiled by famed fashion photographer Mikhail Veter below:
