On Tuesday, November 29, 2011, the newest Bravo-lebrity, Style Expert and Author of The Bra Book, Jené Luciani, premiered her guest-starring role on Bravo’s hit show Mad Fashion; and Bra La Mode was in the house for the star-studded event! The Intimate Affair, which celebrated the episode, was held at NYC’s Downtown Galway Hooker. Jené Luciani was joined by Chris March and the cast of Bravo’s Mad Fashion, NY Housewives Jill Zarin & Cindy Barshop, Doggie Moms’ Grace Forester & Karen Biel, Tracy Stern, High Society’s Paul Johnson Calderon & Tyler Burrows, Georgia Jagger, G2 Organics founder & socialite Cherie Corso, Starr Scott (wife of NY Jets Bart Scott), celebrity stylist Lauren Rae Levy, Erica Lundmark, BET’s Wayne Brown, PRO wrestlers Brimstone & Luscious, and many more famous faces. They walked the red carpet, mingled with some 200 guests; sipped Pisco Porton Bra-tini’s, nibbled on Cupcakes by Missy, and enjoyed Shellac™ manicures courtesy of Nail Gypsy.
The highlight of the Intimate Affair— Jené and her guests viewed her Mad Fashion premiere with the rest of the world, from the fabulous West Village venue. Jené’s episode, entitled “Brastrocity,” revealed the creation of the world’s first couture Bra Dress created by Chris March and his Bravo team. Jené wore the dress accented with $100,000 worth of jewels from celebrity jeweler Desires by Mikolay, topped off with a bra-cup cap accented with a feather.
Jené is no stranger to the small screen. She is a regular on NBC’s TODAY Show as well as many other outlets and has appeared on the Style Network, the Discovery Channel, NBC’s New York Live, CNN Money, Good Day NY among others. She is a regular fixture in both print and online magazines having been quoted and/or featured in nearly every major magazine and newspaper including Star, Glamour, Shape, Cosmo, etc. Of her first Bravo experience, Jené said, “Working with Chris and team was a fashion girl’s dream come true. Together, we created something that was one of a kind.” At the Intimate Affair, she donned a couture feather confection made especially for her by Constance McCardle.
Hailed as a “brilliant bra guru” by Bravo, a “stylist extraordinaire” and “bra fit guru” by the New York Daily News, Jené is a true Bra-lebrity and is admired by many within the lingerie community. She is a true friend to me and a huge supporter of Bra La Mode as well as to other independent lingerie professionals. In fact, Jené is excited to be joining the writing staff of Ellen Lewis’ Lingerie Briefs which is scheduled for re-launch by the end of this month. Jené will be answering reader’s Questions in the Intimate Inquiry forum on the new Lingerie Briefs. And, I’m very proud to announce that I will be writing the Intimate Affairs event reports on the soon to be re-launched Lingerie Briefs too. I’m in good company!
