We’re pretty excited about the return of Big Morning Buzz Live to VH1 this week — it means there’s a whole parade of fashionable folks will be strutting by our office in the early morning, some of whom let us hound them for info on their getups for Style Seen. First up is Brad Goreski, the former assistant to Rachel Zoe who has now struck out on his own, both as a stylist to the stars and as a highly quotable reality TV star in his own right, on Bravo’s It’s a Brad, Brad World. He’s a pro at dressing people, so you wouldn’t guess that one part of the outfit he wore on the show Monday morning was bought at the last minute and another made him “a little nervous” when he put it on. Scroll down and we’ll tell you all about it.
The Band of Outsiders suit is what made Brad nervous, because it’s “very slim-fitting,” but it seems to have worked out just fine. And the Oxford shirt he had on was what he bought at the last minute yesterday, at Uniqlo, because he left his other one at home. The shoes, however, have a less humble origin: “I just got them from the showroom, from the new collection. I don’t think they’re out for sale yet,” he told us. The glasses are Dolce & Gabbana, and the bowtie is Lanvin, which Brad explained thusly: “I like mixing prints, so the polka dots with the [suit's] windowpane with the [shoes'] plaid with the red — sensory overload!” His Bulgari watch is “sportier than I usually wear,” but we think it’s a nice contrast to the preppy suit and tie, don’t you?
