Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Fabulist is a fashion-oriented talk show that features lots of fashion and style brand labels, iffy vocab ("ass," "hell," "bitch"), and conversations about boobs and booty as they relate to fashion. It's a little much for tweens, but fashion-forward teens should be able to handle it.
What's the story?
THE FABULIST is a talk show that highlights the hottest trends of the week. Fashionistas Kristin Cavallari and Orly Shani take a look at the latest clothes, accessories, and make-up styles making appearances on fashion runways and red carpets. The latest trends in home decor, fitness, travel, and food also are discussed. Helping them out are rotating guest panels featuring trend setters such as The Face host Nigel Barker and models including Jessica White. At the end of each episode, they reveal the top trend of the week. Throughout it all, viewers get to share their opinions and vote on their favorite trends on the show's website.
Is it any good?
From slouchy pants and ombre lips to the merits of painting your walls black, the series discusses the pros and cons of the latest and greatest trends to emerge each week. It also highlights the designs and products that are going out of style.
If you're looking for something that looks beyond the world of fashion, styling, and decorating, you won't find it here. But if this is what you like, you'll find the show both informative and educational.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about trends. Who decides what's fashionable and not fashionable? What does it mean to be "in" and to be "out"? Are shows like this one designed to help people become more fashionable? Or are they really just for entertainment?
