They make us laugh, by the funny things they say and the funny things they do. Comedians paint a picture of their lives as it relates to their environment and makes it relevant to us. So naturally, we expect to see them in stand-up comedy spots, specials, sitcoms, and comedic roles in movies. Yet a select few have made the transition over to the "other" side of the room, and delved into dramatic films. Tonight, our conversation is focused on three such professionals: Jackie Gleason, Mo'nique and Jamie Foxx.
This is a broadcast of an interview I had with both of these fashion mavens in February of this year shortly after the Oscars. We are talking about what to expect in the Wedding aisles, especially this coming June. This conversation is part of a longer conversation that will be in an upcoming book: The Experts Edition. Listen in to Anina Young of Brazen Lingerie and dress designer, Rose Jeffries.
