I had the pleasure last week of not only previewing Hudson’s spring 2011 collection, but also chatting with the company’s creative director Ben Taverniti. Hudson luxury jeans are a favorite amongst celebrities and fashion industry folks because of the brand’s attention to detail — the signature flap pocket is instantly recognizable and so is its unique stitching. Taverniti draws on his experiences in Toulouse, Paris, Britain, and now that’s he’s a transplant to the West Coast, on Los Angeles, too. The talented denim designer gave me the 411 on the must-have denim this fall, how skinny and curvy women can rock Hudson jeans, and the “brand’s DNA.”

Our “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Memories


Get ready to do the time warp again, because “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is having a real moment. Next Tuesday’s episode of “Glee” will be an homage to the ’70s rock opera that still plays at midnight showings all around the country. Rachel will of course channel Susan Sarandon as Janet. Finn will be her Brad and Kurt will be Riff Raff. Apparently, John Stamos was originally going to be Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but the network wasn’t so comfortable with him signing “Sweet Transvestite.” So Mercedes will do it instead. And that’s not all. Apparently, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is in talks to direct a remake of the flick.

Since many members of The Frisky staff have fond “Rocky Horror” memories (will I ever forget the time my car broke down on the way home from a midnight screening and how awkward I felt talking to the tow truck driver while I was dressed as Columbia?), we thought we’d share them after the jump.
