It’s never a good time to faint. But it’s particularly inconvenient whilst performing open heart surgery, cleaning the alligator pen at the zoo, and hosting a live program on QVC. So it sucks to be Cassie Slane, a guest who passed out while hawking child-safe Android tablets on a recent program. Slane gets a slurry, makes panicked eye contact with her co-host and slumps over as the producers hastily cut away.
Props to her co-host for not missing a beat, though! And the good news she’s updated her Facebook to say she’s feeling much better.
In this clip from Vogue Italia, the mag imagines what might happen if QVC were to go really, really ridiculously upscale. The video is a companion piece to Vogue Italia’s January cover, shot by Stephen Meisel, and features models Joan Small, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly and Caroline Trentin decked in collections from Chanel, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Versace, among others. This quirky little clip shows that high fashion might (gasp!) actually have a sense of humor. And oh, the clothes are absolutely stunning. [Vogue Italia]

Though Janie Bryant’s “Mad Men”-inspired collection for QVC isn’t set to launch until the end of September, a few preview pictures just hit the internet in order to fuel our desire to dress like Betty Draper. Of the five items, there’s a selection of two jackets — one of which is reversible — and a variety of accessories, all ranging in price from $25.50 to $107. Between the pill box hat, scarf, jacket, and purse, one thing’s for sure: Janie’s already infused a healthy amount of animal print in the line. And while the selection doesn’t include the most original clothing items we’ve seen when it comes to ’50s-inspired design, it’s certainly easier to buy new rather than deal with the hassle of cleaning that goes into purchasing vintage.
