Vogue for Martha

Following in the footsteps of Nina Garcia, fashion figures are popping up in a variety of TV timeslots, not even including fashion-related shows like Project Runway and America's Next Top Model (have you SEEN next cycle's roster of guest judges??  WOW).  You'd be surprised by who appears on the tube -- Anna Wintour on Late Night with David Letterman, for example.  Kind of an awkward episode, that one.  And occasionally you'll be charmed by the chemistry between host and guest.  Imagine...Grace Coddington speaking to Martha Stewart.  Wait, you don't have to imagine, just watch the video above!  Brought together by their love for cats, Martha coos over Grace's Persian felines and kitty charm necklace while Grace talks about her TOO CUTE picture book.

It's not so surprising to find such a crafty woman inviting fashion people onto her show.  There was also the time the Rodarte sisters went on her show to discuss their Spring 2010 collection.  Truthfully, that segment was one big yawn but you know who is NEVER boring?  Andre Leon Talley!  He always manages to make us laugh or smile, so it's no surprise that he appeared on the Martha Stewart Show more than once.  In this segment, you immediately know he won't disappoint...check out that long leather apron.

Too bad you can't find a full uninterrupted (and embeddable) video of Andre and Martha chatting it up like old friends.  A short summary of Andre's cooking lesson is viewable in the video above but you can watch the whole thing (and you should) on Jezebel.  I love how Martha is so enthusiastic about a shirt and an apron but so nonchalant about Andre's messy deviled eggs.  Cut him some slack...not everyone can make deviled eggs à la Martha Stewart, let alone know what deviled eggs are (eggs can be deviled?).

This is hilarious. I had no idea Martha was so into fashion - or at least fashion heavy hitters.

Joy Luck Club totally made me cry too - I wasn't prepared. I've actually never read the book, but I'm sure it'll make me cry.

Also, the designers of Proenza Schouler tie dyed with Martha Stewart. I recommend watching the video.
