Las Vegas Lady Entrepreneur to Star in “Launch My Line”

Bravo’s new fashion reality TV show “Launch My Line” partners successful professionals with established fashion designers to do just as the title says:  create a fashion line. 

A graduate of the Harvard Executive Business School, Marilyn Crawford, who lives in Las Vegas, has established herself as the ultimate expert and spokesperson in business and entertainment.  Crawford is the CEO of Windsor PTM, a global strategic marketing company. She is also Chairman of 2810, a private business membership club. 

When she was three years old she got the fashion bug–  a woman who lived down the street from her made clothes that Crawford designed with the help of her father. 

Fast forward, now Crawford figures if she could catch a fashion guru’s eye, she shouldn’t have a hard time launching a fashion line.  She envisions a clothing collection designed for the “average-sized woman,” which Crawford describes as 12-14.  She says her line would be a cross between Miranda and Samantha from the TV show “Sex and the City,” and, like those two characters, make a loud statement. 

Meanwhile, not to let grass grow under her feet, Crawford continues to travel extensively around the globe for her business and entertainment clients which include: Coca-Cola, Sony Universal, Master Charge, CNN, Volvo, Larry King, Russell Simmons and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. 

Crawford has been named “Woman of the Year” from Arts Horizon and TD/Commerce Banks, and has received The International Women’s Exchange Compass Award, The Humanitarian of the Year Award and Ebony’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award. 

“Launch My Line” premieres Wed., Dec. 2 at 11 p.m. (PT) on Bravo.

Pamela Anderson Models Her Own Fashion Line

Pamela Anderson, a frequent partier in Las Vegas, is now reportedly  in New Zealand, debuting her fashion line A Muse.  Anderson showed up at a press conference, along with collaborator Richie Rich, wearing almost nothing but a printed pink scarf as a dress. 

As she turned around exposing her back tattoos and butt crack, she was wearing just a thong.  

Pammy is apparently desperate and willing to try almost anything, as she reportedly is drowning in financial debt and needs a lifesaver. 

The former Baywatch star, 42, allegedly owes $1.1 million to various construction companies for remodeling work on her Malibu home as well as back state taxes, L.A. County records show.

Batting Gorgeous Eyelashes Becomes Fashionable Trend in Las Vegas

It’s no secret that smoldering glances and flirtatious flutters lose a lot of firepower when your eyelashes are on the floor. That’s one reason Latisse, the first, FDA-approved, prescription treatment for growing longer, thicker eyelashes has created such a whirlwind.  The other reason?  Our stifling economy. Latisse

Many have probably heard of Latisse, but now its use is becoming increasingly trendy, especially in large metropolitan U.S. cities.   Some say the sagging U.S. economy is a major contributing factor for the popularity.  Spas and skin clinics report brisk sales, even without advertising, to women who have lost eyelashes and those who never had many to begin with. 

Las Vegas usage reportedly leads the pack, being an economical alternative to other more costly body enhancements including breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, liposuction, hair extensions and all other cosmetic nips and ticks. 

Commercials like Brooke Shields’ pitch for Latisse have graced television airwaves since 1997, when a change in Food and Drug Administration policy first made it feasible for pharmaceutical companies to hawk their products in explicit fashion, instead of just mentioning a product’s name and encouraging consumers to ask their doctor about it, such ads remain controversial. (The U.S. is the only nation in the world that allows this kind of advertising.)  

The medication results are apparently not hype.  The prescription drug medication grows your eyelashes longer and thicker.  It contains brimatoprost (0.03%), a prostaglandin that has been used for several years to treat glaucoma. During treatment, some glaucoma patients noticed their eyelashes getting thicker and longer. Someone smart at Allergan put two and two together, and behold, a treatment for thinning lashes was born.  

Latisse goes on like eyeliner, applied directly to the upper eyelid at the base of the eyelash. It is applied once a day, usually in the evening. Using it more often will not increase eyelash growth. It usually takes about a month to see results. 

The results, however, are not permanent. If you stop using it, your lashes will eventually return to their previous appearance. 

If you have a history of eye pressure problems or are using eye medications, you should consult an ophthalmologist before using Latisse. The most common side effect is itching or redness of the eyes. This occurred in about 4% of patients in a large clinical trial. 

A month supply of Latisse and the applicators are reportedly sold for a little over $100 dollars. However, some patients have found that by applying less it can last significantly longer, up to 10 weeks, many report.
