Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B) will host an exclusive preview of the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2009 collection at the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Shop at Nordstrom Fashion Valley in San Diego on Saturday, April 11 from 11 AM to 2 PM.
At the collection preview, Katherine will share her three favorite looks and will sign autographs for the first 100 guests. Those in attendance will also be able to enter the Soap Opera Star for a Day contest. The winner of the drawing will be awarded a B&B set visit whereupon they will receive exclusive VIP treatments and the opportunity to mingle with the cast!
In anticipation of this exciting event, Katherine took some time out to answer Soaps.com’s questions about fashion, B&B and other projects she has in the works.
Soaps.com: How did you get involved in the Lauren by Ralph Lauren event?
Katherine Kelly Lang: I’ve worn Lauren by Ralph Lauren on The Bold and the Beautiful and when they had this opportunity arise, I thought it was the perfect fit! I’m very excited about being a part of the Lauren by Ralph Lauren event.
Soaps.com: Have you already previewed and chosen your top three designs from the Spring/Summer collection being presented?
Katherine Kelly Lang: Yes! They are quite beautiful. It seems I’ve become partial to the navy in their line.
Soaps.com: What catches your eye when choosing fashions for yourself?
Katherine Kelly Lang: Simplicity, color and fit. I try to stay with classics more than trendy looks.
Soaps.com: What about Ralph Lauren’s designs are appealing to you?
Katherine Kelly Lang: They are classic, beautiful, feminine in a subtle way, and timeless. If I had to wrap it up in one word, I’d say “elegant.”
Soaps.com: We receive many inquiries regarding B&B’s fashions. Do you have a favorite outfit or piece of clothing that you’ve worn on the show?
Katherine Kelly Lang: There was a dress by Lauren that I wore recently on the show. Before I even was asked to host this event! It was a sleeveless, white blouse with ruffles that had an attached gray skirt. I received so many compliments on that outfit. When I tried it on it fit perfectly! No alterations for our wardrobe department.
Soaps.com: What is your fashion style when you’re not at work?
Katherine Kelly Lang: My favorite is jeans and t-shirts. That's not really a fashion style, but when I'm not working I like to be comfortable and casual. Maybe this is because when I'm working, which is a lot, I'm always dressed to the hilt, as my character, Brooke, runs a fashion house.
Soaps.com: One lucky winner at the event will receive star treatment from the B&B stylists. Can you expand on what that person can expect from the same hair and makeup experts that work on you?
Katherine Kelly Lang: Well, they'll receive the excitement of coming to CBS Television City where we tape and they'll be made up by our fabulous hair and makeup people amongst the actors who are getting ready for the day. They'll be able to experience it exactly as we do, everyday.
Soaps.com: Since I have you, can you share your thoughts on what's happening on B&B right now? Namely, how Ridge's and Brooke's children are affecting their relationship?
Katherine Kelly Lang: Brooke and Ridge have come so far in their relationship through the years. As you know, they recently determined that no matter what was going on around them, and in the lives of their children, parents and siblings, they would remain dedicated to their love and to making their marriage stronger each day.
Soaps.com: You also opened a spa in Rome. How is it going and do you have plans to bring them to the U.S.?
Katherine Kelly Lang: Unfortunately, the location in Rome has closed. However, my husband, Alex D'Andrea and I are currently pursuing other opportunities for the Kelly Spa brand throughout Europe, Australia and North America.
Soaps.com: You are also taking part in the Rally For Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup in May. Have you driven a race car before? Are you more nervous or excited about it?
Katherine Kelly Lang: I won't actually be driving the car. I'll be navigating. I'm very excited about it because it's raising money for a cause I so wholeheartedly believe in, which is finding a cure for children's cancer. The funds will go to research, and patient needs at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. To find out more about how you can help me raise these needed funds, and to provide hope for so many children and their families, log on to Rally For Kids, then click through to Los Angeles, then to Celebrity Sponsors then my name.
All attendees of the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer preview will receive refreshments and gifts from Lauren by Ralph Lauren and In Style Magazine.
Nordstrom Fashion Valley is located at 6997 Friars Road in San Diego, California.
