In Chapter 5 of Success Blvd., Shelley and I had the extreme pleasure of chatting with America’s Favorite TV Fashion Journalist, the incomparable Lloyd Boston. Lloyd is one of those rare personalities that is all parts fabulous and all parts humble. We speak about his chance meeting with Tommy Hilfiger while in college to his new run on “The Insider.”
But, it’s more than a conversation about fashion and his amazing career. We talk about what it takes to create and craft a brand that is enduring and versatile. Lloyd has been the go-to-guy for everyone, including recurring appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Today Show” and “The View.” We certainly left inspired and even more in love with the man I affectionately call, “The Gentleman of Style.”
