Black Hollywood Live, the world’s first online broadcast network dedicated to African American entertainment news, interviews and commentary, announced actor, host, model and fashion expert Sam Sarpong is co-hosting the network's #1 weekly series, "Fashion 411." Sarpong joins Diona Vaughan, Courtney Stewart, and Erika Garcia Rojas to give viewers and listeners the 411 on what's trending in the fashion world.
Sarpong was cast by BHL for his extensive
fashion credentials. In 2011 he was named one of the top 10 male models
in the world by Mens’ Fashion magazine. Fashion Group International
named him one of the 75 most influential people in fashion. He has been
the face of famous brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, Ed Hardy and
Ben Sherman and is featured in the major campaigns of two international
brands, iconic “Boy London” and “Gesus Denim”. In addition, Sarprong has
been named as “Brand Ambassador” for Nelson Mandela’s 4664 fashion. In
October of this year, he flies to London to receive the “Icon In
Fashion” award presented by BEFTTA. This prestigious award recognizes an
individual with over a decade of excellent work in fashion.
Sam is excited to join “411” and says, “With BHL and Fashion 411 my
fashion fan base now has a place where they can hear a male perspective
on what celebs are wearing, which designers are hot and what’s trending.
I love my cast mates, we have great chemistry. I also wanted to come on
board because Maria Menounos is such a smart business woman, anything
she does is always successful.”
"Fashion 411 is one of our surprise hits," says Keven Undergaro, one
of the network creators. “To have someone of Sam's stature and talents
along with Erika [Garcia Rojas], Dionna [Vaughan] and Courtney's
[Stewart], BHL is truly blessed.
