Sam Sarpong Joins Black Hollywood Live Network's Fashion 411

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.
