'America’s Next Top Model'

Yet another reality TV show that prides itself on competition, fashion and beauty. This show was one of the first to hit the screens when fashion met reality.

'The Real Housewives'

This is a show dedicated to following the relatively affluent housewives of America. We the viewers get an inside glimpse at the latest fashion collections and get to attend invite-only fashion shows all from the comfort of our own living room.

'Project Runway'

Hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, 'Project Runway' was the first of its kind mixing fashion, designers and fierce competition. Loyal viewers tune in each week to see what new designs will be showcased, who will be eliminated and what it takes to be the best in the biz.

'Mad Men'

One of highest rated shows on television, 'Mad Men' has incorporated the beautiful looks of its starlets like Joan Holloway and decked them in lavish 50s attire. With its popularity soaring, it’s not a coincidence that many young women are infusing the 50s glam style into their everyday wardrobes.

'Kell On Earth'

Kelly Cutrone, PR guru, got a show of her own after a dramatic stint on LA-based reality show 'The Hills.' Revered as a blunt b*tch, Cutrone is anything but “nice” and has two books, a website and a TV show to prove just that. With a lifetime of experience in the fashion world (despite that all she wears is black), if there’s one Kelly knows (besides PR), it’s fashion. Will there be a season two? We can only wait to find out.

'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'

Nothing screams fashion divas like the Kardashian sisters. With book deals, fashion lines and, of course, their own reality TV show, there is nothing these women have not mastered. You can check out all their fave dresses and heels, and even get an inside peek into their decadent wardrobes, all while watching their riveting and often hilarious show.

'Gossip Girl'

Considered by some to be the NYC version of the 'O.C.', G.G. has exploded into the forefront of fashion-forward television. With its main cast wearing the likes of Alexander McQueen and carrying Fendi clutches, there is no denying that this show has a preoccupation with fashion.

'The Fashion Show'

Tthe reality TV series hosted by fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and supermodel Iman which incorporates up-and-coming fashion designers with a competitive twist. Not only do you get a sneak peek at upcoming seasonal trends, you get to see what the best and brightest have to offer and what you could be wearing next.


Audrina Patridge hit the scene and TV screens across America in the early days of 'The Hills.' Her rocker-esque style and bombshell-bod got her noticed in no time. Dating the likes of Ryan Cabrera and Justin Bobby, Audrina transitioned from small-town girl to reality-television sex-kitten.

'Sex And The City'

No list would be complete without the #1 fashionable TV show in television history... Who doesn’t watch repeat after repeat. With loads of designer brands to drool over, this show set the precedent for what fashionable TV is all about.
