TV Style

The Simple Life

Desperate Housewives

The O.C.

America's Next Top Model

Television has officially taken the style torch from magazine, film and even internet combined. Seems as though most of our fashion inspirations today come directly from TV shows such as "The O.C." and "Laguna Beach." Even now cancelled shows like Jessica Simpson's "Newlyweds" had a short term effect on the fashion industry.

Think about it...where would Paris and Nicole be without "The Simple Life?" And Mischa Barton...well, she would just be that little girl ghost from "The Sixth Sense." If you really give it some thought, most of our celebrity fashion icon's primarily work in television.

Television fashion inspiration isn't anything new...just think of today's "Desperate Housewives" as the "Dynasty" of the 80's. In the 70's, Farrah ruled on "Charlie's Angels" and the 60's had Mrs. Brady and Samantha from "Bewitched."

So do you think that fashion is really and truly inspired by television, or is it the other way around? What TV show had the biggest impact on your style? For me, it was "90210" in middle school, and then "My So Called Life" in high school (ick, I know). Tell us about your favorite (or least favorite) television inspired fashions!
