CNN showcases london fashion week
News Date: 7th October 2010


This month on CNN’s, REVEALED explores the glamour and glitz of London Fashion Week through the eyes of leading model, Erin O'Connor on DStv.

Queen of couture, O'Connor was regularly told to have cosmetic surgery in the early days of her career. Now, the 32 year old is worth ?12million, according to The Sunday Times rich list. She has been one of the biggest names in modelling for 15 years - having been the face of Gaultier, Valentino, Dior, McQueen, Chanel, Givenchy - and many more.

Airing on Wednesday October 20 (11:30 CAT) on DStv, Revealed accompanies O'Connor during London Fashion Week, September 2010 - attending shows and parties with her, whilst also seeing her at work at the Model Sanctuary. This is her charity project which seeks to protect and nurture up-and-coming models. O'Connor's answer to the size zero debate is - instead of models getting the blame for being too thin and unhealthy, she wants to mentor the industry's rising stars, and teach them how to look after themselves.

From the front row of Vivienne Westwood's show to the sanctuary, REVEALED hops in and out of cabs with Erin, as she divides her time between the buzz and excitement of the red carpet, whilst still offering a shoulder to cry on for confused and exposed young models.

Tune in and be part of the action as REVEALED'S cameras also mingle with other members of the fashion elite, including Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Jasper Conran for an intimate portrayal of the fashion industry from behind-the-scenes and in front of the lens.

Tune in for REVEALED on Wednesday October 20 (11:30 CAT) on CNN (channel 401) on DStv.

Gordon ramsay’s ‘f word’ returns to bbc lifestyle on dstv

He has been awarded a total of 12 Michelin Stars and, in 2001, became one of only three chefs in the United Kingdom to hold three Michelin stars at one time.? His name is Gordon Ramsay and this October season five of his much anticipates show, F WORD returns to DStv.

Every? Tuesday (20:25 CAT) on BBC Lifestyle, the show returns with an exciting new mission: a search across the UK for The F Word's Best Local Restaurant.

The series celebrates the very best independent local restaurants with the help of nominations from thousands of restaurant goers across the UK. 18 fantastic restaurants in 9 different categories (Italian, Indian, French, Chinese, Spanish, Thai, The Americas, British, Rest of the World) have made it into the series.

Each week, the top two face the challenge of cooking with Gordon in the F WORD restaurant for 50 paying diners. The best restaurants compete for a place in the grand final, with the winning restaurant being crowned The F Word's Best Local Restaurant.

In the episode titled Janet’s Mixed Grill, culinary cruise missile Janet Street-Porter attempts to rear not one but three different meats to be cooked and served in THE F WORD restaurant in the series finale, as well as providing vegetables from her organic garden.

The much-loved recipe challenge also makes a return as each week Gordon challenges a celebrity to match him in the kitchen, preparing recipes of their choice that are then judged by a panel of blind tasters.

Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, from the age of five. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management.

His first years in the kitchen were spent training under culinary luminaries such as Marco Pierre White and Albert Roux in London, after which he moved to France where he worked in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Jo?l Robuchon for three years where he was able to enhance his expertise in classic French cooking. In 1993, Gordon became chef of the newly opened Aubergine, within three years the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars.

Gordon's first book, Passion for Flavour, was published in 1996. Since then a number of hugely successful books by Gordon have been published. His most recent recipe book, Gordon Ramsay’s World Kitchen was published in November 2009.

In 1998 at the age of 31, Gordon set up his first wholly owned restaurant, Gordon Ramsay, in Chelsea. On 19th January 2001 it won its third Michelin star. In October 2001 Gordon opened Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's which won a Michelin star in 2003. The same year saw the opening of Gordon Ramsay Holdings first international restaurant, Verre, located in the Dubai Hilton Creek Hotel. A year later he opened in St. James's. Within seven months it had won a Michelin star. The restaurant relocated to The Berkeley Hotel in 2003 and won its second Michelin star in January 2007.

The fifth international Gordon Ramsay restaurant opened towards the end of the year at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Powerscourt, Ireland. January 2008 saw the re-opening of Chelsea’s classic neighbourhood bistro, Foxtrot Oscar, on Royal Hospital Road, just a few doors away from Gordon’s eponymous restaurant.

April 2009 saw the launch of maze by Gordon Ramsay at The One&Only hotel in Cape Town. At the beginning of July, Gordon Ramsay Holdings opened Gordon Ramsay at Forte Village, at the exclusive and luxurious resort in Sardinia. This was closely followed by the launch of Contrada at Castel Monastero in Tuscany in August.

In early 2010, P?trus reopened in Motcomb village, right in the heart of Belgravia. Further afield the group launched its first restaurants in Australia, with maze and maze Grill opening at the Crown Entertainment Complex, Melbourne in March 2010. October 2010 will see the long awaited re-launch of the iconic Savoy Grill, following a refurbishment of the entire hotel.
