Low and Slow

Episode 7:'s Associate Editor breaks down Brad's best pearls of wisdom.

We've reached the penultimate episode of the season, and it seems like everything is coming together for Brad! OK, maybe not the dog training. And the anniversary party. But career-wise, things have really taken off between Brad's new office space, styling Shay Mitchell, and seeing the Details and InStyle pages in their final form. Woo-hoo! Let's see what wisdom we can glean from another visit to Brad World.

Low and Slow

There was a lot to learn about dog training from Caryl's visit. The key to teaching Brad and Gary's pup, Penelope, is to reward her for silence with a treat and some "low and slow" praise. Unfortunately for both Brad and Gary the low and slow part proved to be quite a challenge. On the plus side, watching them try to do it was completely adorable.

Frankly though the most obvious lesson was that Brad and Gary are terrible disciplinarians when it comes to Penelope. Brad is obsessed with her to the point that he enjoys her squeaky yawn that sounds like a haunted house door and spoons her to sleep each night. Gary enjoys breakfast each morning with Penelope on his lap. I think it's safe to say that any attempt to discipline their beloved Penelope will soon be left by the wayside.

Everything's Coming Up Rose

When times get tough, just down a bottle of rose. That's what Steven the party planner learned this week (and I happen to think that's a wonderful approach). This is evidently the gay man's version of grabbing a beer, but really any alcoholic beverage of your choice will probably do.

However there were tons of other little lessons packed into this scene.

1. Good food is the key to a successful party.
2. Chicken thigh has the most flavor of any part of the chicken.
3. Do not serve Gary chicken thigh. Chicken breast only.

Giving Good Face

Practicing your look of surprise for a big reveal is imperative. Not practicing may lead to you making a face that, as Gary put it, looks like "you're about to give someone a crazy blow job." So at the very least, should you not have time to practice, be sure to keep the mouth closed or covered during any sort of big surprise. Luckily for Brad he was then ready to see his Details spread after some training with Gary.

Sheer Terror with Coco Rocha

Brad dishes on his minor panic attack during Coco's fitting.

Let me start off by saying I love my new house so much! We have now been living in it for almost six months, and every day I pinch myself to see if it is real. I have been busy decorating with the help of our friend and interior designer, Sal Messina. The house is really starting to take shape and we are so happy here! Penelope especially!

I have been a big fan of Coco Rocha’s for many, many years. I have seen her walk in runway shows, pose like no other in photo shoots, and naturally follow her every move on Twitter and Instagram. When I got the call the she needed some help selecting her look for the premiere of her TV show The Face, I pretty much jumped up and down. I wanted her to have THE best choices to choose from, and I kid you not, when we were pulling we couldn't believe how many things were sheer, but we thought that would be right up Coco's alley. Boy was I wrong! I usually have a good gauge for what people are going to love, so when she said she didn't wear anything sheer, I almost passed out. One thing I have learned in this industry is that you cannot be part of the problem, you have to be part of the solution. So I presented all of the options that I thought were the strongest and went from there. We ended up finding options not only for her premiere, but also for press appearances.She stunned on the night of the premiere! It was a really amazing red carpet moment! Not to mention I have been doing A, E, I, O, U since we filmed in November, and it has changed my life! It was an absolute honor working with Coco. I adore her!

As if that wasn't enough excitement for this gay Canadian boy, I got a call from Noot Seear who is also Canadian, also a top model, and also an actress. She has launched an amazing line of headphones called FRENDS! They are fashion meeting function at its finest! She wanted the shoot to look high fashion, but also look like her, so it was a fine balance to match all of those things together. I wanted to show different styles to reflect the different types of women who would be wearing the headphones, so we had the bohemian girl, the indie girl, glamour girl, rocker girl, and girlie girl. It’s so fun to work with new clients and see their reaction to what you have pulled for them and want to see them in. Noot was so incredibly happy with the job we did, and the shots turned out AMAZING! It was a pleasure working with her and I wish her tons of success with her headphones!So much Canadian love! Can you handle it?

On next week’s episode of Brad World, we go to Dubai! It's NEXT LEVEL!
