The Secret to Success

Episode 1: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor breaks down Brad's best pearls of wisdom.

I love Brad. There I said it. He's cute and funny and wears amazing clothes and has a loving, hilarious, and handsome boyfriend. Also he reaches up Keri Hilson's (and other celebs') skirts as part of his job. Brad Goreski is living the American dream. Or at least my version of it.

So as we enter this Brad, Brad World together, watching the young fashionisto navigate his way through the tricky world of styling, I think there are lessons to be learned. So let's see what wisdom Brad's trials, tribulations, and triumphs provided this week.Muscle Your Way to the Top

To succeed in the fashion world, one must be a "styling warrior." And by this Brad means you need to get yourself to the gym. When all your best purses and couture gowns fail, the only things you have left to sell yourself are those bulging biceps showcased when you carry garment bags. As Brad astutely notes, "If people aren't going to hire me for my styling, at least they're going to hire me for my cute thighs and my cute ass." Amen.

Give Good Face(s)

Brad only backed up Tyra's Top Model insistence that models deliver a number of looks for a photo shoot. Brad shared his go-to poses -- sexy face, surprised face, over-the-shoulder, kitty cat (my personal fave), and last but not least, just plain gorgeous. Diversity is clearly the key to success in a photo shoot. That and bonding with the photographer over the hardships of growing up gay. 

Sole Man

Shh! Brad has revealed one of his cardinal styling secrets -- if you're going to invest in any piece, go with good shoes. The perfect pair of kicks kicks up the style quotient of an outfit. A pair of (prefereably shiny or studded) sneakers will jazz up something as simple as jeans and a t-shirt. You can see it all in this clip. And by see it all I also mean semi-nude male models. (Have I convinced you to watch it yet?)

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!
