Kelly Cutrone Is My Guru The Kell on Earth star is more than just a reality TV diva—she’s a spiritual leader. By Marisa MeltzerPosted Friday, Feb. 26, 2010, at 11:26 AM ET Kelly Cutrone at work. Kelly Cutrone, the plain-spoken head of a PR firm with a high-minded name, People’s Revolution, has spent the last few seasons berating her vacant employees Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port as a peripheral character on MTV’s reality soap operas The Hills and The City. Now, she has her own show on Bravo, Kell on Earth, which chronicles her life as a fashion publicist. Watching Cutrone admonish her idiotic underlings is psychic relief for the engaged TV fan: For once, everything you’d like to shout at the screen is being said for you by a woman who dresses exclusively in black and has the pallor of someone who eschews both under-eye concealer and sunlight. But Cutrone is not just a pedestrian reality TV bitch in the mold of evil Apprentice star Omarosa. She’s actually an earth mother/guru with a newly released book called If You [Read More...]
Cutrone from ‘The Hills’ discusses success in fashion industry Kelly Cutrone wears black almost every day. And Friday, when she came to speak at the Newhouse school, was no exception to the all black rule – though this time, the fashion maven was wearing an outfit from The Gap. When Cutrone arrived at Newhouse to speak, she was expecting an intimate, question-and-answer session with about 20 students. However, what the founder and CEO of fashion public relations firm People’s Revolution encountered was a room packed with fashion-conscience people waiting to hear her speak. The event was then moved to the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse III, which was filled with a mostly female audience. “She is the woman to know in the fashion business,” said Viviana Quevedo, a freshman communication and rhetorical studies major. “She’s someone to admire. You can tell that she has worked very hard to get where she is today; the sacrifices she makes to do what she does says a lot about her character as a professional.” While there was no gossip about her celebrity employees [Read More...]

Publicist Kelly Cutrone Launching “Electric Love Army” Sportswear Bravo Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone was already well-known as the founder of PR firm People’s Revolution before she earned national fame for trademark blunt comments on MTV’s “The Hills” and “The City,” as well as her own show “Kell on Earth,” but now it seems she’s jumping over to the other side with the launch of a new fashion line. The new sportswear label, The Electric Love Army, was created with with partner Robyn Berkley and Chris Burch, and will even boast its own freestanding stores, according to WWD. Cutrone described the line to the paper as “affordable and fun,” aimed at women between 15-32. The Electric Love Army apparently plans to play with pop culture references, with Cutrone using the cult classic film Fast Times at Ridgemont High as an example in her WWD interview: “You know that scene…where Phoebe Cates climbs out of the swimming pool and pops her bikini? That’s our girl.” Given the nature of Cutrone and her team at People’s Revolution, from the reality show, “Kell on Earth” to [Read More...]
15 Questions with Kelly Cutrone “If anyone really wanted to change the world, they’d bring in the fashion bitches,” writes Kelly Cutrone in her new book “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside,” to be released on Feb. 2. This piece of information might startle the Harvard crowd, who isn’t known for sartorial savvy. The book outlines her tumultuous rise from homelessness to the fashion elite and serves as a guide for navigating an alternative career path. Famous for being the boss from hell of Lauren Conrad on “The Hills” and Whitney Port and her cohorts on “The City,” Cutrone’s own show on Bravo premiered this Monday. I spent an afternoon with Kelly in the New York City office of People’s Revolution, the public relations firm that she founded. When I first met Kelly, I was carrying a cupcake. Her first words to me were “No one eats solid food anymore. That’s so 90s.” I immediately thought back to the episode of “The City” in which Kelly descends upon a young girl for being too skinny, and I realized that [Read More...]
