Book author and former Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell has another trick up her fashionable sleeve: She’s launching an outdoor furniture line.
Months after debuting her book, Full of Life: Mom to Mom Tips I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Pregnant, O’Dell, 43, is coming out with an aptly named Red Carpet line of outdoor furnishings.
“It is a high-end, outdoor furniture line worthy of the red carpet,” she says, “A-list furniture, so to speak.”
She compares the look of her designs to a beautiful woman, for instance, one dressed for a movie premiere. “Curvy, leggy, cutting-edge, classic – my line incorporates all these beautiful shapes and traits. I have often been asked, If I weren’t a broadcaster, what would I like to do, and design it is!”
Red Carpet by Nancy O’Dell makes its debut in early February at the World Market Center, in Las Vegas, and will be available in stores this spring.
Next up for O’Dell: She’s hosting the pre-show for VH1 at Friday’s Critics Choice Awards. Next month she’ll be in South Beach, Fla., co-hosting the PEPSI Super Bowl Fan Jam concert on Feb. 4 to help celebrate Super Bowl XLIV. Plus, O’Dell plans to announce her newest broadcasting project soon.
