‘Anchor Baby’ Actor and model Sam Sarpong recently joined the cast of Fashion 411 as co-host. Sarpong joins fellow presenters Diona Vaughan, Courtney Stewart, and Erika Garcia Rojas to give viewers and listeners the 411 on what’s trending in the fashon world.
Fashion 411 is online network Black Hollywood Live’s (BHL), number 1 weekly series.
Black Hollywood Live is the world’s first online broadcast network dedicated to African American entertainment news. BHL programming features inside information, insightful commentary and in-depth interviews with Hollywood’s biggest stars and influencers.
BHL chose Sarpong due to his extensive fashion credentials. In 2011, Mens Fashion magazine named him as one of the top 10 male models in the world and Fashion Group International named him one of the 75 most influential people in fashion.
He has been the face of famous brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, Ed Hardy and Ben Sherman and is featured in the major campaigns of two international brands, iconic “Boy London” and “Guess Denim”. In addition, Sarpong has been named as “Brand Ambassador” for Nelson Mandela’s 4664 fashion.
Next month, the BEFFTA will present him with the “Icon In Fashion” award in London. This prestigious award recognizes individuals with over a decade of excellent work in fashion.
Of his new job with BHL, Sarpong says, “With BHL and Fashion 411 my fashion fan base now has a place where they can hear a male perspective on what celebs are wearing, which designers are hot and what’s trending. I love my cast mates, we have great chemistry. I also wanted to come on board because Maria Menounos is such a smart business woman, anything she does is always successful.”
Black Hollywood Live’s Fashion 411 show airs live Fridays and is available for download the next day on iTunes and BlackHollywoodLive.com.
Sam Sarpong is the brother of British TV presenter June Sarpong.
