Simonetta Lein is the new Entertainment’s Fashion Icon. Read her interview below!
- Were you nervous to step outside of your comfort zone of fashion to enter the world of television?
I began being in front of cameras when I was 16. I actually started paying my bills very young as an actress. Then social media took off and it allowed me to create a name for myself that brought me to starting The Wishwall TV Show, aired through FNL Network on Amazon Prime and Apple TV and now The Simonetta Lein Show Via SLTV. I have guests such as Bob Saget, Jodi Sweetin, Tommy Chong, Jay Shetty, Leon, Kim Sledge of The Sister Sledge and many more. We are over 40 million views and counting.
- What does fashion mean to you in terms of entertainment? Is it more personal for you or more about sending a message to the outside world?
It gives a message to the outside world that through fashion, you can truly express your inner self.
- What has fashion done for the entertainment industry? Do you feel an outfit can communicate an entire story?
The entertainment industry owes a lot to fashion as it is through looks and outfits that the image gets delivered to the public. It brought me to be recognized as one of the top 5 Fashion influencers in the world by Forbes, one outfit at a time.
- What do you look for in a piece before you decide to wear it and make it part of your story?
I plan everything ahead thinking about what is the mood of the photoshoot or video interview or the episode for the TV show. I like to work with the same team when possible, so I want to thank Raphael Amabile, my executive producer of Ausonia Partners for making sure that everything happens behind the scenes, Kate Massih, my production manager for making sure that it all goes smoothly, Messiah Jones and Jasmine Smith respectably for my hair and makeup style and James Clark our booker producer.
Each and every one of them makes sure that my business comes to light. Only the teamwork makes it possible.
