FOX celebrates the fusion of fashion and music with the star-studded, musical event FASHION ROCKS airing Sunday, Sept. 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The two-hour original special, hosted by Denis Leary, star of the hit FX series "Rescue Me," and taped during Fashion Week at the legendary Radio City Music Hall in New York City, features jaw-dropping performances and exclusive interviews with world-renowned fashion designers.
FASHION ROCKS explores the inextricable link between style and sound through the decades with musical appreciations, insight from music idols and fashion icons and "rockumentary"-style segments spotlighting designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren.
Kicking off with the Black Eyed Peas singing their hit, "Let's Get it Started," the concert portion of the special includes dazzling pairings � Avril Lavigne joins John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls on his hit, "Iris;" Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood accompanies Rod Stewart on classic favorites "Maggie May" and "Stay with Me;" and Usher performs with guitarist Dave Navarro and supermodel Naomi Campbell as his "Bad Girl." Also delivering brilliant performances are Alicia Keys, who trades in her piano for a fringe dress to shimmy to the '70s hit "Heartburn," and Mary J. Blige, who brings the audience to their feet with a spectacular rendition of Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart."
The all-new special also features introductions and special appearances by Jason Bateman, star of FOX's critically-acclaimed series ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, actress Denise Richards, fashion designer Stella McCartney, rock star Marilyn Manson, tennis aces Venus and Serena Williams and the Destiny's Child trio, Beyonc� Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
Created and executed by the Cond� Nast Media Group, publisher of the world's leading fashion magazines such as Vogue, GQ, W, Details and Glamour, FASHION ROCKS is produced by Ken Ehrlich, Emmy Award-winning producer of the Grammy Awards, and Richard Beckman, President of the Cond� Nast Media Group.
