NEW YORK, July 14, 2006 � Celebrity event planner to the stars Preston Bailey brings the wedding dreams of a lucky Hollywood bride to life in Oxygen�s one hour reality special Preston Bailey: Mr. Fabulous, premiering Saturday, July 15 at 10 pm*. Even having planned such extravagant events as the wedding of Donald and Melania Trump, the stakes are big for Bailey�s latest multi-million dollar wedding: the bride is LisaRaye (UPN�s All of Us, Beauty Shop); her bridegroom is Michael Misick, the chief minister of the tropical paradise Turks and Caicos; and serving as their pastor is former Mayor of Atlanta and former Ambassador to the United Nations under President Jimmy Carter, Andrew Young. Add a celebrity guest list of the Hollywood elite and Bailey must plan the ultimate event that embodies splendor, opulence, and pageantry. And this couple is not afraid to think big.

When celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, Liza Minelli and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones want to celebrate the magical moments in their lives, Preston Bailey is their first call. Recognized as the world�s preeminent event designer, Bailey brings an incomparable level of creativity to each special occasion and was the perfect choice for LisaRaye�s lavish affair. He applies his expertise to produce this one-of-a-kind event with elegant surroundings that are sure to evoke awe-inspiring reactions.

In this special, Preston Bailey: Mr. Fabulous, LisaRaye wants a �fairytale� wedding complete with a castle, a dress with the largest bridal train known to mankind, a crystal carriage, and vows at sunset to be held on the groom�s home island. However, Preston and his team know that there is nothing fairytale-like about creating a fairytale wedding. It takes a lot of hard work, insider knowledge, managing of egos and behind-the-scenes negotiation.

The special gets a gritty look into what it takes to assemble a wedding that necessitates hiring a container ship to transport everything for the wedding to the tiny tropical island including a six foot wide cake, flying 35 event experts in from New York to execute, and even clearing a forest to build a new road to the reception.

�Preston Bailey is the best in the business � he�s the ultimate in planning a fantasy event,� says Debby Beece, President of Programming and Marketing, Oxygen. �Not only does Preston have creative vision, he has the ability to inspire. He taps into his client�s creativity and executes an event so grand it�s almost unimaginable. And he does it all while maintaining his graceful presence. He is a man Oxygen loves.�

For more than 24 years, Preston Bailey has been at the forefront of the event design industry. His mastery of over-the-top, one-of-a-kind events has earned him the reputation as the internationally celebrated event designer and wedding planner. Celebrity clients include Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, Donna Karan, Liza Minnelli, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Cosby, Matt Lauer, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. In addition, he creates custom designs for celebrity-style destination weddings at all sixteen Sandals and Beaches Resorts throughout the Caribbean. His numerous national television appearances include The Oprah Winfrey Show, Live with Regis & Kelly, CBS�s The Early Show, The Today Show, and Entertainment Tonight.

Now in its fifth printing, Preston�s first book, Design for Entertaining (Bulfinch Press, November 2002), serves as an inspirational sourcebook for events, weddings and other celebrations. His second book, Fantasy Weddings (Bulfinch Press, November 2004) has already become the standard for anyone who loves to see dreams come true and Preston will be unveiling his third book, Preston Bailey Inspirations, in Fall 2006.

Kathleen Minton Catapano serves as the executive producer of Preston Bailey: Mr. Fabulous. Catapano also has produced other Oxygen original series including Real Weddings from the Knot and Women & the Badge. Julina Tatlock serves as the executive in charge for Oxygen.
