SUNDANCE CHANNEL CELEBRATES FASHION WEEK, FASHION ICONS AND THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS DURING SEVEN NIGHTS OF STYLE-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING AIRING FEBRUARY 7 - 13

Original Documentaries About Fashion Game-Changers Hubert De Givenchy, Kate Moss And David Bailey And The Premiere of "Love/Lust" Premiere As Part Of February's FULL FRONTAL FASHION

New York, January 27, 2011 -While the world's top designers unveil their latest creations at New York Fashion Week, Sundance Channel will present its own version of a catwalk with primetime airings of series, documentaries and feature films that satisfy the passion for fashion. As part of the network's seven nights of style-oriented FULL FRONTAL FASHION programming airing February 7-13, Sundance Channel will premiere three brand-new, documentaries about three fashion legends - designer Hubert de Givenchy, model and style icon Kate Moss, and photographer David Bailey and will debut its new original series about hot topics, "Love/Lust", with an episode dedicated to a true wardrobe heroine, the Little Black Dress.

"Our portraits of Kate Moss, Hubert de Givenchy and David Bailey deliver a fresh angle on three talents who fundamentally changed fashion, each in their own way making it more modern and independent," said Sarah Barnett, EVP and General Manager, Sundance Channel. "These films, along with the ravishing story of the Little Black Dress make for a week of television that we hope is as entertaining and eye-opening as the shows themselves."

Blending evocative visual elements with the perspectives of professional commentators and public personalities, "Love/Lust" delivers an entertaining and definitive account of how life's cultural innovations progressed from novelty to ubiquity. The inaugural episode stitches up the story of The Little Black Dress (Tuesday, February 8th at 10:00pm), revealing how a series of events - not to mention the formidable Coco Chanel - helped transform an emblem of rebellion into a wardrobe warhorse. It's a story punctuated with colorful commentary of numerous fashion insiders, including designer Vera Wang; author and Barneys New York creative ambassador Simon Doonan; and renowned fashion historian Valerie Steele, the Director and Chief Curator of the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Subsequent episodes of "Love/Lust" continue the stylish inquiry with episodes devoted to the bikini, high heels and make-up.

Nicola Graef's Kate! The Making of an Icon (Tuesday, February 8th and 9:00pm) explores the unique, enduring star power of model Kate Moss, who was discovered at age 14 and whose small stature, androgynous beauty and sex-drugs-and-rock-and-roll frankness ushered in new standards of beauty in the 1990s. Seeking out those who have worked with Moss, written about her and been inspired by her - a cohort that includes not just photographers like Albert Watson but also artist Chuck Close and filmmaker Mike Figgis - Graef looks at all internal and external elements that aligned to make Moss far more than a mannequin.

J�r�me de Mizzolz's David Bailey: Four Beats to the Bar and No Cheating (Wednesday, February 9th at 10:00pm) catches up with the brilliant, charismatic photographer who brought the energy and sex appeal of 60's Swinging London to the staid precincts of fashion magazines, and who was the model for the hip, playboy photographer in Antonioni's Blow Up.

Karim Zeriahen's Monsieur Hubert de Givenchy (Thursday, February 10th at 10:00pm) delivers a bounty of dynamic anecdotes and images as it sits down with the great French designer, who stunned and scandalized Paris's haute couture community in the late 1950s with his vision for modern dressing. Still sparkling and debonair in his early 80s, Givenchy looks back on a career that spanned couture's golden age and included a fabled collaboration and friendship with actress Audrey Hepburn.
