Oh My Marilyn!
Today on Design-Swag we are highlighting a forgotten culture brought back to life by Season Four of The Red Booth Show. This would not be possible of course for the hard work of Kimberly Quigley, an English born actress, producer, director and host of the California late night show. Her Marilynesque style fits right in with the giant retro red booth out of the bygone era. In some shots, you see James Dean props in the background, like Marilyn and Jimmy below.
Hello, she’s bringing sexy back in a classy way! She promotes Pinup Girl Clothing, more on that later.
Kudos to Kim For the Content and Achievements
The basis, (unscripted) is that Kim interviews and talks with actors, singers, bands, actresses — anyone hot, up and coming, or who may be someone soon may just appear here. What is amazing is that she created this idea herself, with the help of minimal sponsors and crowdfunding—wow. A little bird told us Kim originally had episodes shot in her garage, but by Season Three, had moved to a real soundstage. Imagine an indie show making it four seasons (and counting.) The show is aired throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and Ventura on KVMD every Saturday night @ Midnight, but you can tune in to the Red Booth YouTube Channel below if you don’t get that broadcast. Kim dubbs the show, “The show that exists without permission.” So this diva took on Hollywood herself, and won. She’s on the air! You go girl!

Now, the trending folks are not just featured on the show, they succumb to Kim and bare all. In our opinion, it reminds you that these stars are people just like us. Some episodes tug your heart strings. Recently, an interview with rapper ,JoneZen, opened up to Kim about his past battle with substance abuse. That episode discussed how he originally started in rap (now under record label touring with with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.) Is it her Marilyn-like style, or do they just feel comfortable in that big cushy booth?
