Denim-clad Flaunt magazine makes for a riveting read
LATimes - over 4 years
"Flaunt" magazine's July issue, on newsstands now, is all about denim from cover-to-cover -- including the cover, which is actually a piece of the humble working-class fabric itself emblazoned with the image of model Claudia Schiffer.  The fabric wrap is actually an advertisement for Guess, the L.A.-based label that's celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, but for some reason that doesn't make it any less cool. Maybe that's because it gives the issue a sense of permanence unique to a periodical. And maybe it's because, as theme issues go, Flaunt, which is headquartered in Los Angeles, hasn't just phoned it in content-wise for the denim issue, and the magazine is filled with the kind of content that denim heads, indigo aficionados and five-pocket freaks of every stripe will want to have at their fingertips (or at least on their bookshelves) for a long time to come. There are brand and people profiles (including a look at the deep denim roots behind the soon-to-launch Koral Los ...

    More Details Hide Details Bach heard about the audition for The Dukes of Hazzard through her husband. When she arrived there, she found the producers were looking for a Dolly Parton-lookalike; despite not looking like what they were searching for, she was hired on the spot. One of the earliest costume ideas from the producers was that she wear a tight white turtleneck, go-go boots and a poodle skirt, but Bach asked if she could bring her own outfit, which was a homemade T-shirt, a pair of cut-off denim shorts and high heels. Bach had concerns about the appropriateness of the cut-off shorts at first, saying she could not wear them in a restaurant scene. When prompted by the producers to visit a restaurant across the street, Bach found the waitresses were wearing "little miniskirts that matched the tablecloths!". She starred on that show, opposite Tom Wopat, John Schneider and James Best.
