Montreal, September 13, 2023 – September 20th marks the debut of our original production called “J’aime ton style“. Every Wednesday at 9pm, viewers tuning in will enjoy an ELLE Fictions exclusive, where Quebec’s most beloved celebrities reveal their personal style, discuss fashion, reveal icons that have inspired their choices, and showcase some of their most memorable looks. Produced by Zone3 and hosted by Marie-Josée Gauvin, the show will be as warm, friendly, and story-filled as a night spent chatting about fashion (and life) with your best friends.
Every 30-minute episode begins with a fashion-inspired interview, followed by the guest star presenting five pieces from their wardrobe that have a particular backstory, or truly define their style. While exhibiting these items, the celebrity-guest will tell viewers about finding a particular piece, the design work behind it, or the event where the garment made a splash.
During the second half of the program, fashion expert and contributor Madeleine Goubau will provide information and critique on the guest artist’s favorite fashion icon. Viewers will enjoy insights on the fashion influence of mythical icons like Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Madonna.
Every episode ends with a visit from a stylist that typically works with the guest, to discuss striking looks they’ve put together over the years (some strange, some amusing) and how they’ve worked to define and communicate the person’s identity. The show ends with fun and games, when the guest and stylist play a game of “Love it or leave it” which involves host Marie-Josée Gauvin unveiling surprise past looks, and having each of them simultaneously vote on loving, or leaving the style.
FUN ON SET
Marie-Josée Gauvin,also the show’s creator, is a passionate fashion enthusiast who loved connecting with guests while filming the episodes. “There are stories, memories and emotional ties to the clothing that we wear. Discussing fashion and how it made us feel can be a true bonding experience, plus the nostalgia that fashion evokes helps us discover each guest through a different lens.” says Gauvin, adding “It took a show like J’aime ton style to get Anouk Meunier to showcase a pair of pajama boxers that she acquired in a rather unique way, and for Alex Perron to share his story about a garment from the Star Wars collection. You can’t make this stuff up!”
