(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — On Friday, May 16, 2008, “The Young and the Restless” launched an online fashion and lifestyle magazine, RestlessStyle.com, to go hand in hand with the launch of their in-show print magazine, RestlessStyle.
The new online website gives viewers the latest in runway trends, beauty pointers and coverage on the red carpet. The magazine also offers videos, polls, horoscopes and photo galleries. Content will run concurrently with upcoming “Y&R” storylines connected to RestlessStyle, run by Nicholas and Phyllis Newman (Joshua Morrow and Michelle Stafford) and Jack and Sharon Abbott (Peter Bergman and Sharon Case).
George Kotsiopoulous, current style director at C Magazine lends his expertise in fashion and style for the site and will also appear on the daytime drama as a fashion consultant. Alongside Kotsiopoulous, Peter McQuaid, a contributor to The New York Times, InStyle Magazine and The Los Angeles Times, will oversee and provide editorial content for RestlessStyle.com.
“Y&R” fans will have the opportunity to engage with some of the interactive features including a slideshow widget, which allows photos showing favorite fashions to upload onto the site. The widgets can be taken and embedded into viewers blogs, online social networks and their own websites. Fans are also allowed to customize their very own playlists from the five themes listed: New York Lifestyle, Hollywood Lounge, Summer Stylin, Paris Runway and of course Restless Style.
“The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Anytime on CBS.com. Check local listings.
