"No monologue, no band, no sidekick, no sofa, just good conversation," Glenn O'Brien wrote below a selfie of Giselle and @LordRochester himself last night.

What would be a #humblebrag for most, was actually an announcement that the creator of cult classic TV Party will be reclaiming the talk show throne. O'Brien will host an interview series for Apple TV's brand-new fashion-focused network, Made 2 Measure (M2M), masterminded by entertainment group WME-IMG and launched earlier today.

While the original TV Party of the early 80s starred no-wave legends Basquiat and Blondie, the Warhol superstar's new show, Tea at the Beatrice, will feature conversations with digital heroes of 2016, including OG style blogger Man Repeller, and designers like Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez.

M2M's aim is to "create premium content that can bridge the gap between fashion, art and film." They plan to do so with a slate of six original series, a host of documentaries, fashion news, runway footage and strategic partnerships with WME-IMG's impressive talent roster.

So far, the network has only released a preview (a mashup of Kate Moss, runway footage, Lily-Rose Depp, and a whole lot of hashtags). But an announced documentary about the legendary 1973 French-American fashion showdown the Battle of Versailles, and plans to show seminal fashion films like the ever-relevant Who Are You, Polly Magoo? have us excited.

With the upcoming Apple-backed Met Ball theme "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," there's no doubt that M2M will also bring the once ultra-exclusive "fashion prom" to your fingertips come May. There's still time to get you hands on an iPhone 6s plus.
