Aussie actress Brooke Chamberlain hosts Amazon Prime's Fashion News Live
Let's state the current situation for what it is; we find ourselves in an era in which fame sometimes precedes what was previously considered talent. Welding Social Media properly is a new talent that equals (at least in terms of public awareness and monetization) that of being a painter, writer, musician, etc.

There is, however, an intersection where the traditionally talented meet the current trend. For example, Brooke Chamberlain is a lauded actress who has also utilized her charm, wit, and charisma on camera for unscripted productions like “Fashion News Live.”

Chamberlain is one of those rare talents who receive critical praise for their acting ability while still appearing natural and engaged as she interviews the artists of the fashion world on this Amazon Prime production. Chamberlain is one of the most recent celebs enlisted to host this series (past celebrities include notables such as: Carmen Electra, Nigel Barker, Richie Rich, Nicky Hilton, Paris Hilton, Lauren Conrad, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Michael Douglas, Russell Simons, Hilary Duff, Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner to name a few).

Brooke was flown around the world to exotic locations like Milan, Paris, and Tel Aviv to discuss the latest creations and trends from designers and famous members of the industry. Brooke’s enthusiasm and engaging personality was the catalyst for manifesting the energy in these conversations.

While she is talented, personable, and loved by the camera, these are not the only reasons Chamberlain was selected by Amazon Prime to host the show; her affinity and association with fashion is long established. At sixteen years of age, Brooke started her own fashion label (“Chamberlain”) which was sold to the local stores near Byron Bay, Australia and in the local markets. She followed this through later earning a degree in fashion and textiles. When Amazon Prime informed the actress/host that she would be travelling to enchanting cities like Milan, Paris, and Tel Aviv to converse with fashion luminaries…she was instantly on board. Brooke asserts that hosting is not that different from her normal “day job” of acting in films.

She communicates, “As an actress, you always find a way to place yourself into the character. It’s not about just speaking your lines, you have to listen and feel what the partner in your scene is communicating rather than just waiting to speak again. Hosting a show like this is about speaking from a place of interest and knowledge but even more so about listening. I’ll admit that I truly love conversation though. My mother has always said that I could hang out with kids on the streets or have dinner with the queen and know exactly what to say…and I’d have to agree with that. I think it comes from a place of loving people and sincere interest.” 

Brooke admits that being interested in the fashion celebs she interviewed was easy for her. The UK’s John Richmond is hailed as designer to the world’s most famous rock stars. He has dressed icons including Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and an ongoing list of music rock’s most prestigious names. As a longtime admirer of his work, Brooke describes his enthusiasm and passion as palpable during their interview. Chamberlain conversed on camera with Portuguese model Sara Pinto Sampaio who is perhaps best known for being a Victoria's Secret Angel. In addition to holding the title of  Beauty Ambassador for Moroccanoil, Sampaio has appeared on the world’s leading fashion publications such as GQElleVogueGlamour and Sports Illustrated. Numerous points of common interest were evident during Brooke’s interview with award-winning actress Abby Cornish (SAG Award winner for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, winning two). The host relates, “Abby was an absolute delight to interview. Her fun, free spirited personality really showed. She was kind and had a lovely/easy going nature. She’s an Aussie so of course we bonded over our love for Australia and our sarcastic humor.”

For those viewers who are lukewarm admirers of the fashion industry, there’s more than enough beauty present in the romantic locations to which Fashion New Live travels with Brooke in tow. Milan, Paris; the charm of these world famous locations are the ideal setting for the show. Each contains its own identity and charm but Brooke concedes that one city stood out for her during her tenure as host of the programs. She relates, “It had always been a dream to visit Israel; the fact that I was able to host in the beautiful city of Tel Aviv for my first international hosting job was very surreal.

Tel Aviv is such a fun, young city and filled with so much life. The fashion was unique and I felt as though they really encouraged young designers to be free and design the way they wanted to which made each show so unique and different from the other. Tel Aviv fashion week probably had the most diversity between the designers, which I really enjoyed. It was inspiring seeing so many young designers showing the world their creations. I loved hearing what each designer had to say. It was a fascinating experience and this definitely grew my affinity for hosting and my passion for being in front of the camera. There’s something about acting and hosting that really makes you feel alive.”
