TOMMY TV: Tommy Hilfiger and George Lois put together the images, events, people and places that helped define the United States in their photography book "Iconic America: A Roller-Coaster Ride Through Eye-Popping Panorama of American Pop Culture" (Ernest Hemingway, Lean Cuisine, Route 66 and Deep Throat are just a few of the Americana icons included). Now Hilfiger is bringing the book to life on the small screen, producing a one-hour television special. The show will take Israeli-born model Bar Rafaeli and one-named Rives, a poet featured on HBO's "Def Poetry Jam," across the country to tour the best of American beauty, fashion, design and food. This week the duo filmed at Relish Diner in Williamsburg, N.Y., and at the South Orange, N.J., home of a Columbia High School student prepping for prom with her friends. Other filming locations included Kansas' Barbie Museum and Boston's Candy Heart Necco factory. The show will air on Bravo this fall. — S.D.S.
