TV’s Newest, Hippest Lifestyle Maven Showcases Her Design Skills for "The View"
WASHINGTON, DC -- 11/23/2004 -- Many are surprised to learn Libby Langdon, the graceful fashion model, soap opera vixen and Hollywood actress -- with dozens of TV appearances and films to her credit -- is more handy than most men with a level, paint brush and nail gun.
The latest finished product of her tool dexterity will be featured Tuesday, Nov. 23rd during a segment on ABC’s “The View.” The home of one Philadelphia family, the Pierandozzis, winners of an on-air contest, will undergo a design invasion. “The Reveal,” as Landgon says, will show the exciting moment when they see their brand new, rustic Tuscan kitchen.
“It was a full gut: new wide-plank wood floors, golden oak cabinets against warm, russett walls mixed with creamy, marble countertop tile, soft recessed lighting and a peninsula bar with custom molding. The room is tricked out with all-new black appliances with everything from under cabinet television/DVD player, Italian earthenware platters and dual-temperature wine cooler,” Langdon said this week above the staccato hum of her assisting crew’s power tools.
The High Point, North Carolina native is a host of the new home makeover program, “Design Invasion,” which airs daily on the FOX network. On that program, Langdon arrives early on the doorstep of an unsuspecting homeowner. After ushering them out, she completely overhauls and transforms the dwelling’s most unappealing room within 10 hours.
Langdon shares her niche of converting chilly, minuscule rooms making them appear warm and palatial with do-it-yourself skills and modest budgets. “Due to the time constraints of television taping, I’m somewhat limited to using in-stock materials found in any neighborhood home improvement story like Lowe’s, Target, Home Deport and Pier 1,” she said. “There’s simply not enough time for special order items.”
“I want to show people how to create a warm, inviting comfortable space with ideas and tools that are within everyone’s reach.” The daughter of a home-furnishing executive and an interior designer mother, Langdon trekked to New York at age 15 to model and later attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her career blossomed leading to several lucrative modeling assignments, TV commercials and a recurring role on NBC’s soap opera “Another World.”
That work led to regular guest appearances on “The Practice” and “Law and Order SVU” and numerous big-screen movies most recently “The Door in the Floor,” starring Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger; opposite Al Pacino in “Chinese Coffee,” “Sidewalks of New York” with Ed Burns and “Shallow Hal” with Gwyneth Paltrow.
Besides the acting, modeling and interior design, Langdon boasts gourmet cooking and event planning skills as well. “I relish new challenges, I’m not afraid to try new things,” she said. “If anything, I love what I’m doing now, I get to be myself on TV and share in the excitement of the individuals and families I touch. It’s a blast!”
