New York Times best-selling author and the winner of the Fan Favorite award at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, Giuliana Rancic is an entertainment journalist, author, entrepreneur, fashion designer and beauty expert with over 3.5 million devoted followers on Twitter and 10 million followers across her social media platforms.
She is the co-star of E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team and has been on the red carpet for every mega-event in the entertainment industry (Oscars, Grammy Awards, Golden Globes) interviewing the stars and getting breaking Hollywood scoop as well as fashion tips, diet and fitness advice, travel tips and all things pop culture.
Giuliana recently created her own signature brand of wine, Xo, G. It’s unique in that four single serve shatter-proof cups make up one bottle. It can be found at Walmart and other large retailers across the country and Canada. It is launching in other international territories in 2016 and was recently voted one of the top selling new wine brands of 2015. Giuliana launched her own clothing line, G by Giuliana, on HSN – the most successful clothing line debut on HSN in 2012 and won the highly coveted HSN Best Brand Launch award. Three years in, G by Giuliana has become one of the most successful clothing brands on HSN, as well as the highest grossing apparel brand on HSN.com.
In April 2015, her highly anticipated memoir, Going Off Script was released by Random House and made several lists on the highly coveted New York Times Best Sellers List. In 2006, Rancic released her highly-praised debut book, Think Like A Guy: How to Get a Guy By Thinking Like One. It is a practical and funny handbook of rules on landing the man of your dreams. In 2010, Rancic released her second book, I Do, Now What?, published by Random House. Giuliana co-authored the book with her husband, Bill Rancic.
In 2013, Rancic created “Fab-U-Wish,” a program to grant fashion, beauty and celebrity-themed wishes to women battling breast cancer. This program is just one aspect of her ongoing mission to help those going through hardships to find happiness and a positive outlook on life. Others charitable initiatives include The Pink Agenda, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Operation Smile, Dress For Success, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls in Chicago and the Children’s Miracle Networks.
In 2002, Giuliana joined E! News as a correspondent and in 2005 became solo anchor and managing editor for the show, taking it from the lowest rated show on the network to number one…incredibly within one year. Giuliana recently retired from her role as anchor on E! News to focus on her clothing line, wine company, her charity, as well as other endeavors in television and digital.
Giuliana’s recent awards include “Fan Favorite” at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, HSN’s 2013 “Brand of the Year” award for her clothing line G by Giuliana, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s “Caring Is Sexy Award,” “Sexiest Mom” from Victoria’s Secret "What Is Sexy?" Awards, “Beautiful Humanitarian” award from Professional Beauty Association, the “Ellen Stovall Award” from Lilly Oncology and NCCS and Operation Smile’s 2011 “Universal Smiles” award.
Rancic is a force both on-camera and off but her remarkable success didn’t come easily. She is a true result of “The American Dream” and an inspiration to people, both young and old. She was born in Naples, Italy, in a modest neighborhood, and moved to the United States when she was a little girl. Her love affair with television journalism began before she could even speak English – her parents couldn’t afford a tutor, so she learned the language by watching TV. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in journalism from American University. While in attendance, Giuliana worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering a number of stories related to the Pentagon, Supreme Court, White House and State Department. She lives in both Chicago and Los Angeles with her husband, Bill and their son, Duke.
“Giuliana and Bill were otherworldly amazing! They were an absolute a dream to work with and were pros in everything they did. Giuliana was simply spectacular in co-hosting Leadercast 2014. She was prepared and delivered a flawless performance for our audience. Bill’s interview on stage added tremendous value to our event and provided content in line with our theme of Beyond You. They both were critical components of making Leadercast 2014 a raving success. We are beyond thrilled with Giuliana and Bill and now count them part of the Leadercast family!”
Real, authentic and down-to-earth are just a few of the words our guests used to describe Giuliana Rancic after she spoke at our women’s event. Giuliana’s honest discussion about her health challenges and her genuine passion for finding happiness even in life’s toughest moments inspired the entire room.
