First stop… I hit the Rock & Republic fashion show for Kohls where I wore the coolest red skinny jeans for 80$ and sat next to the hottest players on Gossip Girl: Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley, singer Ashley Simpson, and actress Molly Sims.
Next stop, I hit the tents at Lincoln Center to check out one of my favs Jill Stuart where Ramses Bardan of the NY Giants and I sat and checked out the rocker glam jewel toned looks, and lace cut out dresses. I spent the entire time explaining the allure of an expensive-looking woman to my new fashion bestie. Maybe someday he can repay me by teaching me football (and how to win a Superbowl)! HOT tip: I sprayed hair spray on my tights backstage to reduce static cling from my dress. Nice work, Alnett.
Directly after, I met my two girls and took them to the ultimate fashion closet, the Barbie dream closet, where we tried on virtual gowns. The girls fell in love with everything PINK all while posing with real “living” Barbie models.
Then the GRAMMY’S took me by storm with Fergie in orange lace, and blonde beach girl Rihanna in a backless gown that made the back the new cleavage.
For the men, CFDA winner, Michael Bastian showed us a sea of hot male models in the color purple, Charlie Brown sweaters, and proved the tailored old-English country man is still alive and well. Sport coats, tightly knotted ties and vivid socks peeking out of smokin slipper in needlepoint and velvet made the looks complete, even with the help of a bull dog in tow. At Alice and Olivia, Stacey Bendet takes whimsical girly to another level. With a bevy of killer hot ball gowns, high-waisted pants, sparkly cocktail dress, and with singers Matt and Kim in attendance and doing photos ops with me for Magnum, as in ice cream, the presentation was unexpected and definitely flirty.
My fashion moment was at JCrew, where head design honcho, Jenna Lyons, sent me a bright green sequin skirt, and iconic fashion street photog Bill Cunningham took pictures of me. Bright sequin is one of Spring 2012 biggest trends and the new yoga pant, for I made no excuses for wearing it at 9 am.
But I have to admit the highlight of the past few days was meeting Joan Rivers, who said I was her favorite REAL HOUSEWIFE. Talk about a compliment, and there was no punchline, just a hug. Phew!
