The Reality of Fashion The Reality of AIDS Recap
The Reality of Fashion The Reality of AIDS that took placed February 9th in the Altman Building NYC stayed true to the cause. The Runway show brought celebrity from all over to walk the runway for a good cause. With 300,000 people infected with the AIDS virus, the show raised awareness on this devastating epidemic. Brainchild Monique Tatum CEO of Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR wore a beautiful turquoise blue gown opened the show with a speech about why the show was so important to her. She told us a touching story about her Father that died from HIV when she was only twelve.
Some of the Star studded Celebrity divas that rocked the runway were Lil Kim- Dancing With The Stars, Janice Dickinson- Supermodel, Ramona Rizzo- MobWives, Tracy Dimarco- Jerseylicious, Tiffany” New York” Pollard, Jessica Ramona, Alex McCord- The Real Housewives Of NYC, Deena Nicole Cortese-Jersey Shore, Drita D’Avanzo- Mobwives, Courtney Robertson- The Bachelor, Leslie Birkland – Big Rich Texas, Keenyah Hill- Top Model, Karlie Redd- Love and Hip Hop ATL and Carissa Rosario- ABC & The Big Time.
Designer Dominique Auxilly collection was the highlight. She has “A” list celebrity clients and her pieces are creative, sexy and captures the true essence of the female body. The full Hall gave shouts and cheers for their favorite Celebrity that strut their own signature walk. My only complaint would be, it would have been better if someone announced their names and titles.
After the show the Celebrities mingled and took picture in the green room. The only Diva that was not in the mood to be nice was Lil Kim who must have felt she was above the rest and locked herself in a private room. Shout out to my hair sponsor Melissa and her Lozo’s virgin hair team, who were also one of the sponsors of the event providing the beautiful hair the celebrity, wore.
