CCSF Midnight Metropolis Runway Show 5/18 at Ruby Skye in SF!

Vanna White 2 Vanna White 1

What a show Midnight Metropolis turned out to be!  I arrived and found that the designer I was modeling for had no outfit for me, so a couple students took me on a shopping excursion, which lasted two hours and we wound up going to five big stores.  We finally found a red dress with slits and a halter at Forever XII and then rushed back to the club so I could do hair and make-up.  Since I was not going to walk in the show, the fashion crew decided to make me a greeter and sell canvas fashion dept. bags up front with Diane Greene, the head of the department.  Later, I went on stage and did the raffle with the main host and supermodel/runway coach Charleston Pierce as a Vanna White character.  I had fun walking up and down the runway beforehand and getting glamour shots!  The show went well.  There were about 52 models walking the catwalk as well as some Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet dancers performing for part of the show.  I went through quite a fire storm that day, but when things fall apart, they are really just falling into place.  The end result was truly magical!

 

80s Cyndi Lauper Runway Show at the City College Ocean Campus Cafeteria!

It was a neon kind of day at the CCSF Ocean Campus cafeteria, where people from my modeling class and some new models stepped up on blocks to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!”  They gave me a Farrah Fawcett wavy hairdo and candy pink lips and blue eyeshadow.  The first outfit consisted of American Apparel spray-on mint pants with blue and white stripes on the sides, a denim wrap-around jacket with a hood, colorful bangles, and clear lens purple statement glasses!  Statement clear lens glasses are seriously in right now!  The last outfit consisted of a black pleather F21 skirt and black faux leather jacket, a creamsicle orange tank top, aviators, and Vivienne Westwood bright blue pumps.  It was hot as hell outside, but we had quite a successful show!  Stay tuned for the next City College fashion show happening next Tuesday same time same place!
