Claire’s Life: BET’s 2012 Rip the Runway Watch Party at Highland Park
By Claire

Happy Thursday!
So last night, Gabriel and Rae of, Gabi Fresh, and I got together to watch our spots on BET’s Rip the Runway:

Friends and family filled Highland Park to munch on chicken wings, sip on spirits, and wait to catch our moments on TV.

Since it was a sports bar, I decided to go for a sporty/spring vibe. I pulled out my Rag & Bone neon yellow jeans and my fave Diesel jean jacket (I always rock it with two YSL buttons I bought at the YSL exhibit in Paris–which I loved):

I kept the sporty vibe going with a pair of Alexander Wang Chloe sandals in blue (you may remember Rihanna wore them in red):

(I took a shoe picture with Marc Clark, who was rocking a pair of Jeremy Scott x Adidas sneakers). Inspired by this post, I painted my nails in a few coats of Essie’s Mint Candy Apple:

And finished everything off with an Alexis Bittar bracelet and CC Skye Crystal Angel Wing Necklace.

Then it was time to watch the show!

I was too busy screaming and hiding my face to actually watch myself–but from what I hear, I did ok! It was definitely fun to do–and I’d love to try my hand at TV again. After watching the show, we enjoyed the night, toasting to TV and trying new things:

Me with Fashion Bomb News Writer Jihan
Mecca from Pynk Mag and Artist Peter Hadar
Model Liris Crosse and Jerrell Horton

Bombshells Mika and Chantell

It was a fun night!
