So a few weeks ago I got a call, asking me to participate in BET’s annual Rip the Runway fashion show. Normally I’d be in Paris for Fashion Week, but decided to delay my travels a bit to seize the fantastic opportunity:
This year the network asked bloggers to take part, so tapped myself along with Gabi of GabiFresh.com and Rae and Gabe of StuffFlyPeopleLike.com to help hosts Selita Ebanks and Pooch Hall introduce the show’s different segments:
Chock full of fantastic urban designs, Rip the Runway is part fashion showcase, part concert, part party–and all fun. This year, brands like Brian Lichtenberg, Sammy B Designs, La Vie, and Monif C took center stage, alongside acts like Robin Thicke, Estelle, Wale, Diggy Simmons, and Lil Kim.
It was a long and full day of taping, but it was an amazing experience. I’m so grateful to BET for having me, and can’t wait to see how I did;)
For the occasion, I decided to go bright and bold, ditching my natural hair color in favor of spring ready blond (if you’ve been reading for a while, you could say I went back to my roots):
What do you think?
At any rate, it was an exciting night.
If you want to catch it, Rip the Runway will air Wednesday, March 21st at 10pm. Set your DVR’s!
