We've had a really off winter this year, with mostly warm weather and then huge (for Miami) dips in the temperature, and Friday was one of those nights. The runway was set up along the ocean's edge, and the wind was really blowing! It was also raining, to boot, and super chilly! The girls must have been freezing on the catwalk.
I was really excited for this event, because apart from being a cool concept, the hosts for the show were Giuliana and Bill Rancic and Lauren Conrad. I'm a reality show junkie (guilty pleasure x's 100) and I love those guys. Despite the media preview being cancelled, we were still able to get some great photographs from the pit, and mingle inside the media tent with some really cool people.
The highlight of my night? Meeting the lovely and patient Lauren Conrad. She posed for pictures and was continuously gracious while she was basically mobbed for photographs. Also, kuddos to her hairstylist, Kristen Ess who was on hand to tame any Miami humidty-imposed hair issues that may have popped up.
Lauren Conrad wore a black jumpsuit by Camilla and Marc, which was stop-in-your-tracks stunning. The back had really cool criss cross detailing.

I thought this event was really well executed considering the inclement weather: yummy light bites, full bar, a jazz-handy model coordinator and some pretty cool goodie bags...there was also zero hassle to get in, which is always appreciated (unlike the total cluster, and debacle at the H&M opening on Lincoln Road a couple of months ago)
Thank you to Jordan Shelton of Golin Harris PR for the great communication and for my invite. Well done, guys!
