The Quickie Explanation: Celebrity Fashion show for charity at the M2 Lounge in Manhattan hosted by my mom’s favorite Scotsman and Bond actor, Sir Sean Connery.
Lot’s of celebrities, too numerous to mention wearing Kilts.(This was the longest fashion show I ever seen!) I would like to proudly note that I’m probably the only blogger with Yankee Legend Bernie Williams as my headlining picture! (I love the guy and he is one of the few celebrities I could name/remember from what seemed like an endless stream! Overload!)
Other celebrtities in attendance/walking in the show: the evil character from Gossip Girls, the guy on Fox with the big eye brows, Obama Girl, Michael Meyers (ok, I know him), the Geico caveman, some random Olympic dude,(oh wait, that’s me!) some really cool violinists who danced to name just a few i.e. like 1%.
I attended via invitation from Miss New York Leigh-Taylor Smith (Thanks 12:45:03!!) who was scheduled to walk in the show, but then got bumped this morning! (Bummer!)
We still had a good time and the show raised money for paralyzed war veterans in America and Scotland. Awesome!
Also in attendance, Rachelle Hruska from Guest of a Guestwho was one of the celebrity judges, (oh yeah they had like 15 celebrity judges also!) our friend, blogger Tia Walker, Liam McMullan, (whom I’m pretty sure crashed the runway since he wasn’t dressed up and wasn’t announced! lol) and many more! (READ BELOW! YIKES!)
