Richie Rich Fashion Show

Last weekend my handsome boyfriend modeled in a charity fashion show for Human Rights Campaign Long Island. Needless to say, I had a worthy excuse to get dressed up and attend a glamorous event with a great cause! 
On the red carpet I found myself ambushed by designer Richie Rich, who grabbed my arm and begged me to walk in his fashion show. I think I said "no" about 10 times, but his dogged insistence (and the fact that it was for charity) wore me down- eventually I agreed. Believe it or not, things like this happen to me often courtesy of my 6'2" height.
So off to hair, makeup and wardrobe I went... my hair was bobby-pinned and hair-sprayed relentlessly; my face was painted in thick fuschia makeup and glitter. My dress, which Richie said was inspired by Kim Kardashian, left me feeling more like the statue of liberty on psychedelic stardust crack! I don't see Kim being a fan!


A laundry-list of celebrities have walked in Richie Rich shows and even more have worn his designs. Personally, I find his clothes to be a bit much for my sensibilities (as you can see from these pictures). Richie Rich is definitely not my aesthetic of choice, but in a fashion show his collections are fun. Who wants to walk the runway in something plain anyway?! 
What do you think of the look?
