What is your favorite fashion moment and why?
Sarah: When Naomi Cambell fell off of the catwalk in front of hundreds and gracefully got back up, laughed it off and carried on.
What was your most cringeworthy model moment?
Sarah: I had to run up and down a beach with a huge blow up whale…. then i had to tango with the whale and kiss the whale…. so embarrassing!
Wild card….. anything you would like to add.
Sarah: My inspiration is my grandma, she’s 80 and takes such pride in her appearance she always looks amazing! She has had cancer 3 times…. she’s a survivor.
Lauren Conrad :: Los Angeles Fashion Week Fall 2008March 20, 2008
Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, Marilyn Monroe would be wearing Lauren Conrad were they alive today. Her collection for Los Angeles Fashion Week hearkened back to the Hollywood of yesteryear with a low plunging v-neckline olive mini-dress, a little black dress that had a similar neckline with sexy classic slit, a floral print v-neckline dress (down to the midsection), a black strapless dress with a white bow all reminded us of what Hollywood used to be before pantyless brats started hopping out of cars. This was style, class and grace all rolled into one. Conrad’s collection did something most during LA Fashion week and remarkably others during the fashion week season did not do: recreate various eras in Hollywood. Conrad showed a depth of understanding when it came to colors. Using monochromatic hues on dresses, monochromatic hues on floral dresses while also using a palette of rose, olives, peach and others, she made this show a joy to see and more so one to covet for the fall season.
Nicky Hilton :: Los Angeles Fashion Week Fall 2008March 18, 2008
Someone in the Hilton family has talent and her name begins with Nicky. From the checkered skirt to thebowl hats and the striped tie cardigan Hilton is showing that for a newcomer her talent is the real thing. Hilton displayed a diverse collection of red leather jacket, the aforementioned cardigans and a chekered 3/4 coat. An outfit that consisted of a bowl hat wool short shorts and riding boots seemed very LA in style but then Hilton surprised with a 1940s-like German leather car coat. There was definitely an equestrian feel to the show and we’re not complaining. Great outing by Hilton.

The Satoshi Date Spring 2008 collection in photos from London Fashion week this past September 2007. Date’s collection consisted primarily of halter dresses, convertible shawls and knits. The end of the show featured an interesting moment as the sign for his show was pulled down as he came out. Life for an emerging designer can be difficult.
