My reign as Miss Nevada

LA Fashion Week- A Photo Blog

When the designer of Bettie Page Clothing asked if I wanted to be one of her models at LA Fashion Week, it took me about all of two seconds to reply, “No Duh.”

While it’d been YEARS since I’d walked a runway (and never one of that magnitude), it was a new adventure and I had no intentions of saying no. So I hopped on a plane and headed to the LA Live Event Deck, ready to WORK IT.

And since a picture is worth more words than I’m willing to write on the matter, I give you a gallery of my experience. Can you see my nerves? Or my concentration as I try to contain myself from doing spins down the runway?

      Aren’t they super cute? I feel like I should be going to a Sunday brunch or something in them!

      It was certainly a lot of fun. :)

    Whenever I picture the runway, I think of those crazy costumes you see in magazines. But your outfits are cute and classy! You totally rock them– great job!

      Thank you, Vy! Trust me, there was plenty of that going on as well. But I really enjoyed being a part of such a fun and flirty show. I felt like I could have fun with her designs and be myself. It was a great way to begin my time at LA Fashion Week :).
