1:31 PM: It’s a good day to be Ivana Trump: as there are no other celebrities here, the paparazzi have swarmed around her-I can’t even see in front of me because there are so many cameramen blocking my view…. Oh wait, I see another celeb. Heiress Casey Johnson stands up to pose for a few photographs. And just past Ivana, I see Ileana Douglas.

1:25 PM: At the Marc Bouwer Show. Just sat in my front-row seat. There was a bit of a wait just to get inside – they appear to be way off schedule. On my seat is a goody bag, but I don’t think I have to report these items to the IRS: a travel-size Aveda cleanser, a small tin of sugar-free Altoids, Creative nail polish in the shade Red Baroness and a CD of an episode of the newsmagazine show, In the Life which, the sleeve informs me, airs on Public Television.

11:45 AM: Right before the show begins, everyone in the front row is told to uncross their legs, to avoid tripping the models! It’s packed in here! Kristin C. Looks very California girl, with long blond extensions, frayed jeans and a halter top. Next to her, Carmen Electra looks like a 50’s housewife, with a double strand of Chanel pearls around her neck and red, red lips. And the show’s over!

11:31 AM: I am sitting facing Kristin Cavallari, who is next to Carmen Electra. Just to my left, across from me, is Kelly Rowland. The 11 am show still hasn’t started!

11:16 AM: I’m sitting in the front row at BCBG Max Azria and Carmen Electra is standing right in front of me being interviewed. Her hair is in a high ponytail and she’s wearing a pretty, strapless polka dot dress. Ooh! Sophia Bush just walked by, also with her hair in a ponytail.

magster on

I love Carmen. She has great style and looks great in this picture. I feel sorry for Dave.

jen on

her hair is a little too light, but she looks great. she proves that if you have a good body you will look good in anything & you don’t have to show a lot of skin. BRITTANY–start taking notes!!!!!

erika on

i agree that her hair is too light and that the “concept” of the outfit is very classy…black and white with polka dots with some red touches…however, i don’t think the dress is a flattering fit on her…the top part is like a big, shapeless bubble…

She looks GREAT! I love Carmen Electra, she is super HOTT and Looks so classy in this dress!

latina on

This picture doesn’t even look like Carmen Electra.. I think she looks terrible. What happened to Carmen after she separated from DAVE?? She’s dressing too boring and old.. come on.. dress a little more sexy like you use to.!

Carmen looks a little boring but I still love her.

Holly on

I’m sorry but Carmen established herself as rocker/groupie/porn star a long time ago…so what is she thinkin? that she can rreeeaally pull off this new classy, demure look all of a sudden?? Sporadic “Reinvention” is over-rated lately anyway.

andreina on

why do so many americans like to look like BETTY BOOP? its dumb looking.

andreina on

I totally agree with Holly… now all of a sudden she’s shy… please…what about her striptease workout video?!
