CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Runway Show in L.A.

While Beth was in LA she did a few runway shows. One of them was for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. She walked for both Pamela Love and Joseph Altuzarra. It was hard to find any pictures of her from the shows, this was all I could find floating around the internet.

Beth was excited that she OPENED the show with a look for Joseph Altuzarra and he chose her to accompany him on his walk out on the stage.

He was also the Winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Challenge.

Being in the show and having her hair done by world famous hair designer Frederic Fekkai landed Beth her picture in the January issue of Vogue:

Here’s one of the pictures of Beth in Vogue, there is also 1 more small one of her in the Pamela Love look.

And here is the video of the runway show that Beth did in LA. You may see a fleeting image of her right after Pamela Love speaks, then the video ends with the same picture that made it into Vogue.

Watch for Beth at :58 (I think that’s her) and again at 2:46

Beth’s first runway show in NYFW

Beth’s first ever show in New York was in the Richard Chai show. I LOVE this picture, she looks stunning. I think she wore the best dress in the line.

Yay! I found a video that included Beth, she is about 3rd from the end, right before the girl with the pink hair.

You can also see another video feed at Thread NY, where if you look closely you can see Beth walk by. But the exciting thing about this article is they used the picture of Beth for the story.

HighBall Halloween

Beth’s friend Stanley was asked to design a outfit for the Young Designers runway show going on at HighBall Halloween in the Short North, and Stanley asked Beth to be his model. So we headed down to the Short North to watch all the excitement. Before the young designers show, there was a kids costume contest that was very cute and fun to watch.





Later on in the evening there would be an adult costume contest, so the streets were full of interesting characters, it was a great time to be taking pictures on High St.!





Finally the show began. All of the other young designers were REALLY young and they were designing for little kids. So down the runway came lots of little kids, then Beth all 6+ feet of her in her scantily clad dress, then more little kids. It could have been planned a little better. I think 2 shows one for 7-13 and another for 14-18 year olds would be perfect. Really give the high school age designers in the city a place to show off what they’re working on.

But either way Beth still rocked the runway!




Local Fashion Show at Luxboheme

Beth was asked to help out a friend by walking in a local runway show for a little boutique downtown Columbus. We were excited because we didn’t have to drive 1/2 way across the country. Plus  her grandparents and a couple friends got to come watch. The night started out with champagne and hors d’oeuvres on the rooftop terrace.

Here’s my mom and Dan’s mom visiting on the roof:

and Beth, Melissa and Lena. Ha I must have snuck this picture of Melissa in without her noticing, normally she doesn’t let me take her picture.


and this is the champagne that we were very much enjoying!


Ooh a picture of me, I never make it to the blog

Since this is small boutique all of the models were friends of the owners, Beth was youngest, tallest and most modelesque. While Beth stuck to her regular runway walk the other women were having more fun with show and dancing around, spinning, and spending a lot more time out on the floor. I was wishing that someone would tell Beth that she could have more fun with it and not be so serious (she couldn’t see what the other models were doing.) When I mentioned that to her after the show she said her friend Stanley did tell her to slow down and have fun but she thought he was kidding.

After the show we stopped by Knead for some desserts. Here is Rick the chef, owner and Dan’s best friend being amazed at how tall Beth is with her heels on. (He is actually crouching down just a a little bit, but then again so is Beth.)

Videos from STLFW

I am most definitely NOT a videographer! These are pretty crappy videos and I somehow completely missed one of Beth’s walks (possibly the lens cover was closed, who knows)

We LOVED the music for the fashion show. Beth especially loved the song that is playing in this video.

Beth looks so much taller than the other girls in this line up.
Two great songs in this video but I can’t find either of them on iTunes, darn.

St. Louis Fashion Week

Well its not NY but we still had a lot of fun. Beth had a great time doing her show Sat. night. She got to reconnect with some friends from last year and she made some new friends. She was initially nervous about walking but once the shows start she enjoys the adrenaline rush. This years fashion week was a little different than past years instead of having designers from around the world the focus was local boutiques. The culmination of the week was Saturday night’s show Liquid Style taking place in the renovated Old Post Office Plaza Downtown. The shows featured St. Louis boutiques, including Sole and Blues, Rung, Klutch Boutique, The Eye Bar and Boutique 83 (formerly Perchelle Boutique).

She walked twice for Klutch Boutique:(Dan was having a hard time with the dark lighting and the camera, thus the blurry pictures)


Ironically she lost a contact the night before the show, then she ended up wearing fake glasses in the shows. If she had brought her own glasses she could have worn them and been able to see.

Beth was a little nervous about these boots because they were a last minute change and she hadn’t had a chance to practice walking in them before she went on the runway. They ended up being fine.

Next she walked for Rung:
