All that glitters... is gold at Denise Hajjar's fashion show to benefit Dress for Success at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. It's easy to understand the glamour coming down the runway when you see the magic being created in a back stage dressing area fit for a queen!

Meet Bethany Van Delft. Bethany has graced many of Boston's fashion runways as a model extraordinaire over the years. Everyone knows she's funny, but what some who know her through the fashion industry might not know is that she is a comedienne on the verge of greatness, or at least a sitcom deal. She'll be sharing her model musings all through Boston Fashion Week.

 

 

Waiting For Tina – Part I

 

One time my husband and I met my booker for drinks. We had ordered cocktails and were deep into dish when we were joined by M, a very sweet model with whom I had worked a few times. My booker and I scampered out for a cigarette, leaving my husband and M alone. Post-smoke my booker went to the powder room, while I returned to the bar to find them sitting in menacing silence, looking like someone had put earwax in their drinks. "Um, so," I said hoping to out-awkward the current vibe, "How's that iPhone?" The iPhone had just come out, like 10 minutes earlier, and as every cool model did, M already had one. "It's fine, and you can tell this jerk I'm not stupid!" this jerk being my husband. Whahahappen while I was away was this: my tech geek husband, having read every word written about the iPhone in the last year, bombarded M with questions such as, "Are you having trouble with calls? Is it hard to text on? Is the touch screen difficult to use?" and so on in rapid fire. To M, it sounded like some douchebag curious as to how a dumb model was finding such a complicated piece of technology. She first gave him one word answers, then for a while just ignored him and texted (just fine, she assured me later), until fed up she yelled, "I know what you think! I am not stupid!" seconds before I walked back in. "I don’t think you are stupid," hubby said to M, "Rude and crazy, but not stupid."
