    My NY Fashion Week Experience With Bertolli And Zac Posen

    Last night I was invited to attend the Zac Posen show during NY Fashion Week and be Bertolli’s Facebook correspondent. It was my first time at Lincoln Center and the energy and the buzz is JUST THE SAME as it was at Bryant Park. I was very nervous about that – but it was equally fabulous.

    Before the party I was able to watch the Z Spoke show and it was divine! There were a TON of celebs in the front row. I took a quick video so you can check it out. Jaime King, Devon Aoki, Claire Danes, Shenae Grimes, Carmen Electra, Kimora Lee Simons, Kristin Cavallari, Estelle and MORE. Those were the people I saw on the opposite site. I am SURE I missed a few.

    Here’s the intro – it wasn’t the best camera footage so I didn’t shoot for too long. The show starts at 45 seconds or so – fast forward ahead.

    Then the party began and I had to interview a few people including Rocco DiSpirito. Bertolli is sending me the video – so I will post it as soon as I get it.

    If you “like” Bertolli on Facebook you can see some of the videos I did with the winners of a recipe contest. Their recipes are all online should you want to get a little creative in the kitchen this weekend.

    When we were leaving Bill became a little photographer and took a few photos of me in the main lobby. He kept telling me how proud he was of me which was really nice to hear.

    I won’t bore you with all the shots but he was like – GO BY THAT SIGN. Now MOVE OVER THERE. LOL! It was hilarious.

    The one downfall of the evening. Killer heels. I couldn’t walk back to the car. I mean it. Unfortunately this will be the last time I wear these puppies. They are officially retired (and going to my 16 year old cousin).

    We ended up hitting the road after 930. I was invited to the Charlotte Ronson show and after party but decided to skip it. I didn’t want to have to limp around the room!

    We stopped for some french food and each ordered a quick appetizer. Then we headed home and passed out. I was POOPED. Had a great time and want to thank Bertolli for inviting me along fo the ride. They are such a GREAT group of people.
