Rip the Runway 2012
After the red carpet before the show

This past Wednesday, I was given the opportunity to be apart of something pretty epic. I’m interning in the PR department at BET and I was asked to work the Rip the Runway 2012 event. For those who don’t know, Rip the Runway is an annual fashion/music collaboration. The network asks fashion designers to showcase their work with live musical performances on the stage. Because I work in PR, I was asked to help on the red carpet as an escort, which meant that I guided the talent and celebs down the carpet making sure that all of the photographers and reporters knew who they were. EPIC. I got the opportunity to meet Estelle (so lovely and nice), Robin Thicke (epic) and the creator the thefashionbomb.com Claire Summers (I die :)). I also got a chance to be very close to Pooch Hall, Selita EBanks, Diggy and Angela Simmons, b.o.b, and Wale who all seemed very nice as well. I was literally inches away from Lil’ Kim but of course she had entourage up the ass. (She had a DOPE ass performance though. She did “Crush on You” and “All About the Benjamins”

I was literally right next to her on the carpet
Kim all day everyday:)

Lol of course Robin performed during the thick girls line
Selita’s shoes were everything !!! (Even though apparently I am a drag queen and am obsessed with sparkles)
SASS by Selita (Its swim wear)

I also had the “pleasure” of walking Emily B (from Love and Hip-Hop) down the carpet. Let’s just say she was as basic and unfortunate as her ensemble #shadethrown. It will be quite a pleasure when that pathetic piece of television is canceled so she can stop feeling herself.  (I was told by my bestie that apparently she has a baby daddy who won’t even acknowledge her, Smh I wonder why?….let’s just stop there).


Anywhoo, being around this people was so strange it was like a twilight zone. Nearly everyone had at least a handful of entourage and it was just a very weird thing to see because obviously they’re just human like the rest of us.  All these people were fawning over them telling them how epic they were, obviously this is one of the reasons why fame is very difficult to deal with. Most were cool though so I can’t even complain. After our red carpet duties, the other PR guys and myself were allowed to watch the show. It was all around really fantastic and I enjoyed every minute of chaos.
Rip the Runway will air March 21st at 10PM EST on BET

PS. This was an fantastic humpday, especially because the day before a RAT rolled over my foot as I was walking out of the train. Obviously I burst into tears, screamed and then proceeded to sweat profusely out of horror.
PPS. Excuse the grainy pics, my blackberry is a shit show.
