The shows benefits go to The Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to raise awareness of the prevalence of breast cancer among our youth today.
Charlie Altuna and Jany Stanley productions, celebrity stylists and character of VH1’s “ The Cho Show”, will be producing and styling the 1970’s concert themed runway show “ Foxy Lady” featuring looks from YMI Jeans Spring’09 collection.
On the red carpet, the celebrities wouldn’t stop talking about jeans, jeans, and jeans! Kay Panabarker ( Summerland) exclaimed, “I love jeans! They are my favorite! I have tons, and tons of different pairs in my closet.”
Asking Aimee Teegarden why she loved YMI Jeans so much, she answered, “They are so comfortable and form fitting. YMI has such unique styles and they are so hip and trendy.” Aimee happened to be wearing a YMI black denim jean skirt that fit her comfortably and made her figure look amazing.
Ashley Michele Green from the upcoming film " Twilight," was practically screaming for more YMI Jeans. “I only have one pair and I need more! YMI needs to style me a.s.a.p.”
Miss USA Crystle Stewart and Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza matched with hot pink YMI mini skirts. Both girls looked like Barbie in the skirts—I wanted to look just like them!
Curious about the girls matching minis, I wanted to know more about their plans coming to the fashion show in them.
Miss USA, Crystle Stewart, explained, “We both loved the skirt! I wanted to wear it she wanted to wear it, so we both decided to wear it. The skirt is just so cute!” The girls looked fabulous in the minis and couldn’t wait for the show to begin to show why every girl should love YMI as well.
Inside, Kimberly Caldwell opened YMI’s Spring ’09 show followed by a collection of models in colorful spring Looks. The girls looked amazing in the YMI Jeans. The new trend was the color jeans that popped yellow, pink, blue, and purple. I am definitely getting my hands on a pair of those colored YMI Jeans.
At the end of the show, the current face of YMI, Aimee Teegarden did a tribute to Susan G. Komen. She wore a blue denim YMI dress and sparkled on the runway.
YMI made a donation to S.G.K. in the name of every celebrity and performer in attendance to support the cause. YMI has also brought together the following for the show; runway hair care products by partner sponsor, Ookisa, Hair Thickening System, (an avid supporter of Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate); lead make-up artist and co-star of the VH1 The Cho Show John Stapleton of MAC Cosmetics; who all teamed-up for the YMI runway production.
VH1 was on site to capture behind the scenes for the second season of " The Cho" Show. DIRECTV and The 101 Network will join to celebrate the season premiere of " Friday Night Lights" Wednesday nights 9 PM ET/PT.
Overall the night was a success for the cause, for YMI’s new Spring '09 line, and for every one in attendance who was showered by hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and a great time! You could feel the energy in the air of the excitement of fashion and the new styles every girl is waiting to grab. I can’t wait to a get my hands on a pair or maybe even pairs of new YMI Jeans!
