My first catwalk experience!
I love new experiences and crazy stories. The Aveda fashion show was both.
A whole stylist team (including an Armenian hairdresser! Represent!) gave me an afro. A bonafide afro. It took about 6 hours, and 3 tons of product. My ball gown was massive and constructed entirely of reclaimed materials.
A flamboyant announcer praised the dress and the fact that I could walk in it, while I, duh, concentrated on not falling down.
I got to live a day and night in the life of a runway model, and it was pretty cool.
