FSB On the Scene: Runway Training with Purple Lab NYC

I’ve already told you my love knows no bounds for Huge Lips, Skinny Hips, the lip-plumping-appetite-suppressing-attitude-enhancing lip gloss from innovative cosmetics brand, Purple Lab NYC. Last week, some of us online media mavens put our stilettos where our mouths were at their Runway Training event. Oh yes, you heard right: the media who judges the catwalk stunners received training from legendary runway coach and model industry legend Drew Lineham on how to get a catwalk-worthy strut. Why, you ask? Well, simply put: if you’re going to wear cosmetics that enhance your sex appeal, you should really know what to do with it. I personally like to think of working what you got as handing someone the keys to a really fabulous sports car – of course it’s sexy, but you gotta know how to drive it.

But it was truly fantastic: a bunch of fun ladies giggling with cupcakes, slathering on their Worship Kate lip gloss and discovering their own runway stride. Video and photos from the event are forthcoming but I must report that yours truly was told that she has runway potential (as did Purple Lab’s Creatix Karen Robinovitz, seen in the photo with Drew, our coach)! Evidently, the trick is to pull your spine straight, throw your shoulders back and walk in long, even strides before you strike a pose at the end of the runway. Try this anywhere you like and create your “signature walk.” I personally like to try this at the grocery store: the long aisles give me plenty of room. You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. šŸ™‚
