NYScene: Vogue and BMW Event

Fashion Week kicked off last night with a star-studded Vogue/BMW event and The Fashion Bomb was in the house, of course!I kicked it on the red carpet with loyal readers and Fashion Bombshells Pietrina and Joy, who were sporting some fierce, camera-ready Real Style.We even had us a lil' exercise in workin' the Top Model poses and faces! Inside, the action centered around this ultra-luxe, 7-series Beemer, which Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia's Editor-in-Chief, helped to design. I spotted quite a few celebs working the room, including FB favorites Joy Bryant, Chanel Iman, and Arlenis Sosa.Of course, I had to ask C. Iman about the new "Gossip Girl" scoop reported by our very own Vuitton. She shared that she's always looking to try her hand at new opportunities, and seemed really excited about striking a pose in front of the (TV) camera. You know we'll be tuning in!I also chatted with Chanel's mom, China Robinson(between Chanel and I, above), who often travels with Chanel and is enjoying seeing the world herself. Both mother and daughter were lovely as can be and it's clear where this top model gets her inner and outer glow from. And yes, that's none other than Fashion Bomb friend Ryan Leslie next to Chanel!One of the highlights of the evening was meeting the stunning Arlenis Sosa, one of my favorite models and a fellow Dominicana. We gabbed away in Spanish for quite a while on everything from the fittings she's doing for the shows to the goings-on in our native D.R. As sweet as she is gorgeous, I'm going to love watching her star continue to rise!
It couldn't have been a better kick-off.
Stay focused on The Fashion Bomb for continuing New York Fashion Week coverage this and next week!
