Heatherette by Richie Rich
      FASHION WEEK LOS ANGELES, APRIL 2003
 

As to be expected, the chaotic backstage sideshow was THE show for this wacky event.  An entourage of personality models including Nicky Hilton and a bevy of beefcake poster boys drew ogling cameras like bubblegum to a stiletto while models groomed their psychedelic Mohawks.  After announcements by Kate Roberts and Jack Osbourne, Hello Kittie took her romp down the runway followed by 40 Hollywood icon-inspired ensembles, like
Whiskey-a-go-go tank and  Angelyne corvette leggings.

The finale was pure LaChapelle as Amanda Lepore, wearing nothing but adhesive Nippies and glitter, escorted 2 little cherubs down the catwalk for final bows.  The mood was pure 80's, the color palette poured from a box of Good N Plenty candies and drew directly from Barbie the acid years!  This was the ultimate up-yours feel-good show which stirred the star-studded audience into a flashback frenzy and inspired them all to follow the paparazzi circus up to Hollywood Boulevard for a raucous, campy after party.
