As a mom, I want to be fashionable and sexy and not look and feel like road-kill just because I have a kid, but the line between looking sexy and like you film for TubeV or another adult site can sometimes become blurred. So when I was invited to attend the Strut: the Fashionable Mom Show at Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I felt right at home. Talk show host and mom of one, Wendy Williams hosted this “moms on a mission” runway show and graced the crowd with her “edgy-educated” talk.
Other women in the fashion show included actress Lisa Rinna, What2WearWhere.com editor Karen Klopp, Melanie Fascitelli of luxury closet brands CLOS-ETTE and CLOS-ETTE Too, FinoFile Founder & Editor-in-Chief Filipa Fino, United States Marine and mother of four GySgt Stephanie Borges, and XO Group Inc. Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Carley Roney.
Rent the Runway, the online destination for designer dress and accessory rentals, styled Strut, and many of the show’s looks can be rented on RenttheRunway.com. A percentage of Rent the Runway’s proceeds from the looks will go to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
