Tele Mondo

I stopped over at Beauty Bar Denver tonight after work for the season 8 premiere of Project Runway. Tran Willis of The Fabric Lab hosted a lovely party for the homegrown designer, Mondo Guerra, who was present, and also a season 8 contestant- local celebrity action!!! It was so much fun! Tran had a cute little station equipped with a button-making machine to make our own “Team Mondo” pins. Tiny cupcakes and pink icing cookies sat nearby. For $10 you could get a martini and mani, I passed due to the two hour wait, and the fact that I can’t keep a martini in its glass for the life of me, and went for my usual mandarin-tonic for $4- steal! Once nestled into an old restaurant booth upholstered in metallic gunmetal grey, I watched the season premiere of Project Runway’s Season 8. It was great to see Mondo in person and chat with him on commercial breaks. All of his family and friends came out to support. I asked Mondo what it was like to meet Heidi Klum, my burning question, and he gave me the perfect PC response of, “She has a lot of personalities. She’s nice.” There was also a mini trunk show during a commercial break with local designer James Silvrants of James Etc. Also working the room I found Broox Pulford, who designed my blog banner and business cards,and his adorable girlfriend Samantha, artist Allie Pohl who’s currently prepping for a September show in San Francisco, and fashion designer Jose Duran who was taking video footage of the event for 303 magazine. Mondo passed the first cut, with a lime green, form fitting mini, with Missoni-like fabric sewn into the back and sides, which Tim Gunn initially called matronly because of its cap sleeves, but in it’s final walk down the runway, Mondo turned out a flawless look. My favorite line of the evening came from Michael Kors about contestant Casanova’s dress, “It’s like a pole dancer in Dubai!” Mondo Guerra is a character, an individual, and I’m positive, will make for great t.v.- the producers were so lucky to get such a talented and intriguing personality in one young man as they had cast with Mondo. If you missed out on the fun this week, you can catch the show every Thursday at Beauty bar Denver on 13th & Pearl. Go Team Mondo!!!!
