America's Next Top Model

Proud mama moment about to launch.

My daughter was recently invited to be in a fashion show. She did not want to do it. AT ALL. Good mom that I am, I told her to shrug off her nervousness and told her it would be rude to decline. (Actually, the words "Suck it up" might just have come out of my mouth.) Dontcha just love me!

The rehearsal was Tuesday night during which I received quite a few texts from my daughter with the theme, "I can't believe you made me do this." Turns out, the models don't just strut down the runway in a cute outfit. No..... You are actually assigned a theme - the outfit is just one aspect of the theme but you also must dance a routine to the song that has been choreographed by the organizers. my daughter was assigned Clumsy by Fergie and was expected to trip deliberately as part of the routine.

She was fantastic and when she hit the runway, all signs of nervousness disappeared and she looked like a beautiful, confident young lady. I am so proud. BTW, the outfit was quite cute. Top and skirt are both from BCBG and found at Macy's.

Here she is awaiting her turn and wishing she was anywhere but there:


And this is her on the runway looking FIERCE!

Fantastic! I would have said the same thing to my own DD. I'll have to show my DD this skirt your DD has on, because she wants one very similar to it. Your DD looks gorgeous!

Your daughter is beautiful and looks like a confident young woman. Congratulations on a job well done!

BTW how do you keep your Shelfari link updated? Mine doesn't ever change no matter how I update it on the Shelfari site.

Good call, mom. All too often kids don't really know what they want!

Oh wow - she looks gorgeous! Did she ultimately thank you for making her do it?
