Life Unexpected actress Shiri Appleby lends her support to designer Monique Lhuillier backstage at her Fall 2010 Fashion Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the Promenade at Bryant Park on Monday (February 15) in New York City.
Here’s what the 31-year-old star shared:
JJ: What do you love about Monique?
SA: She’s just so feminine and she has an edge to her – later on in the season [on Life Unexpected], I get into a wedding dress and I was just very adamant that I wanted to be wearing Monique Lhuillier. This is my first show, so it’s nice to be at her show for the first time!
JJ: Did you shoot that scene already? How was it?
SA: We shot it! Amazing, the whole show. We finished shooting on Wednesday. I love the glamour of her dress – you walk out and it’s strapless and I had one of those long veils – it was very Princess Diana! I just feel really happy that people are watching it and paying attention to things!
JJ: What’s your favorite prop from the show?
SA: I think probably the radio mics we use in the radio station – I just love any of those scenes so it makes me feel like a real radio DJ.
JJ: Are you obsessed with reality TV at all?
SA: No – unfortunately, I work so much I don’t watch too much TV! I’ve been watching [the 80's show] Thirtysomething on DVD – I don’t think that counts!
By the grace of the fashion gods out there, I was able to sit next to Shiri during the show. “Loved popping my fashion show cherry with you!” she laughed.
A new episode of Life Unexpected airs TONIGHT (February 15) @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW. Tune in!!!
