Last week I was invited to attend the True Blood Season Five Premiere and Party.
Before I started modeling full time, I worked as a production assistant on True Blood during seasons three and four and absolutely loved it. Even though I spent 80 hours a week making coffees, telling grown men to lower their voices, and counting how many ice cubes I put in a Pellegrino, I utterly enjoyed every minute of it and my coworkers became my family. When my old boss asked if I'd be her date to the event I was so excited!
The night started at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood where we saw the first episode of Season Five. I can't say much but I will tell you that it was awesome and naked... as usual. After the screening we all walked next door to a new club called Lure. There were dancers, trays of drinks and food, and loads of sexy people everywhere. I rarely get to go to these kinds of events so I needed to look H-O-T.
I ordered this dress from Rent the Runway, even though the earliest it could arrive was the day of the event. I wear a size 12/14 and the largest they had was a 12 (not a fan of this) so I ordered it anyways. It was a tad too tight, a bit short, and the open sleeve style accentuated my ravishing armpits. I've always had a great experience with Rent the Runway though and I sent it back for a full refund which they happily awarded me. I had bought a few backups at Loehmann's though and ended up wearing a long-sleeve, curve hugging, red dress by A.B.S. I ended up happy, confident, and comfortable all night. Alexander Skaarsgard was all over me. He can be so suffocating at times. Ok that didn't happen.
