Tommy's Paints the Town- Orange

Tommy Hilfiger was in town to host Fashion’s Fight Against MS– an ORANGE Event. Held at the beautiful Washington Club in Dupont, the runway show included local models and DC Housewives’ Michaele Salahi, who recently announced she has MS. Hilfiger has a close tie to the cause too.. his sister battles the disease. On DC fashion, Hilfiger said Obama is one of the best dressed politicians but Michelle ‘takes the cake.’ He added the key to being fashionable is keeping it classic– when you try to hard you end up looking ridiculous, he said. More of my interview with the American designer will air Friday during the WUSA Morning Show.
