Fran Drescher at MODUS Union 2011

DC Housewives’ Mary Amons and her charity Labels of Love pulled off a spectacular show at MODUS Union 2011 benefiting Cancer Schmancer.

Fran Drescher was pink hot and front row to enjoy the Mark Bouwer show that supported the actress’ cause.

Drescher battled uterine cancer and has since then used her star power to promote awareness and raise money for research.

WHCD Weekend: Rented the dresses and all!

Michelle Obama donned a long Halston dress at the White House Correspondents Dinner the same designer I chose to wear too! Hers was probably a gazillion dollars where mine cost only$75bucks. HOW you ask? I RENTED it.

Yep-   It’s my new favorite thing. Renting dresses and jewelry from Rent-the-Runway.com. There’s designers fit for the First Lady you can rent for a fraction of the cost. I mean- some are only $25!  Not only did I rent the Jet Black Halston for the party night.. I got a Lela Rose dress for brunch the next day.

This is how it works. You choose the 4 day span to rent your dress for time to get it, wear it and mail it back. They give you all you need. Oh and here’s a perk- you can choose a second size for free! The Halston halter was $455 but I rented it for $75. I also rented the this $545 Dannijo cuff.. for $45.

Hats off to Pink Jams’ Christa Floresca and Shoot for Change’s Walter Grio. The dynamic duo proved we can all think pink through the power of black and white.
