October 7, 2009


Music and fashion go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly, which is why I’m excited to hear about DC50’s Fashion & Lifestyle Expo this weekend with a fashion show and concert. On Saturday, October 10 multi Grammy award winning artist Brian McKnight performs at WDCW-TV’s 2009 Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle Expo at the Grand Hyatt Washington Hotel with guests models Saleisha Stowers, Sandra Nyanchoka & Isis King rocking the catwalk in fabulous fall trends.

Featured attractions include hourly runway fashion shows – produced by DC50’s industry partner the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce – including national fashion brands Betsey Johnson and Ed Hardy! Among the beautiful women walking the runway will be America’s Next Top Model stars Saleisha Stowers, Sandra Nyanchoka & Isis King. A full list of participating designers and schedule of events can be found at

DC50 will also have a lavish beauty suite on location providing complimentary make-up, mini-manicures and more to the first 500 women to walk through its doors. The 500 women will also receive a complimentary swag bag filled with a $50 value of the latest must haves. FBL is not just a day filled with fabulous fashion finds, cool freebies and trendy make-overs. There are also power-packed seminars for the modern day fashionista.

In honor of domestic violence month Becky Lee from the hit show “Survivor” and founder of Becky’s Fund will host a self-defense seminar giving young women helpful tips on how to protect themselves. Celebrity Apprentice’s Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth will also be on hand to give women her “in your face” advice on how to advance your career and your paycheck! Model coach Paul Wharton will host an instructional seminar for young women hoping to break into the modeling industry. Celebrity photographer Tony Powell will help women boost their portfolio. Mark Jenkins, the celebrity trainer to stars such as P Diddy, Beyonce, Mary J Blige & LL Cool J, will bring his popular work-out class “The Jump Off” to anyone brave enough to attend. And WKYS radio personality Jeannie Jones will broadcast live from the event.

So get ready to enjoy a day jam-packed with celebrity appearances, fashion shows, seminars, makeovers, free samples and shopping for the most up-to-date clothing, accessories, cosmetics, and much more.
