“Vocal notes, Maintenance mag, Bottega Veneta Detroit. Dara, xoxo. It all started at Maintenance VMA after party at 1OAK. I met Daniel Lee there with Mel. A few weeks later I had a casting for Bottega, and before I knew it we were in Detroit! On the day of, they put us in these orange FAB dresses, all matching. The uniformity is truly glamorous. Then came the time of hairdressing and makeup. It all looked like a car wash – I’ve never been so peeled and pulled in my whole life. The Bottega nail team took away my French advice because of fashion. The hair slicked back me with black gel so my back didn’t look scaly. This high pony look stayed with me for FOUR days, honey. I found out I was closing right before the show started, and I was in SHOCK. I hit the trail stomping and just passed out. After the final walk, I immediately started to cry and put my lipstick on my chin. I missed the party upstairs because I was waiting to photograph the lookbook, so I put on my earrings and pumped up to the after-party – in an all-out bowling alley. places ! When I went to kiss Mel, I accidentally stabbed him in the eye with my new Bottega Veneta earring! He was doing fine. After that I played heels at 3 a.m. Fabulous !”
