Fashion is Forward

Tim Gunn. Ph: Betty for MDC.
There’s is nothing we like more than a great cause mixed with beautiful models. Monday night’s Fashion Forward event and fashion show hosted by GMHC (Gay Men’s Health Crisis), Saks Fifth Avenue and Bank of America had it all: fabulous clothes straight from the resort collections at Saks, amazing auction items like a Paris vacation package with 2 tickets to Karl Lagerfeld‘s Fall 2010 show, many of our favorite models and as master of ceremonies, Tim Gunn (our fashion crush) all to benefit the fight against AIDS. (See videos and pictures below).

The darkened backstage doesn’t dampen the compelling message of Mr. Gunn.
