Italian food, an amazing bar, and bikinis, oh boy. That’s what you’ll get at Nicola’s Ristorante on Thursday. (Oh yeah, and a DJ.) We’ll let the models from St. Bernard Sports take the bikinis. Pass the Italian food, please. This “Aperitivo,” or pre-dinner drink-fest, if you will, is basically just a better version of happy hour. Complimentary appetizers will be served, a DJ will spin some beats, and serious drink specials—like $5 Bellinis and Italian margaritas and $4 well drinks—will be offered. “But this is a fashion blog,” you cry! “Why are you telling us about this?!” Well, my friends, because I love you and want you to enjoy a cheap Bellini. But, also, because the swimsuits from St. Bernard Sports will be for sale two doors down. Nothing like seeing a model in a swimsuit before you put it on, right? But maybe the margaritas will blur your vision in the mirror. Either way, we like the swimwear from St. Bernard Sports, and here’s a fun way to view it. Even better? This “Aperitivo” will happen every Thursday, every week from 4 pm to 7 pm. Salute! (I think that’s Italian for “cheers!” but don’t get it tattooed just yet.) Nicola’s, Plano.
Noted modeling agency Wilhelmina Models is looking for you. Well, maybe. If you’re a man or woman 18 and up with a hot bod who lives a “healthy and fit lifestyle,” then they might be looking for you. Wilhelmina will be at the Plano Gold’s Gym on Saturday from 10 am-3 pm as part of its nationwide Hot Body Model Search. It’s an open casting call, so everyone is welcome. Go here for more info on the open call event.
American Apparel is looking for models for print ads, online, photo shoots and artistic projects – which currently appear in 20 countries worldwide. If you have the figure to flaunt the brand’s daring duds and have always dreamed of gracing the pages of glossy magazine’s, now’s your chance. Stop by the open call this Saturday, October 17th from 1pm to 3pm at the Mockingbird Station location. Get more details here.
As always, we never miss an event where there’s fashion and drinking. A chance to walk around, perusing the latest fall trends, with a glass of champagne (or in this case maybe a BachenTini created by Bachendorf’s) in hand? Not for the world. But The Plaza at Preston Center one-ups our fav hobby this year with hors d’oeuvres. For a quick and painless $10–you can’t do much with that these days–you’ll sip, munch, watch a fashion show, listen to beats by a live DJ, bid in a silent auction (optional, obviously), and shop the collections of Carla Martinego Boutique, Marnie Rocks, Calypso St. Barth, and more. The valet parking is complimentary, too. An RSVP is necessary, so send a line to email@example.com or call 469-232-0000. Thursday, Oct. 6:30 pm to 8: 30 pm. See you there, glass of bubbly in hand.
You may know Brynn Isom. The designer and all-around Renaissance woman was once a finalist for our 10 Most Beautiful Women in Dallas. It comes as no surprise to us that she and her sister have launched yet another venture: Get Real Agency. So you’ re not a model or an actor. No problem. Ad agencies and photographers often need everyday people for TV commericals, photo shoots, market research, or print ads. Also, companies sometimes need to fill a room for a big event. So how do you sign up? Easy. Just go to the Get Real Agency web site and upload a current photo. They need people of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities, and gender. What’s the harm? You might earn some extra cash!
