Nothing is guaranteed even 15 minutes of play; as the incomparable Heidi Klum says on Project Runway: Youre either in, or youre out.

So tonight at 8 at the BankUnited Center, youll not only see whats hot, but also learn how to revamp your style without throwing away all of those shoulder-padded blazers.
