Jessica Simpson Swim Fashion Show

A thin layer of what appeared to be industrial-size Saran-Wrap covered the runway, but it surely wasn't the only plastic present at the debut of Jessica Simpson’s new bathing suit line at the Raleigh Hotel Saturday, July 14. Before the show started surgically-enhanced, wanna-be models strutted up and down the white catwalk, skillfully gliding through the preparatory chaos of silver (or sailor, depending on your perspective) tongued photogs and head-set clad PR girls on the verge of Red Bull induced melt-downs. Perhaps it was the backlash of the previous night’s stigma (Friday the 13th), but extremely odd music played as the masses slowly squeezed inside the narrow, white room showered in femme sky-blue and hot pink lights.
