Tommy Hilfiger, Michaele Salahi and Fashion Fight MS

The glitterati and paparazzi were out in force at The Washington Club Tuesday evening for Fashion Fight MS—raising funds for the National MS Society. The event's honorary co-chairs were Tommy Hilfiger and NYC runway model Shannon Rusbuldt (one of Hilfiger's top models) were on hand to greet guests and introduce the evening’s runway parade of designs by Hilfiger, and the top Fall collections of other designers such as Hilton Hollis, Nary Manivong and Sir by Joanna Baum with jewelry by Lisa Nik. Models walked to the music of renowned runway musician Henri Scars Struck who included everything from Edith Piaf to Led Zeppelin. Hilfiger opened the show remarking that his sister, who suffers from MS, inspired him to help raise much needed funds to battle this disease stating that this is a “real fashion show for a real great reason.” Guests included Hilfiger, Tareq and Michaele Salahi (who had a little problem balancing on her shoes on the runway but did, in all fairness, look resplendent in the red dress she modeled), Chris Broullier, the National Capitol Chapter President of the MS Society and Sophie Pyle and Katherine Kennedy of the Blonde Charity Mafia.
