LA Style - March 2008

By Veronica Viljoen

In Los Angeles, March 2008 was fashion delight. New lines to view; buyers and editorial decisions on overload; the Fall 2008 Collections finally came to LA and then Socialite, Paris Hilton, (L) suprised us all by attending the runway show of her sister, Nicky Hilton, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios, Tuesday, March 11 at 8:00pm.

Unfortunately, for some of us, Paris Hilton did not stop on the "arrival area" at the event, nor did she stop for any photographers in The Lounge inside The Tent. Surrounded by about 7 people in her entourage, Hilton was whisked right thru to her final destination, backstage to Nicholai. I was one of those photographers that only got a few images of her in passing. However, LA Photographer, Glenn Francis, Pacific Pro Digital, made good on been at the right place in the right time. Francis landed numerous images of this timely event as Paris Hilton came out in support of her sister. Also, at the collection were the parents to the Hilton sisters, Kathy and Rick Hilton.
