When I attended the Red Carpet Arrival Event, “Hollywood Gets Munk’d” at the El Rey Theatre, it was a pleasure for me to interview a number of actors within Hollywood’s entertainment industry. Some of the responses to my fashion related question, “who are you wearing” were as follows:

Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee): “Porridge, is the designer to my gray dress”.

Becky and Milly Rosso (Legally Blondes): “Our dresses are from Limited Two”.

Christina Perez (Christina’s Court): “I’m wearing a good pair of jeans with black top”.

Cameron Richardson (“Claire”): “I went to the home of an LA stylist and selected this green dress from her selection”.

Matthew Gray Gubler (voice of “Simon”): “I am wearing a Bill Cosby inspired t-shirt that I designed about a year ago”.

The assignment was a fun, informative gig. I left with more knowledge about the endeavors of the furry trio. Alvin, Simon and Theodore (Alvin and the Chipmunks) which was started by it’s creator, Ross Bagdasarian, Sr in 1958. It’s a wrap, V.
