Rip the Runway hosts Mehcad Brooks and Selita Ebanks
Last night I attended a viewing party for BET's Rip the Runway at Katra Lounge.  The annual runway show combines the latest in fashion with some of the hottest musical talent.  This year designs by Rachel Roy, WISB, Tennille White, Man vs. Machine, LaQuan Smith, and Lila Nikole graced the stage with performances by Keri Hilson, Lloyd, Melanie Fiona and more.

But back to the party.  Surrounded by models from the show, I was able to watch it all unfold on the big screen while sipping on cocktails from Fragoli and nibbling mini cupcakes from Tonnie's in Harlem.  Even though the crowd was a bit noisy, everyone was enthusiastic to watch the show at times cheering like it was a football game.  Overall it was a good way to end an otherwise dreary Monday night.
