Singers Mary J. Blige, Christina Milian and Tyrese were among the featured celebrity models who walked the runway at Los Angeles’ Paramount Studios lot for GM’s 6th Annual Ten celebrity fashion show on Tuesday night (February 20), which also showcased their newest vehicles.
Tyrese walked the runway — in front of celebs such as Bruce Willis, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Lil Jon — dressed in an all-black suit with white tie and handkerchief alongside Saturn’s Sky RedLine convertible; Mary J. Blige strutted her stuff in a long silvery dress with a 2009 Camaro Convertible; and Christina Milian, dressed in a red Monique Lhuillier dress, walked the runway with a 1952 Buick Riviera.
Other celebrity models included Jennifer Hudson, Mario Lopez, Donald Faison, Mekhi Phifer, Roselyn Sanchez and comedian Chris Kattan, among others.
GM’s pre-Academy Awards Ten event was styled by Rachel Zoe, featured hair by Brant Mayfield of the Chris McMillan Salon, and makeup by Rachel Goodwin. Following the fashion show, Ghostland Observatory opened for Grammy-winning artist Beck.
“The TEN event is like none other,” said Susan Docherty, general manager of GM’s Western Region. “This is our annual event that mixes GM’s hot products with top designer fashions and Hollywood’s coolest celebrities. Not to be eclipsed by the star power in the room, TEN’s pristine fleet of GM vehicles this year included many of our advanced technologies including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and hybrids. We’ve got the perfect combination under one roof making this one of LA’s must-attend events of the year, which is something we are really proud of.”
