Thursday was quite a day for little Allison Kate! She had to opportunity to be in a back-to-school fashion show on Fox channel 5, here in San Diego. We had to arrive early—well, 7:30—which is extremely early since we have been on summer break! The back-to-school fashion show segment did not air until 8:30. I had no trouble getting my little fashionista up bright and early. She was so excited!
When we arrived, we were lead back to the green room, which was something of organized chaos. There was hair, make-up, and outfit coordination going on everywhere. It seemed like there were so many kids, but I think there were only 15-20. Allison was given these cute gold skinny jeans and she was absolutely in love with them. Can you see it in the look in her face? LOVE!
She felt so good about herself! Here she is striking a pose:
After her outfit was carefully coordinated, they sent us out to the lobby to wait for the hair and make-up. While we were waiting, Congressman Brian Billbray came through the lobby and said hello to all of us waiting. I thought it was pretty cool, because it is not everyday you get to be on television the same day as your congressman!
It was not long before they came out to get us. Allie hopped up in the chair, sat much more still than she does when I do her hair, then was primped and fussed over.
There were lots of smiles
…and lots of contemplation
After hair, make-up, and wardrobe, we were sent outside to prepare for the filming. There were so many pieces that had to be in place. There were so many people running around. It seemed like they would never pull off the show. Evidently, it was just another day on the set and everything came together!
The back lot is not as glamorous as I thought it would be, but somehow they were able to make it look good.
Here are the news anchors and the fashion designer getting ready for the segment.
The cameras were everywhere!
Allie was carefully listening to direction and waited patiently until it was her turn.
Here she is strutting her stuff:
She really was a natural! This was a chance of a lifetime for Allison. She had such a blast!
Here is part one of the segment. Allison comes in about 5 minutes, 30 seconds or about 1 minute, 15 seconds before the end:
There is not much on part two, but here is that segment:
