America's Next Top Model
devotees surely remember the beautiful Gabrielle Kniery, a St. Louis native who was part of the fourteenth cycle of Ms. Tyra's model-competition program. Since the show, Kniery has appeared in magazines, music videos, ad campaigns, TV shows and more. Now she tales some time out to give a little love to emerging fashion designers as she hosts the Pins and Needles designer competition
at 7 p.m. tonight at the Boo Cat Club (812 Union Boulevard; www.brainchildevents.com
). Six designers, five of whom are from the Lou, send looks down the runway, competing for your love, and that of the judges, $1,000 and a spot at Saint Louis Fashion Week -- quite a prize! Plus, Pink Elephants Designs, last year's winner, shows new looks as well. Admission is $15 to $40, and a VIP option is available.
