Bryanboy’s "A-HA" Moment #16,309: Alex Perry

About an hour before the Alex Perry show started, one of the super nice PR ladies asked me if I want red carpet access to take photos and get quotes from celebrities. In case you don’t know, Alex Perry’s show is the ultimate celebrity magnet during Australian Fashion Week.

I politely said no because I honestly have NO idea who Australian celebrities are other than the usual Hollywood suspects Nicole, Cate, Gemma, etc. From what I felt outside the tents, it seems to me that a lot of "presenters" are celebs in Australia — children’s show presenters, tv presenters, radio presenters, blah blah blah so on and so forth. There I was wondering if there are any, you know, local heartthrobs or whether or not there’s an Aussie version of The Hills, Gossip Girl or what have you.

I thought I’d smoke a few cigarettes outside instead of waiting in the front row for the show the start. By the time I finished my cigarettes, the red carpet bonanza is still going strong. I don’t want to be a nuisance to celebs getting their photos taken so I stood on the side. My friend Bex pointed out some Australian "celebrity" I’ve never seen/heard of and I was like… wow. It went on like that for a few minutes… one big, bountiful, blond bombshell after another. And then for some reason I blurted…

Me: "OH MY GOD AUSTRALIAN CELEBS LOOK LIKE PORN STARS!"

outta nowhere. One of the security guys, a PR lady, a few photographers and several people on the queue gave me THAT funky look so I said…

Me:
"OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE I SAID THAT!"

as a cheap attempt to rescue me from my little booboo.

Australia’s Next Top Model host Jodhi Meares who I **LOVE** (pictured above) then popped by so I went straight up to her. We chatted very briefly (something about my Chanel bag) and then I asked her for a photo. Jodhi saves the day!
