Hangin' with Jay Manuel for Free Ninety Nine!

Ali, Jay Manuel and Julie.. just a few bitches hanging out (minus Tyra ofcourse)

Isn't it always the most spontaneous nights are the funnest? Alright, let's Quentin Tarentino this post back to the beginning.

Ali emails me this morning saying Jay is going to be at the Prudential Center talking about makeup! Alright, so makeup ended up being "Calvin Klein Bras" which made for an even more fabulous fashion show. 5pm, I hopped on the T over to Copley after work and met up with Ali. First i dragged her to Sephora because I had to collect my Bday Gift for being in the Insider Club. It was some Vanilla Bubble Bath, score! Anyhoo, we head over to Lord & Taylor, and schmooze our way to grab front row seats at the fashion show. On the way there we see Jay walking down the aisle.. us being the total dorks are we are immediately shriek (in a very quiet tone) while pointing to him telling him "You're Jay!". Can I tell you, he is so gorgeous in person. Very Skinny & Tall too. Plus he was wearing cowboy boots that had some questionable big heals. And his voice and demeanor? Awesome and EXACTLY how he is like on ANTM and E! Red Carpet Specials. OMG he's like my dream gay best friend.

Basically he talked about Calvin Klein Bras (which were actually very awesome and I'd totally buy some if I wasn't closing on a house in two weeks) and some models walked around and pretended like they were trying out for ANTM (they were so not up to par). There were a bunch of Calvin Klein reps ready to measure your bra size, which is why he kept saying "Go talk to the ladies and get fitted, its FREE Ninety Nine! (aka fashion talk for Free- i thought that was really called a five finger discount- but this sounds much classier!)

THEN came the question and answer part. I thought it was going to be ridiculous.. finally we'd hear some batshit crazy stories about Tyra and Miss J Alexander. But NO. All these dumb bitches in the crowd started asking about bras. "Blah blah blah how do i get a full bust? blah blah blah" Gosh- two more glasses of Complimentary Champange and I would've asked for him to judge my model walk while singing "Na na na na na na NA NA NA NA NA NA" at the top of my lungs.

Finally came the photo opportunity. Thank God Ali's camera stayed alive until the pic of us was taken. While we were waiting, the girl's camera in front of us was acting all weird, so there was an awkward pause. Jay then has a second to check out Ali's outfit, point to her and say "Now THIS girl can put an outfit together. Fierce, Girl!" Um.. I'm pretty sure that's the coolest compliment one can get.. ever.We then get our picture together and completely act like giddy school girls walking outside on the streets of Boston. There might have been a point in the night where he asked for our info to get on the next season on ANTM, but it was so crowded, it just passed us by. Yeah.

Did I say he was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen?

na na na na na na NA NA NA NA NA NA..

I'm surprised that he's tall - he seems short on tv

I love Jay. I hate you.

JK

I am simultaneously screamingly jealous and happy that you got to see him in person and take a picture with him. AND the comment on her outfit...to die for.

Nanette said...

GASP! That's AWESOME! (Although was the amount of make-up he had on off-putting at all? Looks like it was a TON.)

Katelin said...
