GMA's Robin Roberts Struts Her Stuff for Isaac Mizrahi for NYFW!!

For those who read my other post about Isaac Mizrahi and Mally Roncal, I got the information wrong. The 411 I was given was incorrect — but no big deal, because if you were smart enough to tune in on Thursday AM like I did, I saw Robin Roberts doing the I DARE You Segment of Good Morning America as she become one of the models for Isaac Mizrahi’s New York Fashion Week Fall 2008 collection.

Robin was fitted for an outfit on camera– a black number with great detailing and fabulous neckline– and took lessons from Tyra Banks. She got to do a cover shoot with Nikki Taylor who gave Robin tips on what how to pose and move.
This was all documented before the runway show and it was a stunning thing to watch.


The cool stuff was yet to come. You got to see Mally Roncal LIVE doing her stuff — and her team of makeup artists get all the models ready for their run down the catwalk. Isaac Mizrahi was there too attending to last minute details on every model.

Watch the video because Nina Garcia from Elle Magazine is there in the front row and so are the cameras for Good Morning America to give you a front row seat to this momentous occasion to see a network anchor strut her stuff down the runway. No one on this side of the camera knew what dress Robin was going to wear and they kept her out range as the line of models got closer to the end.

Roberts , the last model– the finale and piece de resistance– came out in this gorgeous red sequin gown- glammed up with makeup, walking with supreme confidence — sans her wig, bald.
Talk about guts, glory and self-confidence! Robin Roberts is one gutsy chick and I applaud her courage and her beauty because what she shows everyone is that cancer can’t and won’t stop her. It doesn’t mean she is any less a person or that she is any less beautiful.
Isaac Mizrahi put on a heck of a show considering all the cameras, Nina Garcia gave her critique and Robin — you were fabulous. Rock on Robin Roberts!!
