To culminate October, fashion industry VIPs, media and celebrities came out to Rock Fashion Week Los Angeles – a two-day event joining fashion, art and entertainment at the Peterson Automotive Museum.

Opening night was Gen Art’s 12th annual legendary “Fresh Faces in Fashion” presented by Plastics Make it Possible and hosted by CBS’s Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco. Celebrities sitting front row included: Monet Mazur (Castle), Ashley Palmer (Paranormal Activity), director Rupert Wainwright, Hayley McFarland (Lie to Me), Meagan Martin (10 Things I Hate About You), Kirsten Prout (Kyle XY), Sofia Vassilieva (Medium), Alistair Tober (Universal Recording Artist) and Amanda Lutrell Garrigus (E!).

Plastic exhibits filled one side of the tent and reality shows were filming in every corner. Models pranced throughout. Very LA.

The runway presentation showcased five emerging talents including womenswear designers Leyendecker, Valerj Pobega, Seneca Rising and Rory Beca, as well as menswear designer MG Black.

The following night Rock Fashion Week Los Angeles closed with back-to-back runway shows featuring designers Tristan and Trista, Boy Meets Girl and Biatta Intimates. The Pink Dress Collection benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure, made its final showing after a three-city tour in NYC, Miami, and Los Angeles. The dresses will be auctioned off online to benefit the charity. Carolyn Hennesy (Cougar Town), Megyn Price (Rules of Engagement), Tamala Jones (Castle), and Megan Joy (American Idol) all showed their support walking in the collection. The Hills’ Lo Bosworth hosted the show and joined director Rupert Wainwright, socialite Michael Dean Shelton, Cupid Hayes and Jazmin Whitley in the front row. Rock Fashion Week Los Angeles closed with a rocker-themed show by Biatta Intimates and a closing after party to celebrate the event.
