Behind the Scenes at BET’s Rip the Runway 2009 – the usual cast of characters and some eye candy!

Monif - 03.02.09

Hi my lovelies! Sorry for the delay in posting…what can I say, when it rains, it pours! And I mean that in the BEST way…big things happening over here in Monif C land.

While I prepare for tonight’s big airing (don’t know what’s airing yet?), more info coming, I figured I would share some Behind the Scenes shots from our Spring Photoshoot that we just shot.

All the usual suspects where there, and as usual it was alot of fun!

Thanks to everyone that made it happen:

Brandon, Rachel, Mia, Krista, Lars, Ariel, Sasha, Jacque, and Fred!

the usual suspects, Tara Taylor makeup, Mia Amber – model

Don’t look at me like that

Color, color, everywhere!

Oh, and a little trivia for this blog post…so this is a picture of Lars and Krista’s cat Pixel who apparently has aspirations to be America’s Next Top Plus Size Cat Model…We had a big debate at the photoshoot about how much Pixel weighs with many differing opinions (well it was really just Krista insisting that Pixel isn’t THAT big), so I am offering a $50 Monif C Gift Certificate to the person that comes closest to guessing Pixel’s weight Contest ends this Friday the 6th! Email me at info (at) and put in the Subject: Pixel’s weight.

We hope all Monif C. customers will be watching us tonight on BET’s Rip the Runway airing on the BET network at 9pm EST! It’s our fourth year in a row, and we are so happy to be able to continue to showcase beautiful, sophisticated, sexy plus size models and clothing on the runway! Check it out tonight and let us know what you think!

I was going to give you all a sneak preview of some of what you’ll see tonight, but I don’t want to spoil it for you all………………… soooooooooooooooooooo, I decided to treat you to some model eye candy from backstage…

Don’t be jealous….

And I probably shouldn’t put this lovely gentleman on the spot, BUT, EVERY year we do Rip the Runway he gravitates over to our little section…so this year he comes up to me and goes, “i need a thick girl in my life, which one of you is it going to be?”…and I look at him and say, “ummmm, we’re all taken, too late…”, and he says, “damn, why are all the good women taken already?”…a wise man knows a good thing when he sees it
