The show begins TODAY at 8 p.m. and runs all the way through Saturday night (cause it’s 24-hours, duh!). Bill and Giuliana Rancic will be hosting the second annual shindig with the likes of Louise Roe, Michael Yo, Scott Evans and Nikki Novak. Actress Camilla Bell and fashion designer Lauren Conrad will also be making a special appearance.

Round-the-clock special DJ’s like DJ Irie, Jessica Who?, CC Sheffield, Aulden Brown, Ross One and DJ Cassidy will be providing the beats for the bevies of models that will be struttin’ their stuff down the catwalk.

Ocean Drive will be the place to be between 8th & 9th Street to catch the one-of-a-kind fashion event that will reveal 1,440 different looks ranging from nighttime chic to daytime glamour. That’s one look per minute people!

Trends That Should End In 2012.

I don’t consider myself to be an expert of fashion, but I am a lover of fashion. I’m also not a huge believer in this ridiculous theory (no offense to any Mayan’s out there) that the world is going to end this year, but I do however have very strong feelings towards certain fashion trends that should.

First up, ‘crackel nail polish’. Unless you are Ke$ha, or live in a trash can there is no reason why your nails should look like this. The fact that someone even invented this boggles my mind. When your nails are chipped, it’s time to paint them again. You shouldn’t want to paint them to look chipped on purpose! This doesn’t make you look cool, it makes you look dirty.

The second trend actually just really freaks me out. Apparently, someone thought it would look cool to dye their hair gray and now everyone is doing it. I mean isn’t that what hair dye is for in the first place? To hide your grays?! If this was some sort of scheme to make aging cool it’s just dumb. Everyone knows getting old sucks, wrinkles suck, gray hairs suck. There is no amount of brainwashing you can do to make me think any different. And to prove my point..who looks hotter? Sharon Osbourne or her daughter with freakishly strange gray hair? Exactly.

But the top worst trend of 2011 had to be the nerd glasses. Why oh why must we be tortured with this horrific accessory?! Ladies & gents, I’m not saying glasses can’t be sexy, but there is a fine line between sexy & just fucking stupid. The absolute worst ones are the glasses WITHOUT a lens. What is the point of this?! If you ever wear these glasses you deserve to get poked in the eyeballs –hard. Like I previously mentioned, nerd glasses can be hot, mostly if you look like anything like this guy..in which case, you should probably wear nothing but nerd glasses at all times. Yum.

However, nerd glasses aren’t always your friend. They can & will make you look like a fucking idiot…
