Giada De Laurentiis Walked Runway for NYFW

By: Alexandria Sardam - February 7, 2014

It seems celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis has a newfound respect for models.

That’s right, the smiley chef made her debut last night modeling at the Heart Truth Dress Collection show for New York Fashion Week.

“I’m super excited; I’ve never done this before. I used to think being a model and walking the runway was an easy job, but I have changed my mind. I have so much respect for those women because it’s a tough job,” she said.

According to the lovely chef, she mastered her very own walk for the runway.

“I’ve sort of not asked anybody. I kind want it to be my own experience,” she exclaimed.

The 43-year-old rocked the stage and her fiery red dress. You go, Giada!

Brand creative director, Lubov Azria said, “We’re really focusing on our 25-year anniversary, and celebrating the brand’s timeless elegance and affordable luxury,” she shared. “I still have the same designer that did the first show. It brings back memories!”

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with designs from Nicholas K. The show will go until next Thursday evening.
