Kim Depaola held another one of her epic Posche by Kim D fashion shows Tuesday night, and it was a star-studded event. Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline Laurita, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania partied in style with 250 guests at The Brownstone in Paterson for Kim’s annual holiday fashion show. Also making the trek across the Hudson for this fabulous night was former Mob Wives star RaMona Rizzo and The Making of the Mob actor Rich Graff.
While chatting with the prominent relationship expert before the show began, she couldn’t stop gushing about how proud she was of her youngest child. She also revealed that this isn’t Sophie’s first go-around on the runway. “I love the Posche fashion show, but I’m more in love with my daughter Sophie. She’s my angel and I’m obsessed with her because she came out of my cookie,” she tells me as we share a laugh. “She had modeled before. She’s tall, she has the sickest body you will ever see. I am so proud of her.”
Kim tells me this is now her 24th show! She’s been holding three shows a year for the past 8 years. While chatting the long-time “friend” of the RHONJ ladies backstage, she told me she loves going all out for her shows and she treats them just like a wedding, “I love them and I just wanted to change the direction of fashion shows, because sometimes you see them walking down the runway like mannequins. My girls blow kisses, and they’re dancing, They’re a lot more fun. Our show is completely different”
Kim, who opened her iconic store back in 2007 in Wayne, and recently moved to her new Allendale location this past year, tells me she believes fashion should be fun. “I love fashion and I think it should be fun, like I’m a moody dresser. I wake up and change my clothes like five times before I decide. I had 6 dresses on before I decided on this one.”
The resident RHONJ drama stirrer, who was decked out in a gorgeous Herve Leger mini dress and a fab pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes because she say’s “they are unbelievably comfortable,” told me that her shows are always over the top and high-energy. “We love sparkle. You’ll see a lot of lace, a lot of sparkle, because this is the holiday fashion show,” she says. “We did it as over the top as Posche can get.”
