Combine hot outfits, celebrity guests, break-dancing models and a beach-front venue, and you have the scene at Ooh la la Boutiques' Glitz Glamour Groove Give fashion show to benefit nonprofit group Boarding for Breast Cancer on Saturday night.
"I'm a Long Island girl," proud host Jill Zarin, known for her fashion line Skweez Couture and former role on Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York City," announced from the poolside runway on the Allegria Hotel's rooftop in Long Beach.
Other reality stars in attendance were "Mob Wives" Ramona Rizzo and Karen Gravano. Rizzo modeled a body-hugging black dress with cut-out shoulders and carried a gold toy gun as Gravano cheered her on.
Dr. Patrick McManus of Beach Babies and Broward Limousine were among the sponsors. Looks are on sale at Ooh la la Boutiques in Long Beach, Huntington, Fire Island and Babylon.
