We have TWO Fashion's Night Out events: Carol Alt at J&R Music World, downtown AND Mandi Norwood at Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue store in NYC.

At 7:30 pm in J&R Music World, 25 Park Row, Manhattan, Carol Alt will be signing "Model, Incorporated", the much-anticipated sequel to Carol Alt's first work of fiction, "This Year's Model".

"The cover, of course, features the young model who won the contest we ran last year and she's just adorable! Rianna (Hardesty) couldn't have been a better pick for my book and I'm really thrilled for her!", Carol says. When Carol teased Rianna recently about being "so old" (at 21!), Rianna said, "But...but...I'm not so old!" Carol, of course, was kidding her, but she found it rather charming that even at the tender age of 21, someone can still be a bit sensitive about age.

MODEL, INCORPORATED follows the further adventures--both personal and career-wise--of MAC, the heroine of the first novel. "It's not just difficult to get to the top", Carol tells us, "it's difficult to stay on the top, as Mac (formerly Melody Ann Croft) learns. Models have a lot of choices and decisions to make throughout their careers, often on a daily basis. When you make those choices based on what your heart tells you, things tend to work out well. Choices based upon finance or ego, or that come from simple greed, generally do not turn out as well.

Called "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World" by Playboy Magazine and "The Next Million Dollar Face" by Life Magazine, Carol Alt has not disappointed. Gracing the covers of over 700 magazines, several posters, two workout videos, and numerous calendars, she is a one-woman conglomerate! She has lost track of the number of advertising campaigns, commercials, interviews, hosting jobs, and endorsement contracts that have created this enormously successful and lasting career.

Also in Manhattan, Lord & Taylor's flagship store (424 Fifth Avenue) will have a special event featuring Mandi Norwood, author of MICHELLE STYLE.

So, if you are in the area, please join us to celebrate Fashion's Night Out (and the First Lady of Fashion)!

Starting at 6:30 PM, bubbly will flow as Mandi signs complimentary copies of MICHELLE STYLE for anyone who makes a purchase on the Fourth floor of the L&T store.

Don't miss the silent auction spotlighting the original designer sketches from the book (hand-drawn original art, signed by some of fashion's biggest names, such as Carolina Herrera, Isaac Mizrahi, Donna Ricco, and Sonia Rykiel). All proceeds benefit the Fashion Instutute of Technology (FIT)'s Educational Development Fund.
