#1519 Windswept in Wellington

I’m here in our nation’s fair capital to attend WOW (the World of Wearable Arts Awards – which I keep mistakenly referring to as World of Warcraft, much to my embarrassment). Katherine and I flew in yesterday and arrived at our accommodation – the Museum Hotel – to quite the hilarious scenario. Sitting in the lobby was the cast and crew of New Zealand’s Next Top Model. You should have seen the producers’ faces when they saw us. Priceless. I promised them I wouldn’t reveal anything so I won’t, but trust me when I say that it was an amazing moment for us all. We’re going to the performance tonight, it’s my first time ever, and all I know is that it’s supposed to be a cross between a fashion show and Cirque du Soleil. More on that tomorrow.

    It’s amazing. Went on Sunday night. I was definitely WOWed. The childrens part was my favourite. Then Avante Guard. The theme was very fun too. Hope you enjoyed it.

    I’m surprised NZNTM are in Welly. Funny… though I thought I saw Elza (Nelly?) the other day… out of the corner of my eye.

    Classic! That’s a pretty public spot to have the final few all together, ie sitting in the lobby of a central city hotel. I would have thought they’d have been a little more secretive with the girls. I wouldn’t have blabbed had I been in your position either Isaac (just to a few of my closest friends…. ha!), so well done on keeping mum and not doing the old “Spoiler Alert!” on us!
