Kate Gosselin Walks the Runway During New York Fashion Week!
Kate Gosselin sure loves the cameras!
The former TLC reality star, 37, made her first-ever appearance at New York Fashion Week when she walked in the "Real Fashion, Real Women" runway show at the Empire Hotel September 12. The event was held on behalf of Bottomless Closet, an organization that helps disadvantaged women become more self-sufficient.
"I love supporting causes that make a huge difference in women's lives!" the single mother-of-eight tweeted prior to strutting her stuff on the catwalk.
Looking tanned as ever, the one-time Dancing With the Stars competitor glided down the runway in a draped white dress with silver embellishments. Gosselin's blonde hair was curled and hung loose below her shoulders. Real Housewives of New York City star Aviva Drescher also participated in the fashion show.
Despite Gosselin's sometimes polarizing persona, the show's host and organizer, Derek Warburton, told the Huffington Post she was "so nice, sweet and accommodating and cool" when they approached her to model.
"We have all been in Twitter wars about Kate," Warburton said. "They were attacking us for having her in the show. I responded saying, 'Listen, we are not paying her. She is doing this out of the goodness of her heart.' What's remarkable is every time we get a nasty tweet about Kate, she writes and apologizes. She doesn't care about the haters, but she cares about us, the charity. She must have apologized to me five times for what people say about her."
