Don't ask us how we got there, but over the weekend, we ended up at Cocktail Bar and Grill in Lakeview. While we were there, we recall quite a bit of commotion in the far corner of the room. As we cautiously approached to see what was going on, it became apparent that fashion designer and Bravo's The Fashion Show contestant Calvin Tran bustin' out some serious moves with his friends. We ask him to put down his Grey Goose dirty martini so we don't get wet during his vogueing.
Snapping some pics through the crowd, we shout to Calvin over the music, asking him who he's wearing. Whipping his hair back and forth, he shouts back, "Prada shoes, Jil Sander pant, Wang shirt!" Calvin holds up his left hand displaying a Panerai watch and his right hand flaunting a Cartier.
When he was out of breath, and almost half done with his Grey Goose, the Cocktail waitress approached and he ordered another. [Apparently watches aren't the only accessory he's double fisting] We ask him whats new after life in Bravo's spotlight and whats going on in New York. Calvin tells us to keep watching the re-runs especially this week.
