Caitlin McCollough, a model and editor at the East Bay's Diablo magazine, writes today in the publication about her recent trips down the runway in Benicia, a tiny beach town in the East Bay. Each year the town hosts a fashion show, and 2013's was a bit star-studded, with American's Next Top Model contestant and author Naima Mora in red beret and signing copies of her book, Model Behavior, and Lluvy Gomez, also from ANTM. Both walked in Benicia's event in designs by Richard Hallmarq from Project Runway and Joseph Ribkoff. Shop for both designers in Benicia boutiques next time you're over there! Turns out the little coastal town with the hippie rep is totally chic!
