On March 4, BET will air the Rip the Runway special, a fashion and music special that will feature “urban-themed” collections from some major designers, and performances from some major hip hop names.
The show is also Snoop Dogg’s chance to launch Rich and Infamous and Co Co Ri, the clothing lines he is starting with his wife Shante Broadus.
Joining the fashion and hip hop luminaries are several faces that will be familiar to America’s Next Top Model fans, including one plus-sized favorite, a recent winner, and one recent “bad girl.”
The show will be featuring Toccara Jones, the plus-sized charmer from cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model. She will be joined by Cycle 8 winner Jaslene Gonzalez, and Cycle 9’s troublemaker Bianca Golden, both of whom also recently walked in the Project Runway season finale shows. And – going back into nearly the very beginnings of America’s Next Top Model, cycle 2’s Camille McDonald will also make an appearance.
Musical acts on the show include Snoop, Missy, N.E.R.D, Day 26, Cheri Dennis, Webbie, Trey Songz and Flo Rida featuring T-Pain. Other celebrity models musical artists, television stars and athletes such as Charlie Baltimore (female rapper), Teyana Taylor (singer/rapper Star Track Entertainment), Corey Webster (NY Giants), Sam Madison (NY Giants), Brandon London (NY Giants), BET’s own, Rocsi and Terrence, Brandon T. Jackson (Roll Bounce), Lil Snoop (The Wire), Cassie (Bad Boy R&B singer/model), Ezra Masters (aka Buddha from VH1’s I Love New York), Terrell Carter (Diary of a Mad Black Woman), and show host Lauren London. Fashions will be featured from Zac Posen, Sean John, Respect M.E. (Missy Elliott Collection for Adidas), Apple Bottom, Qristyl Designs, Monif C, Sixx Foota, and Amaya Swimwear.
You can see your America’s Next Top Model alum in action on Rip the Runway on March 4 at 10pm.
