Daniel Vosovic In Chicago Today!

This is very late notice, but if you are in or around the Magnificent Mile this afternoon you can meet Daniel Vosovic! He will also be appearing at the FAME fashion show this evening at 8:00 p.m. BPR Field Reporters, you know the drill. Photos and reports would be most appreciated! Thanks pc!

How far is it from Detroit to Chicago, Tbone? You can make it if you hurry!

Tbone said...

I could make the fashion show, but I'd have to really haul to see him at the Westfield North Bridge Mall.

I have a date with my poker buddies tonight. They would not be pleased if I ditched them for DV. Now if it were Chloe we were talking about....all bets would be literally off!

Do you think it's too late for me to get a flight out of JFK???

Ok, that may be pushing stalker territory...

I just got back from meeting him. He's sooo sweet and polite, and even cuter in person which I didn't think possible. I kept yelping while I was in line, "OMG he's so cute!" We got an autograhed picture from him, the picture being the avatar being used by jan the dan fan. I told him that the folks from Blogging Project Runway say a big hello, and he asked me to pass on the message to Laura that he will have a summary for her soon. I took some pictures, again with a paper camera (I swear I'm going to invest in a small, very totable digital camera soon) which will take some time to develop. As soon as they are ready I will send to BPR. Now, I just need to meet Chloe, which would be the holy grail for me.

Well done pc - you have the Chicago beat completely covered!

One more thing to add: my friend and I were scheming on the way there how to repeat our Tim/Nick martini delivery, and came up with perhaps getting Daniel V a 40. To our disappointment, the Walgreens down the street didn't have it. Would've been a great repeat of our Tim and Nick experience.

pc - I have suggested to Laura that the next Blog Producers Meeting should be in Houston :).

I think we need to invite our field reporters also!

PC, you are amazing! Well done! (Yes, I would have yelped, too.)

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Oooooh... I'm seething with jealousy, but very excited for you as well.
Daniel is just as wonderful in prson as he was shown on TV. He's the best.

Just wanted to share my pleasant little encounter with Daniel V in Chicago tonight -- I couldn't make the autograph event during the day because of work (why do they have those things in the middle of the day??) So I went to the fashion show tonight and somehow got myself in (I wasn't aware that it wasn't a public event and there were tickets involved...but they let me in anyway!). It was very interesting; I've never been to a real fashion show before and I was impressed. I also spotted DV sitting in the front row looking all awesome. After the show, he said a few words on the runway and presented a scholarship award to one of the designers (apparently they had a contest for who could create the best dress incorporating Westfield gift cards -- and it was really fantastic!)

After it was over, I wanted to see if I could meet him (of course), so I waited a little and he emerged and I suddenly got very nervous and ridiculously shy. I was close to bailing out but I told myself, No! You want to meet the man! Here's right there, just do it (Make it work!). He was about to walk past me and I very awkwardly touched his arm and said "Excuse me" and felt like I went mute or something. I was a fumbling loser, said the most cliched things ever and could barely get out two sentences without struggling -- but Daniel was very sweet. Asked for my name, shook my hand, was very soft-spoken and lovely. And so darn cute up close. It's been said before, but yes, the man is truly good-looking and has the BEST hair of anyone, hands down. I'm pretty certain he was wearing the black jacket he wore to his PR runway show and he was very yummy. I appreciate him being so nice to such an obviously nervous woman. I wish I hadn't been so silly and had remembered to at least say something ORIGINAL or ask him something, but I must've shut down. My nerves got in the way! And I just have to add that I've met a couple "famous" people in my life, the most famous one being Orlando Bloom -- and for some reason, I had never felt so nervous and befuddled as I did tonight! Very weird... Daniel, you have a hypnotizing power or something. But it's really nice. I'm glad I got to experience it for a few moments. I just wish I'd remembered to compliment his hair...

I'm so tickled that I have my own little Daniel V story. Love love love him!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Hypnotizing power! Ha!

I agree!!! I was awe-struck by his presence and could not speak an intelligent full sentence myself.

A bit jealous, but so happy and excited to hear of other Dan Fan's getting to meet him too!

The Scarlett said...

Awwww... I wish I, too, could be hypnotized by Daniel Vosovic.

Melzo said...

My best friend's sister showed her dress in that fashion show and one first place and also got to meet Daniel. So that was cool. Too bad I didn't go. But then again I'm more of a Santino fan.

This is great! Thanks so much for the recap. I have to catch myself because I find that I'm living vicariously through you guys. Oh well, keep it up!

I saw him later on in the evening. :)
