JUDGE DREAD Garcia (Photo: Getty Images)
Reality television is just like real life—or so it seemed during a recent signing of Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style. The Elle magazine fashion director and Project Runway judge was nearly overtaken at the Chelsea Barnes & Noble in Manhattan on Monday night, when she was confronted with enough crazies and wannabe industry pros to cast a dozen seasons of Runway contestants.
Garcia tried in earnest to talk about her book—which includes such invaluable gems about every woman's need for a handful of basic items, being your own designer and muse, and her hatred for "it" bags—but the crowd remained eerily and unnervingly quiet in the cramped quarters.
Until the angry masses demanded to be heard.
