Photos: Fashion in Action with Mondo Guerra

Over 200 showed up to last night’s fab Dining Out for Life benefit at the Palomar Hotel.

Over 200 gays, lesbians, straight allies, drag queens and all-around fashionistas showed up to last night’s fab Dining Out for Life fundraiser, Fashion in Action, at the Palomar Hotel. The guest of honor, Mondo Guerra, was in the house with an entourage of supermodels — two male, three female — and an armful of cute T-shirts (see photo below) he designed especially for the event. Decked in a fitted red suit, the reality show star kicked off the soiree with an almost tear-jerking speech about how his revelation on Project Runway that he had HIV led to his involvement with Dining Out for Life, and how important it is for him to see it succeed. After that, he made himself readily available to revelers, signing tees and posing for pics. I took a bunch of photos of him and some of the other evening’s attendees. You can see them all after the jump, and check out HughE Dillon’s much-better-quality shots on the Philly Post
