Celebrity guest judges included Jay McCarroll (L), the fashion designer known

Celebrity Fit Club and looking far from ugly in that gorgeous ensemble, equally as stylish Cara Kahn, (MTV Real World Chicago, and real life mommy of one and loving it. HughE Dillon (me), founder and editor of
PhillyChitChat, Weekly contributor to PhillyMag.com, Philly.com, Liberty City Press and Fox 29’s Good Day Philadelphia, and Esther Lee from Philly.com, Gregory Seitter, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Marketing Manager (and doing a darn good job), Marcello Luzi (I’ll have what he’s having, he looks fabulous!) and Ellen Himic. Ellen tells me she’s taking her dog, Stella, to KOP Mall on Saturday for her portrait with Santa. Interesting they use the same Santa and run two lines, one for kids and one for dogs.
Ryan Williams, Ted Meyer and Paul Corey. Ted’s sweater was a gift from his aunt 10 years ago; it’s only the 3rd time he’s worn it. I liked it. Paul bought his sweater for a Halloween costume and well it works on this night too.
Matt Parisi, Lisa Maguire and Jessica Franciosi. Lisa tells me she went into her mom’s closet and thought this was fairly ugly. (I hope her mom doesn’t read Philly Chit Chat)
John Ciantenio, Phil Cooper, Helen Chung and Mark Poddock. Personally I love Mark’s Santa number. Seems it’s his aunt’s favorite holiday outfit and sent Mark to get it dry cleaned. Mark thought he would wear it to a few parties before he returned it.
Brian Devaney, who’s wearing a festive dinosaur eating reindeer sweater (You can see him & the sweater in all it’s glory on Saturday night at McGillin’s where Brian bar-tends), with Julia Scherer who tells me her moms a teacher and those teachers love sweaters, Megan Askins and Emily Fernadez
