With an opening performance by Brooke Hogan and a grand finale performance by up-and-coming singer and musician Priscilla Renea, it was an amazing, star-studded evening of fierce fashion and entertainment.

Chosen from thousands of entries, the seven gorgeous winners of Torrid's 2009 House of Dreams model search rocked the runway in cutting edge apparel and accessories by Torrid, and in couture gowns created by FIDM students.
