The Glamorous Life: Superstar Spokesmodel Jada Collins Prepares for a Night of Elegance and Style at the Ebony Fashion Fair Show


Cobb, Vandell, Ebony


Exuding confidence, style elegance and grace, Jada Collins makes the life of a world-class supermodel look effortless. Yet traveling to a different city every day with the world's premier traveling fashion show is anything easy. The rehearsals, press appearances, red carpet events and preparation for the big night can be hectic. But when you have a team of professionals by your side, it makes preparation for the big night go more smoothly. "We do more than 170 shows a year, so there is a lot of movement, a lot of traveling and we're constantly in and out of different hotels," says Jada, commentator for Ebony Fashion Fair and spokesmodel for Fashion Fair Cosmetics.

"It's really sleek and classy, just like Jada, and I think the unique combination of styling, capability and driving dynamics of the car is the perfect complement for the woman on the go." Jada isn't the only one who can ride in style. Every ticketholder at every show has a chance to qualify to win a 2007 Ford Edge. One Ford Edge will be given away after the end of the 49th annual tour.

MY STYLE, MY WAY: Getting ready for the show is just as important as being there, and Jada has a dynamic team to help make sure she is looking fabulously glamorous for both the red carpet and the fashion show. SoftSheen-Carson and Fashion Fair Cosmetics make up the official Glam Squad for the 49th annual Ebony Fashion Fair. …
