Here's noted hair stylist Mark De Alwis, CEO and artistic director of his famous Mark De Alwis Salon, where New York City's "beatiful people" keep themselves looking fabulous. With New York Fashion Week upon us once again, the Salon is the site of Monday's Meals On Heels benefit event, bringing a galaxy of stars, and the latest fall/winter couture pieces from the arresting Re' Malhi collection. It's all on behalf of Citymeals On Wheels, a volunteer nonprofit dedicated to feeding NYC's senior citizens. What's not to love?

An Icon Returns!

What would the 1970s be, without the unforgettable Village People? Well, the iconic, rawhide-sexy cowboy, Randy Jones headlines Meals On Heels, bringing the Age of Disco right into the 21st century, not far from where it all began four decades ago. Randy's there for it, because we just can't stop the music. That's how we like it, too!

This is actor, film star, vocalist, and broadcaster extraordinaire Tym Moss luxuriating in the best way possible, before hosting Meals On Heels' fabulous Red Carpet. As the stars make their grand entrances, Tym will get their memorable quotes for his popular weekly radio show, Artists Exposed with Tym Moss. "It's an amazing honor to be part of Meals On Heels," Tym says, "and Mark is an incredibly talented stylist who always makes me look gorgeous!" A great beginning portends a truly magnificent evening, as legends converge to support their older neighbors!

From Both Sides Of The Pond...Brill!

For this unparalleled extravaganza, artists from both sides of the Atlantic are joining together in song. They include performances by Randy Jones, legendary Vilage Voice columnist, and award-winning TV personality, recording artist, actor, and author Michael Musto (above), Tym Moss, international pop star Aaron Paul, British rocker Sam Stevens, acclaimed recording artist Mike Greco, and beloved entertainer Dorothy Boshop. As they fill the night with music, a display of Mark's trendsetting hairstyles will electrify one and all, complementing Re'Malhi's runway show. Celebrity photographer Billy Hess partnered with the good offices of World Star PR to make it all happen. Fashionistas, this is your stop!

A Touch Of Blue

Also on hand will be up-and-coming singer/songwriter Nina Blue, a captivating young vocalist with a deep, unique artistic vision. She's been featured on American Idol's Season 12, and performed before sold-out auduiences at such landmark NYC venues as The Cutting Room, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Metropolitan Room. Nina has also appeared at Lincoln Centrer, and world-renowned Carnegie Hall. Nina is working on her debut album, and you can see her jazzing it up every Friday evening at the Nylo Hotel from eight to ten. But, this Monday, it's all about Meals On Heels!

The Cops Are Here

Yes, the police are here, too! Chart-busting singer Aaron Paul, above, earned his badge as an Us Weekly Magazine Fashion Cop, laying down the law on what's hot, and what's a hot mess, in celebrity styles. He'll also be all over NYC in the days before Meals On Heels, hosting Small Boutique Fashion Week, and performing at SM Global Catwalk Season 5. It all leads up to Mark's salon, so get there before this fabulous po-po catches you! RSVP for Meals on Heels here, and bring your fashion-forward best, hunny!
