The Hills reality TV star Whitney Port was seen click-clacking around LA Fashion Week doing the PR thing, which is apparently high-drama for the upcoming season, which begins tonight. In a review of the show, the New York Times notes: "By showing one short job interview Whitney has with the owner of a fashion-publicity company called People’s Revolution, The Hills captures the delusional self-seriousness of the fashion business better than any episode of Project Runway. 'You'll give up your life,' the owner tells her. Of course Whitney, Lauren and Heidi already have, and America has shown its gratitude." [NYT]
