The kind folks at Conde' Nast asked moi to spread the word about this special contest, and how could I say no? Well, obviously, I could, but it's an excellent contest (so much more high-end than winning, say, a year's supply of Hamburger Helper. Not that I have ever eaten Hamburger Helper. One has to have standards.). Details below.
Nationwide contest brings “Fashion’s Number One Fan” to New York City for Fashion’s Night Out
Beginning Tuesday, July 27, fashionistas nationwide are invited to upload a 30- to 90-second video of themselves explaining why they love fashion for the chance to be chosen as Fashion’s Number One Fan and win a trip to New York City for Fashion’s Night Out.
CBS will choose the Top 10 video entries to be posted on CBS.com for one week – from August 24 to August 31 – during which people can log on to vote for their favorite and help determine the five finalists that will be in contention for the grand prize. On September 3, a panel of experts from CBS, Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and New York City & Company will select one of the five finalists as Fashion’s Number One Fan. The lucky winner will win a trip to New York City in September to be a part of the biggest fashion party in history: Fashion’s Night Out 2010! The deadline for submissions is August 20. Go to http://www.cbs.com/fno to enter and for more information.

A $500 Macy's electronic gift card, plus an appointment with a Macy’s by Appointment (MBA) personal shopper
So grab those webcams and have at it!
(Personally, "Number One Fan" always makes me think of Misery, but that probably means nothing to the younger generation.
