The Chocolate Show is coming! The Chocolate Show is coming! We know where we'll be camped out this weekend . . .

The Chocolate Fashion Show combines chocolate and couture, in original and delicious designs by top designers such as Nicole Miller, Patricia Field, Sylvia Heisel, Ann Taylor and Suss Cousins. The fashion show will be hosted by tastemaker and style authority Robert Verdi, co-host of the Discovery Channel’s Surprise by Design and host of E! Network’s Fashion Police
