New York-based magazine Marie Claire paid a visit to Hollywood Wednesday night to find out what LA gals dig about their bodies (not including the silicone/restylane/botox enhanced parts).

The event was held at the not-so-hip-anymore club Mood, and was promoted to some (including us) as a model search. In fact, the photo shoot was for a monthly feature called “Beauty Roadshow,” a photo montage of women from different states and a blurb from each about their favorite physical feature. The wannabe models at Mood weren’t deterred -- a famous magazine and a photographer were enough to make the event worth stopping by.

When we got there at 9:30 there was already a sizable line of girls hoping for a close-up (they didn’t shoot everyone). Marie Claire Beauty Director Didi Gluck said in some cities they have to cajole people to be photographed, but she didn’t expect that with the LA crowd.

“What I pictured is what we got. Everybody is super attractive and confident about their looks,” said Gluck.

"Typical club girls coming out in their tight dresses and push-up bras to try and get some attention," we said dismissively. When Gluck asked US to be photographed, we were a little hesitant (“Oh, I couldn’t!). But we eventually agreed (two seconds later) and then modestly described why we love our hot legs. Hey, we just happened to be there on business…
