Take a deep breath -- the Coalition for Clean Air is having its Always in Fashion fundraiser tonight, Nov. 17. LA's bravest public servants hit the catwalk to model clothing manufactured in an eco-friendly way. Will City Councilman Tom La Bonge be sporting Timberland? Will Council President Alex Padilla be in Patagonia?

Can you pick out the elected official in the picture above?* OK, it wasn't that hard. But the semi-professionalism is what makes events like this one fun. 28 public servants will be heading up and down the runway and showing off clothes you might actually be able to wear. If you've got a spare $150, why not check it out. It's going to charity, after all.
