This morning's Ruffian show walked at 9 a.m., which was far too early for Rose McGowan's liking. "I had to get up at 6 for hair and makeup, and that’s 3 a.m. L.A. time. So I just feel ill," she complained backstage. What compelled her to attend? "The Ruffian boys are my friends. Unless I’m getting paid, I don’t get up this early; I'm doing this for love," she said. Nevertheless, she still looked quite polished, and wouldn't have it any other way: "I generally believe in being overdressed. I don’t believe in sweatpants and tennis shoes in public. I also have far deeper beliefs, but if we’re talking fashion ... " She trailed off. "I’m not completely insipid, just slightly."
