By autoshowglobal.com social media team

We’re always on the lookout for fashion statements at the show and the Chicago Auto Show never disappoints. Here’s a collage of some of our finds: Brianna Ortiz at the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 display is wearing Ralph Lauren Black Label long evening dress and Gucci shoes. Over at Jeep, model Alison Fiori was wearing Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s signature line called The Row. The wine-colored, fitted dress is made of fused leather, so that it moves with her as she walks about the vehicles. Her shoes: Christian Louboutin “Palais Royale.” At the Cadillac display of the new 2015 Cadillac ATS, model Rosemary Vivian-Sturr wore a black Halston Heritage dress with shoes by YSL. Sarah was standing next to the new Dodge Challenger, Diana with the Jaguar F-Type, Tiffany Doorn (below) in the Porsche stand and Trish was the star in the Ford display, but we had the most fun talking with former America’s Next Top Model Keenyah who’s representing Toyota for the week.
