at . Comments

Right now, she's TV's most famous corpse. But Ellen Pompeo will soon be charting a new course in her career, albeit briefly: fashion mogul.

Pompeo, who plays the title character on Grey's Anatomy, is one of many celebrities slated to appear at the Swarovski "Fashion Rocks" event, starting today as part of the festivities during Oscars week.

Ellen Pompeo: Corpse to Fashion Mogul
While Grey's Anatomy fans wait patiently to find out if Pompeo's character, Meredith Grey, will be brought back to life, Pompeo is preparing to lend her celebrity to the event which aims to bring the world of runway fashion into the mainstream.

Launched in London in 2003, Runway Rocks has traveled to Paris, New York, Barcelona and Tokyo, and comes to Los Angles for the first time this year.

The show will include designs from Cate Adair, Christopher Kane, Tae Ashida, Shaun Leane and Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen, Tarina Tarantino and more.

This is the first time Pompeo has attended the event, which has attracted celebrities as diverse as Courtney Love, Cheryl Tiegs, and Fran Drescher.

The show takes place today in L.A. Expect Pompeo to be descended upon by reporters looking to pry loose word on her Grey's Anatomy alter ego, who is at least mostly dead. Rumors have run rampant as to whether her character stays dead, or will be brought back to life. Which will it be?

This Star is being outshined by the Actors around her. Ellen isn't so hot. I like Redheads.


for "ria's" comment. it probably WILL bomb. the only thing is, the FRIENDS spin off Joey was surprisingly good. so it can't quite be judged yet.


except for the csis, which have different cast members anyway, i HATE spinoffs! i think both greys anatomy and the spinoff will be weaker for this decision do do away with addison.


If i didn't love her so much. I would hate her for being soooo gorgeous.


She'll be awesome xD




Grey's Anatomy Quotes

If I did my job well, it's not because people listened to me. It's because they believed in me. Believed that I knew them well enough and believed in them enough to tell them how and when to use their brilliance.


There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
