Ellen Pompeo: Corpse to Fashion Mogul

by 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 MogulWhile 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.
