Dania Ramirez stopped by the Latina offices last week during a short break amidst the hectic NYC Fashion Week activities she participated in. The gorgeous dominicana is also currently filming a movie here in New York with Joseph Gordon Levitt (Premium Rush) so Ramirez is one busy lady!

We asked her about her recent experience walking the runway for the bobi/Boy Meets Girl/Caravan Spring 2011 show at Style360 during fashion week, and she admitted, "I was so nervous. I didn't want to fall!" We can't blame her, due to her busy schedule she wasn't even able to do a run through. "I've been so busy I wasn't able to practice with the shoes on, so we only did one run through with my flip flops when I actually got there for the show."

"I was just nervous because I didn't want to mess up and it was kind of slippery," says Ramirez. "It was fun though! I loved pretending that i was a model for a day."

Ramirez joked around that she loved the opportunity to practice her fierce faces, telling us: "I did everything, I'm crazy! I was like, I'm going to be serious for part of the runway and then I'm going to smile for the other half and then I got to the top and I was like [strikes a fabulous pose]."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
