    Courtesy of MTV, Whitney Port’s gotten coffee and rolled calls (and racks!) for some of fashion’s heaviest hitters like Lisa Love, Kelly Cutrone, and DvF, and been witness to some pretty notorious catfights — all while unforgiving cameras caught it on tape. But, there’s no arguing that the brown-eyed girl handled it with go-getter grace, and her résumé's no joke, regardless of where you stand in the great reality-TV debate. By 2008, when Port launched her femme cocktail-style collection, Whitney Eve, she clearly had enough clout to go it alone.

    So, cut to 2012 and Port is still going strong. Before she jets off to NYFW for the line's second runway show, we caught up with the stunner for an exclusive sneak peek of what's in store — and, of course, we got a glimpse inside her chill pad along the Venice Canals. We were pleasantly surprised at how unafraid Port was to get real (really!). After clicking through this adorable spread, we think you'll come to love Whitney unscripted, too.

Still, we know those days and those pieces are completely necessary. But, don't read
