Christian Audigier unveiled his Spring 2009 Collection at LA's Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and who better to have at his aristocracy-themed show than teen queen Miley Cyrus and runway royal Heidi Klum?

Audigier is probably best known for his ubiquitous Ed Hardy vintage tattoo wear, and counts Britney Spears among his biggest celebrity clients.
But his newest collection, American Lord, is more chic and street. The line merges two distinct attitudes: the formality of nobility and the anti-establishment subculture.

Heidi Klum looked on approvingly as models made their way down the grass-covered catwalk, which was flanked by Royal Guards. For the supermodel to appear at the show on the same night of the "Project Runway" finale showed just how much she supports Audigier and his work.
