"I like a woman in something sexy yet comfortable," Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora told StyleList of his line, White Trash Beautiful, at the label's LA Fashion Week Spring 2011 show.

The rocker's daughter with Heather Locklear, 13-year-old Ava, walked for the second season on the WTB runway, which had a number of '80s touches this time around.

"I'm enormously proud of her as a model but she does not have much creative say on the line," Sambora said. "She does tell her dad when she thinks he looks like [bleep], though."

Sambora's design partner, Nikki Lund, was clad in a White Trash Beautiful strapless feathered gown.

Lund said her inspiration came from "[Queen] Elizabeth the first. I love her, she's an anarchist. It's all about causing trouble!"

"Desperate Housewives" star Brenda Strong told StyleList: "There were two things I liked about the '80s: I like shoulder pads, and if we could bring back bulky sweaters and tights, then I would live in them. I don't need to relive the hair, though."

Former "American Idol" contestant Kimberly Caldwell wore a short dress with dramatic flowing sleeves by the design duo. "I love Nikki and I love Richie, and I knew when they were coming out with a line it would be for me! It's rock-and-roll and edgy. Personally, I never thought '80s fashion left."

Caldwell laughed and added, "But, I did get on a lot of Worst Dressed lists, so I guess it did!"
