See what an early Mardi Gras looked like
Chiquita Taylor and Eddie Harper hosted the show, which raised money for children's cancer research through the Jeanette Williams Foundation.
Without a doubt, Mardi Gras came to League City on Nov. 12. The theme for the Fashion Show With A Mardi Gras Flair was "Under the Sea." The entire venue was flooded with blue lights, boas, feathers, sea shells and even live gold fish in the center pieces.
Lovely dancers from Jill Rauscher's School of Dance, opened up the show with their interpretive Under The Sea performance. The models, dressed as sea goddesses, wore beautiful gowns from Jill's Fashions and Bridal. They strolled and sashayed through the very lively crowd of Mardi Gras Krewes, friends and family.
The Jeanette Williams Foundation gave their founder, Dianne Troop, a standing ovation as she entered the room wearing a colorful pink cocktail dress and waist length flowing pink hair. Sparkling with rhinestones and pearls each model, representing their Krewe or organization, wore color coordinated wigs, shoes and dresses. It was a sea of beauty walking the runway.
Not to be outdone, Alex Petty of Z Krewe and Bob Stokes of the Galveston Bay Foundation strutted their way down the carpet in a combination of Zoot suits and tuxes with colorful accessories.
In the main room at Butler's Courtyard was an amazing trunk show; shoes, gowns of every color, texture and style, accessories.
