Pink for the Cure @ Dupont Building
The Passionately Pink for the Cure benefit at the Dupont Tuesday night was a thoroughly glamorous affair. There were so many shades of pink represented it would have made Reese Witherspoon's character in Legally Blonde blush with envy. The Dupont is an amazing venue for fashion shows - soaring ceilings and turn-of-the-century architecture gives it that old New York feel. The caterer got a little wacky with the desserts - mini ice cream cones were a big hit.
A nice element of the fashion show was how the organizers had breast cancer survivors walk the catwalk in dazzling evening gowns. There was not a dry eye in the house and everyone stood up to give them standing ovations.
