Recently, The Gold Coast Room at the Drake Hotel was packed with beautiful fifty year old women. Dyed fur, intriguing prints, and elegant fabrications grazed the runway.
The evening was filled with an array of entertainment from high-end fashion to Jesse Carbonier’s live performance that was captured by Carasco. Chicago native Candace Jordan arrived in a stunning blue Elda de la Rosa cocktail dress and Cece & Melinda were a vision in long beaded gowns from the International House of Couture. The ladies who attended to model and those who came to watch the show came dressed to the nines from diamonds to Louboutins.
Famed purveyor of beauty Charles Ifergan was on-site for all the women who modeled for hair and make-up so that everyone looked their absolute best for the special evening. -Shelby Steiner
