LOCAL: Fashion's Fight Against Cancer Fashion Show

Last Friday was Tallahassee's Third Annual Fashion's Fight Against Cancer, an event that focuses on bringing breast cancer awareness to the city through fashion and entertainment. For a $30 ticket (a portion of which went to the American Cancer Society), guests were treated to a runway show of over 90 designs from BCBG, Banana Republic, White House Black Market, Blu Heaven Boutique, FSU Alumni, Buckle, and designer L. Allen. Food and drinks were also provided by Chili's as well as entertainment by local musicians and the FSU Dance Department.

As some of you guys know, I work at BCBG (and have done previous fashion shows) and even though I had other plans that night, I couldn't say no to my wonderful boss who needed help with the event. Also, I had recruited one of my gorgeous sorority sisters, Jackie (below in the teal jumper), and I wanted to be there to support her as it was her first time modeling in a runway show.

The show started a lot later than we expected (9pm instead of 7) and our poor models - many who had been there since 4pm didn't walk until 9:30. Luckily, they kept everyone fed and the show, otherwise, ran without any glitches. Luckily, we had enough backstage help that during the actual BCBG portion of the show, I was able to take pictures of the models on the runway. Below are just a few of the pictures I took from the night. All outfits and accessories are, of course, BCBGMAXAZRIA. Makeup by M.A.C.

Model line up - everyone looks so pretty!

Dancer twins Gwen and Emily looked so ethereal - LOVE their fair skin!

Jackie and Gloria looked killer in their trendy jumpsuits.

Esteffania and Alex (a BCBG customer I also recruited that same day) showed us how to do striped blazers right.

Khadija (what gorgeous hair!) and Chanel (someone give this girl a modeling contract STAT!) seemed like they were born to model.

Jackie provided a strong opening for the show, while Nathalie rocked this awesome sequin/leopard print combo

Ashley, who seemed like she'd been doing this for years, looked super fierce in both her looks.

Jackie and Gloria striking poses with their matching envelope clutches like pros.

Punam and I wearing matching power skirts.

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures!
