Fashion shows and Glam After parties move over baby!
A whole camp cocktail weekend of glamour and giggles at the Burlesque Hall of Fame pageant was had by all, including the bemused casino goers that hadn’t a clue what was going on as we swaned by in our cocktail best. What with a Wedding on stage, Burlesque bowling and trips on a red Double Decker to pool side photo shoots around A Tiki bar were only some of it to tell.
Well I for one, will certainly be going to next years, that’s for sure.
A whole weekend, nearly a whole week of chances, to get dressed up and prance around in nice dresses, surrounded by true glitter arty is not a thing to miss. It's not very often you get the chance to get your frocks on (or off as the case maybe) and have a good time. The lady’s and gents were beautiful and funny in equal measures as sequins not sleaze was shimmied around and that was just the crowd!
I have been to many a celeb event, the odd ball or two around the world and I can honestly say, I have never seen so many nicely put together, well, elegant and imaginativly dressed people before all in one spot. It was visual heaven on and off stage as so many people made an effort.
Even an older casino gambling lady in the bathrooms at one of the intervals,thought we where all there for a fashion show.
Thank you to Holli-Mae from 21:CP for snapping my picture on two of the nights.x
