Fashion Ball

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Where you see nautical stripes and American heritage, Grant Whittaker imagines red sequined marching band jackets with white tights and combat boots. Grant is a true original, and we’re so lucky to have him in the Twin Cities – styling, producing, shaking his booty, and encouraging everyone to embrace the inner diva. When you look good, you feel good – whether that’s a simple, fitted dress with sexy heels…or, perhaps gold sequined bikini bottoms over lace tights and a fishnet top. The second annual Fashion Ball at the Ritz Theater was an entertaining romp through spring trends with superfly dance segments by Ballet of the Dolls. So amusing to see Grethen House and BluePeg designer threads taken downtown. Joynoelle closed the show with a sharp new collection of bridal fashions.

Fashion: It’s a ball

IMG_0363 And to think, I worried my sparkly eyeshadow was a little bit over the top. Leave it to stylist, dancer, dreamer Grant Whittaker to create an event that brings together burlesque dancers, pageant queens and upper crust clients from Edina boutique Grethen House N'Etc. The Fashion Ball at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis combined over-the-top dance numbers by Ballet of the Dolls with runway segments featuring some knock-out looks from Grethen House and J. Novachis. It was glittery, raw and irreverent, as only male dancers in wedding dresses and head-to-toe leopard print can be. Fun. Exactly what fashion should be.
