The evening gowns were simply amazing! Yards and yards of silk chiffon, lace, and beautifully detailed embroidery. 20160419_130550 20160419_130602

Below is the coat that Laura Bush wore for her husbands first inauguration. Tons of French knots on her very petite coat. What elegance and class. 20160419_132502 20160419_132626

I have to say I was very surprised to see that many of the evening gowns had no hems on either the bottoms or the pieces in between. This frothy silk chiffon with layers and layers of bias strips had no hems. Hems would have made it look stiff I think. 20160419_133026 20160419_133037

The dress below with each flower hand embroidered and put on in a 3-D manner, was worn by Rhianna at the Brit’s awards in 2011. 20160419_133155

The green gown on the left was worn by Nicki Minaj. Did you know that Nicki designed some pretty cool clothes for K-Mart? Oh my, I musn’t utter the word K-Mart amongst all this gorgeous couture. 20160419_133238 20160419_133500

San Francisco Bay. A little more to the right is the Golden Gate Bridge, but only the tiniest portion of the bridge towers even shows. The 360 degree views from this vantage give a new perspective on the city by the bay. 20160419_142118 20160419_142015
