Competition was fierce on Thursday during the annual Art in Bloom soiree held at the Carnegie Museum of Art and hosted by the Women's Committee, where it was hard to figure on what to focus on; the gorgeous floral displays or the gorgeous femme fatales floating by.

"Well, just because I'm going to be a mom doesn't mean I have to be lame," laughed seven-months-pregnant Mollie Lang , who effortlessly walked the walk in her 5-inch red stunners.

Elsewhere, party co-chairs Janet Hunt and Mardi Royston were circulating among WC prexy Debbie Dick, who was also celebrating her engagement to Art Stroyd, Laurie Bly, Liz Wilson, Kitty Hillman, Peggy McKnight, Gabriela Porges, Marcia Gumberg, Carole Kamin, Jay and Ranny Ferguson, Natural History director Sam Taylor, and new CMP prez John Wetenhall, who was soaking in the sights.

"It gave me the time to actually walk in the galleries and see what they look like," he mused.

Kicking off the three-day celebration, the halls were alive with jaw-dropping flower power by floral and event designers, including Allison McGeary Florist, Hepatica, Sean Gray International, Bloomers Floral Studio, and Toadflax, while local garden clubs presented arrangements that were interpretations of various works of art in the galleries.
