Fanfare: Rose Gold Dreams raises money for Make-A-Wish
It started seven years ago with oh, maybe 20 of Jennifer Noah's girlfriends.
“We would literally get all dressed up, drink champagne, and just watch the Victoria's Secret fashion show. And over time more and more people started joining us. Three years ago, we were up to fifty people and I figured we could do something with it,” she said.
On November 28, that “something” morphed into the Rose Gold Dreams fashion show viewing party to not only toast the heavenly bodies gracing the runway of the Victoria's Secret runway show in Shanghai, but also, to raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
“Pittsburgh is absolutely ready for this,” said Jaime Chesney.
With a stream of young professionals streaming into Poros in Market Square, mortals mingled with models donning dresses from Windsor Boutique along with the iconic Victoria's Secret angel wings, which naturally served to inspire.
“If there was an extra pair I'd have them on right now,” laughed co-host Michael Montgomery.
Around 10 pm, the live broadcast of the runway show was set to ignite a projection screen set up near the bar, leaving plenty of time for the requisite selfies and more than a few second glances.
