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.

The 7th annual event raised over $1K for Make-A-Wish

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
