Rain and Shine: Junior League of San Francisco Fashion Show Launch Party

The Junior League of San Francisco never lets a little rain come down on their parade. Proof positive? Last night’s poppin’ launch party for the 85th Annual “A Fashionable Legacy” Fashion Show Gala . Partygoers came out to the swank One Leidesdorff in high-heeled droves braving wind-blown ’dos and soggy weather for the shindig, which featured a silent auction, live ’80s cover band, apps and cocktails.

Preparation for the main event, to be held on April 8 at the Fairmont Hotel, goes on for months and even includes model training and try-outs among its members— for those divalicious enough to walk the runway. I participated as a judge on the model panel again this year, which society photographer Moanalani Jeffrey blogged about here in her Examiner column.

Tickets are still on sale for the gala, which takes place both as a luncheon and black-tie affair, and benefits the various charitable organizations for children and families supported by the league.

My lovely friend Anne Nguyen (right) joined me for the flight-themed party, complete with "flight attendants" passing out wing-shaped pins.

Cover band Pop Rocks rocked on the stage--and off-- at One Leidesdorff.
