Last Thursday, in the throes of the Campbell’s Tennis Hall of Fame Championships, Angela Moore hosted her 12th Annual Fashion Show & Champagne Breakfast. The buzz was already at record levels with Andre Agassi‘s and Peachy Kellmeyer‘s pending inductions, but the biggest fashion show in its history added to the high spirits.
As the bubbly flowed, unabashedly preppy and signature City-by-the-Sea looks for men, women and children strutted the runway, all reflecting the theme of this year’s show, “Summer Fashions … Newport Style!” Three sets were presented: Daytime Dazzle, Fun in the Sun and Moonlight Magic (evening wear).
The event grossed more than $30,000 in proceeds that will go towards maintaining and enhancing the International Tennis Hall of Fame, bringing the total raised through the Angela Moore fashion shows to over $250,000. Without further adieu, here’s some great shots from the show (see even more photos after the jump)!

It wouldn’t be summer in Newport without raising a glass of bubbly at the Angela Moore Fashion Show and Champagne Breakfast at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Taking place July 7th from 8:30 a.m. – 11 a.m., the much-loved morning of fashion, fun and philanthropy celebrates the best of Newport summer style with looks from Lilly Pulitzer, Manuel Canovas, Christopher Blue, Julie Brown and Jack Rogers, paired with Dolce Vita shoes, Moyna bags, Onigo hats, Angela Moore jewelry and more.
This year’s show, which features a mix of swimwear, cocktail dresses, sassy separates, plus colorful accessories, beaded sandals, must-have bags and wraps, will include 2011 Tennis Hall of Fame inductee Peachy Kellmeyer, nationally-known tennis commentator Bud Collins and other ATP World Tour stars competing in the championships. Rhode Island locals will recognize models including Miss Rhode Island 2009 Ashley Bickford, NBC 10 sports anchor Frank Carpano, Newport Mayor Steve Waluk and other well-known Newporters.

This Saturday, Angela Moore welcomes Jack Rogers design director Steven Stolman along with the summer 2011 collection. The excitement begins with the duo appearing from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Newport Flower Show at Rosecliff in the Garden Marketplace, and continues at the Angela Moore boutique from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. where the shop will be giving away a pair!
As Jack Rogers loyalists know, the brand has been a consummate favorite of the fashionably unfussy for more than half a decade. It’s most famous style icon was unequivocally Jackie O, who embraced the shoe’s simple whipstitch design and quality workmanship. (There’s a long standing debate if she wore Jack Rogers or Stephen Bonanno, some say both, and each have similarities). When I caught “Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years: Selections from the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum,” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (curated by Hamish Bowles, who was in Newport last summer), there was a fabulous photograph of Jackie in Palm Beach sporting Jack Rogers style shoes in a 1962 photo (the above photo was also taken in the early 60s), and many more shots caught her in the fabulous footwear through the years. Regardless of the debate, the Navajo style sandal is timeless and enduring.
