Grab that Givenchy! Walk the Red Carpet in Newport

February 26, 2011 at 6:33 pm Leave a comment

Wanna walk the Red Carpet? The Friends of the Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center are hosting a Red Carpet Gala & Live Screening Party Sunday. Don that ballgown if you like, or slide on your favorite pair of jeans—the choice is yours because the official dress code is “blue jeans to black tie.”

With promises of gregarious glamour, the one-night only event includes hors d’oeuvres, champagne, wine and beer (all cash bar), and a live auction and raffle with great prizes. Prepare for the paparazzi, then sit back and who takes top prize in each category and how hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco (who’s been popping up around Providence these days per his RISD classes) fair. Proceeds from the event will benefit efforts to upgrade the heating system in the Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center.

To Go: $35 ticket for the whole evening, (6:30 arrival for Red Carpet), appetizers, dessert and awards screening. / $15 ticket for 7:45 arrival, desserts & coffee. Tickets may be purchased on-line at or at the box office at 49 Touro Street. The live screening starts at 8pm.

Me? I’ll be busy taking notes for an early morning appearance on The Rhode Show to talk Red Carpet fashion—who was hot and who was not. I’d love to know who YOU think wears it best, and who’s a hot mess! Leave a comment here, post on my Facebook, or Tweet me at @newportSTYLE!

Then, tune in at 8am on Fox Providence on Monday morning as stylist and friend Jill Marinelli and I dish!
