Our rallying cry for this event—since we know our members are full of both old school gorgeousness and funky creativity—is "dress to impress." With photographers lining the red carpet snapping shots as you promenade into the historic, lavish venue, you're about to make Bay Area theatre history. So do it your way! "Dress to impress" in whatever way makes you feel like you rock this planet—because you do.
Attend in a tux or floor-length gown—perfect! Get all dolled up in vintage eveningwear, complete with gloves and hat—gorgeous! Lace up your least-paint-spattered pair of Chucks—right on! Dare to wear a color other than black—shock your friends!
So dig through those closets. Call up your well-heeled girlfriend to borrow that fab frock—or ask your big brother for that tux he wore at his wedding. There's still enough time to get that special piece dry-cleaned/altered/mended—or made, if you are lucky enough to be a costume designer or live with one!
Whatever you do, however you do it, dress to impress! We can't wait to see you strut your stuff next Monday.
