On April 10, the Men and Women of Fashion held their annual “Prix d’Elegance Luncheon” at the Hilton Riverside Hotel. Every year, this organization honors the best-dressed men and women, as well as leading philanthropists and business leaders in New Orleans. The luncheon benefitted the Ballet Resource and Volunteer Organization, which assists the New Orleans Ballet Association and its mission to provide education and scholarship funds to deserving dancers.

The event was chaired by Sandra Chaisson and emceed by Juli Miller Hart. Lee Giorgio, president of Men of Fashion, and Jacquee Carvin, president of Women of Fashion, were on-hand to honor the best-dressed honorees.

With New Orleans’ unofficial title of “Hollywood South,” the luncheon’s theme, ”The Golden Age of Hollywood,” was appropriate. The event featured a fashion show with pieces from Chatta Box boutique and Jeff’s Haberdashery. In addition, guests enjoyed a three-course feast that featured Louisiana crawfish tails, Chappapeela Farms’ duck-leg confit and baba au rhum, with a praline rum glaze, for dessert.    

Guests bid also on premier auction items, including antique pearl-and-gold jewelry by Friend and Company, as well as a four-night European adventure.
