The Best of Milwaukee Awards are intended as a special private event, just for the nominees and their entourages (Tom is my entourage tonight), but in case you'd like to behave like savage paparazzi and in case there's some kind of red-carpetty thing, the event's at the Turner Ballroom at 6:30 p.m., and I'll be arriving around 6:10, to allow everyone quasi-sufficient time to acclimate to my attire's ponderous bulk and alarming appearance.
Tonight's gown (the one I debuted this past summer) features fabric selected by T. Stacy Hicks, sleeves conceived by Stacy and designed by Tom, and an overall design by me, based on an Elizabethan silhouette and modern audience's ideas about what a jester is. Tonight's goblet is by Faire Maiden Glass, received as a wedding gift from the impeccably-tasteful Denise Prohaska. See you in the society pages! XO
