Written by | Ray Cornelius

History came to life Wednesday night as stars from the fashion documentary Versailles ’73 attended a special screening of the film in Atlanta, GA. The VIP event was in conjunction with MODA’s current fall fashion design exhibition Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair.  Legendary runway models Pat Cleveland and Ramona Saunders were in attendance along with iconic fashion designer Stephen Burrows, EBONY Fashion Fair commentator Audrey Smaltz and Versailles ’73  filmmaker Deborah Riley Draper.

The evening began with a champagne reception at MODA where participants had an opportunity to view the Inspiring Beauty  exhibition. As previously reported, the show includes many of the iconic fashions worn during the EBONY Fashion Fair and features designs by Bill Blass, Givenchy, B Michael, Yves Saint Laurent, Todd Oldham, Christian Dior, Valentino, Stephen Burrows and more.

Following the toast, participants crossed the street to the Woodruff Art Center’s Hill Auditorium where they watched Versailles ’73.  The film, which debuted in 2012, recounts the tale of a moment that changed the course of fashion history, shattered the status quo and ushered in a paradigm shift. On November 28, 1973 at the Chateau de Versailles, American fashion houses stormed France in an epic battle pitting the French haute couture establishment -Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin and Emmanuel Ungaro – against American designers Anne Klein, Bill Blass, Stephen Burrows, Oscar de la Renta and Halston.

Ramona with MichaelIn front of an audience of royalty, millionaire luminaries and icons including Andy Warhol, Princess Grace of Monaco, Christina Onassis and Josephine Baker, the Americans catapulted ready-to-wear to global stardom. Their secret weapon was fresh, innovative designs and the tour de force, a collective of stunning black models who sashayed down the runway and into the hearts of the high-profile audience.

The film was followed by a lively panel discussion featuring the Saunders, Cleveland, Burrows, Smaltz, Draper and was hosted by former model and journalist Gail O’Neill. During the Q&A, Smaltz talked candidly about working with EBONY Fashion Fair creator, Mrs. Eunice Johnson. Smaltz was the show’s commentator for seven years and often traveled with Mrs. Johnson to Europe to purchase many of the fashions. She also talked about the lack of diversity on the runways and claims that most of today’s fashion designers prefer models with “no personality.” Saunders (featured above with Michael Jackson) and Cleveland swapped stories about their Versailles ’73  experience and revealed that they were both working on autobiographies. Burrows chatted about wanting to be an art teacher before he became a designer and said that the core of fashion is all about “functionality and simplicity.”

13mir is a very strong PvP connect hero due to the current race composition (that has happened in response to the Frey meta) and actually pairs extremely well with
Frey and Alice. Even after Frey gets the boot,
13mir will still be strong in GA. Due to being a Beast though, he
can wear a Hardstone, which means you will
need another hero to be the mage tank.

The open carry thing really has me baffled.

Back when I was growing up, the idea of open carrying a gun, any gun, was deemed idiotic.
Why would you advertise. We consider Chardan’s action to issue its comments just hours after the
completion of the conference call to be an apparent attempt to support the
stock. Chardan’s analysts should examine what “has been in business relations with” really means
and how real a possible going private transaction is.
We just can’t see how they could have examined such
complete issues so quickly on the same day of the conference call.

Standing for “slow moving, projectile shooting, f’ed up melee”, this Big Daddy was
intended as a slow, ranged type that would center itself and fire a heavy projectile at enemies via a large

For example, divide your strategy’s allocation in half, dedicating the new half to a low volatility ETF. This will not only reduce your clients’ fees but will allow you to increase the volatility in the stock half of the portfolio, an important technique due to excess returns being more likely with higher volatility holdings..

its surroundings; usually, but not always, in the form of heat.
The term was coined by Marcellin Berthelot from the
Greek roots endo, derived from the word “endon” () meaning “within” and the root “therm”
( ) meaning “hot.” The intended sense is that of a reaction that depends on taking in heat if it is to proceed.
The opposite of an endothermic process is an exothermic
process, one that releases, “gives out” energy in the form of (usually, but not
always) heat. cheap wigs
