Barrett Jackson Opening Night Gala

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Barrett Jackson Opening Night Gala. For those of you unfamiliar with Barrett Jackson, it’s the World’s Greatest Car Collection Auction, and each January it comes to Scottsdale for a week long auction and car show. To kick of the week’s festivities, Barrett Jackson throws an Opening Night Gala for guests to enjoy food, cars, fun, and fashion. This year’s gala included a fashion show put on by Phoenix Fashion Week and a live performance by Brett Michaels.

Male models wearing Elevee and female models wearing Michelle Hebert.

Two of my favorite runway looks, both by Marciano.

    Did you get to talk to Arie? He's an amazing guy! I work for an IndyCar team, and he has stopped in sometimes. Our drivers have won more Indy 500s than he has though 😉

    So jealous that you went to this! Looked like so much fun, and you looked gorgeous!
