Taking its cue from a Hollywood success story, the seventh annual LCA HoustonInternational Mother’s Day Soirée adopted a “Crazy Rich and Fabulous” theme in its celebration of the city’s diversity and various cultures. The altruistic nod to the wildly successful Crazy Rich Asians film took place in the sophisticated environs of Asia Society Texas Center where several hundred men, women and children gathered to embrace the city’s multi-cultural fabric.
Even though it was post-Mother’s Day, the dinner evening saluted a dozen remarkable moms, many of whom walked the runway with their children, all in formal attire. Taking bows were Sadaf Aslam, Liza Bailey, Tammy Gee Su, Courtney Zubowski Hass, Samantha Holsomback, Sheekha Sethi Khan, Fadila Kibsgaard, Peta Gay Ledbetter, KPRC Channel 2’s Sofia Ojeda, Escarle Silvia, Fox 26’s Melissa Wilson and the 2019 “Showstopper,” Hallie Vanderhider.
The fashionable divas presented an interesting mix not only for the range of heritage and beautiful gowns but also in their personal presentations which ranged from lady-like elegance to beauty queen pizzazz to hottie momma gyrations. All in good fun.
Joining the ladies in the spotlight were the evening’s emcees, Dr. Sippi Khurana and KPRC Channel 2 meteorologist Justin Stapleton, gala chairs Toni Tate and KHOU Channel 11’s Rekha Muddaraj and International Mother’s Day Soirée host and founder Ruchi Mukherjee.
In the spirit of the evening, guests supped on an Eastern-inspired cuisine from Chef Claudia Ginn‘s Gourmet.
