64th Annual Beaux Arts Ball
More than 200 costumed and black-tie guests celebrated late into the night, to raise funds for the 64th annual Beaux Arts Ball — this year, carrying a “Viva Las Vegas” theme.
Guests were immediately transported to Vegas as they walked down a red carpet that lead to a white wedding chapel. Revelers donned head turning costumes including Elvis jumpsuits, exotic Cirque Du Soleil attire, and Miss Universe contestant garb, creating the glamour of Las Vegas at every turn.
