fashion for a cause 2013 runway | kansas city, missouri

With all the glitz and glamour that goes with Fashion for a Cause — the backstage scene, the patrons party, the dress hunt — it’s easy to forget that, hey, we’re here for a fabulous fashion show to benefit women’s health services and oncology care at Truman Medical Center!

This was my second year to attend the event (see coverage from last year’s show, hosted by Giuliana Rancic).

Host Carson Kressley of Queer Eye for the Straigh Guy fame kept the crowd of Kansas City philanthropists laughing and smiling with his cute jokes, funny tips (“more men’s swimwear next year!”) and overall charming personality.

{Carson Kressley is no stranger to Kansas City. He attends the American Royal Barbecue every year and spent the whole weekend in Kansas City after Fashion for a Cause.}

You can find more pictures of the styles shows from local Kansas City shops Alaskan Fur Company, Feng, Clique Boutique, Helen Jon, Hudson & Jane, Miriam Garvey, jH, Nolte’s, N Valentino and Sitzmark Sports on the kimberlyloc.com Facebook page as well as the Fashion for a Cause Facebook page.

For now, though, I leave you with my favorite four styles of the night.

  • The white crochet/lace dress and hat scream summer to me — can’t wait to wear that outfit.
  • I am adoring the crisp men’s look with bright yellow pants, cuffed at the ankle, and cool shoes. More men need to dress like that!
  • The black evening gown is sexy yet sophisticated — I don’t know where I’d wear it, but I want it!
  • And finally, the yellow/green and black dress with the neck ruffle stole my heart. That’s my overall No. 1 pick of the night!

What are your favorite looks from Fashion for a Cause 2013? And even more important — are you planning on coming to Fashion for a Cause 2014 after seeing all this fabulousness?!
