It was black and white and fabulous all over when the American Cancer Society took over the big tent at The Victorian for its annual gala. The Black and White Gala brought out the big hearts and some big style for a worthy cause against a beautifully put together backdrop from Event Rental. Marcelle Fontenot, the event's honorary chair, was killing it in a draping dress with gold details. Nandi Lindscombe was fab in a black and white print dress as fearless as the lady herself. And Stephen Barker was rocking a signature bowtie made by who else - Mr. Barker.
