SHOT ON LOCATION AT JOIE DE VIVRE IN BREAUX BRIDGE

MAKEUP AND HAIR BY NICOLE DAVID, LACY QUINN AND JOHN THERIOT OF MON RÊVE

Fashion and music meet from La. to L.A.

Music and fashion are a long-term relationship we love. It was certainly the case when a talented group of Acadiana Grammy nominees headed to the red carpet in L.A. for the Recording Academy’s big night out.

Nominated in the Regional Roots category, the ladies from the Magnolia Sisters and Bonsoir Catin hit the Grammy carpet proving they know how to look seriously glam. A group of them gathered for a photo shoot post-awards to give us a glimpse of the pieces they rocked for the big awards — from vintage vibes and sexy shapes to flirty skirts and unique wares made for artists.

The generous Vanessa Williams opened her home above Joie de Vivre in Breaux Bridge with eats and sips of champagne while a group of talented artists of another ilk — hair stylists and makeup mavens from Mon Rêve — worked on hair and makeup.

Anya Burgess of both Bonsoir Catin and the Magnolia Sisters and owner of SOLA Violins in Lafayette was a breath of fresh flirty air in navy blue.

Jane Vidrine, who plays both guitar and fiddle and sings with Magnolia Sisters, was fiery in silky red pants she snagged at Cache to wear with a black sweater and bold necklace — revealing how pants can totally work on the red carpet.

Ann Savoy, the Magnolia Sister who plays accordion, guitar and fiddle and sings, put her own stamp on the red carpet with beautiful white birds she found and added to her dress and velvet jacket, finishing the look with bold white gloves.

Lisa Trahan of the Magnolia Sisters plays bass, percussion and the accordion and does vocals, certainly married that fine combo of vintage and modern in a sexy nude dress with black floral embellishments.
