INDstyle 2014 brings down house

It was a night to remember at AcA when Lafayette's fearless dressers took to the runway during IND's third INDstyle Awards and Fashion Show.

{igallery id=8593|cid=113|pid=2|type=category|children=0|addlinks=0|tags=|limit=0}Honoree Victoria Toups (as we knew she would) brought her adorable and edgy vibe to the event with a little leather crop top and printed skirt with a killer clutch. Lainey and Rye Tuten turned the runway into a dance floor with some moves that left the crowd cheering. Lainey was her ever eclectic self in a pretty red high-low dress with an awesome gold necklace and Rye was a total gentleman in his signature bow tie. Rozalyn Galyean mixed two colors of pink for a look that stayed edgy thanks to layering, a funky cool hair do and pieces from her own line of jewelry - Second Line Jewels. Mary Ann Mirian was all the rage in a soft little flapper-inspired dress that combined vintage and modern.

The men at the helm of Simien & Miniex - Ricky Miniex and Clyde Simien -were super suave while Bill Bacque brought his signature flair and rep Stephen Ortego rolled out with campaign sign in hand proving politics and style can definitely mesh. Mike Larson looked every bit the part of a 70s icon with his cool blue jacket and retro hair.
