When I got the invite for a Prissy Wilson shindig I knew style would abound. The reigning queen of Rio and her royal posse threw a party at The Madison with a “dressy casual” dress code. But, this wasn’t your average crowd and the looks didn’t disappoint starting with Queen Prissy herself.
The blond was equal parts edgy and chic in an ensemble that started with leather pants and ended with a fringed top and blazer. It was proof that pants can be the unexpected way to take a look to a sophisticated place. Crystall Coroy was effortless in a blue little dress and long necklace — just the right combo of cocktail with a laid back vibe.
Samuel Richard may be the master at mixing color when it comes to makeup, but the makeup artist was 50 shades of perfectly done grey with a sexy trim cut jacket and pants. Rio court member Nandi Linscombe also brought the leather trend home in an edgy way with her little dress with lace details and a sheer panel while Kiki Frayard proved a super simple little black slip dress can’t be beat.
If this is how Rio royalty does cocktail we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us come spring. Check out more pics of the party on IND's facebook page.

JUL 22 The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is "a lock" to win the Sun Belt Conference in football, Fox Sports opines in this post. There's a rundown of the other teams in the conference, but ULL is predicted to win the conference, thanks in large part to an "explosive" offense. Is it football season yet?
JUL 22 Columnist Stephanie Grace says Gov. Bobby Jindal may be meeting with state education officials (hey - you mean HIS education officials, don't you, Steph?) but it is clear he's not looking for a solution in the Common Core fracas. Bobby wants an issue he can take on the road, and this one seems to be it, she says.
JUL 22 This is a fascinating piece in the Picayune about the murder of a doctor in her St. Charles Avenue home 50 years ago. It's fascinating because of the mysteries and myths that have swirled around the incident for those decades, and because of the possible connection to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. There are a lot of interesting names in here, including Ochsner and Marcello, and as usual the comments below the story are nearly as entertaining as the story itself.
JUL 22 Here's a love letter from New York Daily News' Alex Palmer to Louisiana. In some ways it is the typical tourism article (with pronunciation guides and food definitions) but in another way it goes beyond that to list lesser-known spots to visit for food or tours.
