Kennedy Center: Doo Wa’s and Hoo-ha’s.

Wow, what an evening! Better than the Grammys, expect no dirty dancing. For the occasion, Lady M pulled out all the stops.

You’ve probably heard about the winners of the 32nd Kennedy Center Honors: Mel Brooks, Bruce Springsteen, Grace Bumbry (opera, people), Dave Brubeck and Robert De Niro. I can’t speak to the rest of the gang, but I have some insight into why Grace and Robert won – it’s mostly due to their sartorial tastes:

Robert De Niro in Raging Bull. The inspiration for many of Mo’s fashion accessories.

Grace Bumbry, like Lady M, has a very individual sense of style.

Big Guy had a lot of fun looking down on the little people.

Here is a shot of BO and his DooWa’s and here is a pic of MO without her hoo-ha’s:


But the night was magical, and peppered with huge celebrities.

It’s almost enough to make you forget about health care and global warming, isn’t it?
