When Rene Rosso was asked to sing in Paris, well, she said YES!
Of course, she had several requests. One, was that the Art Gowns would open for her with a fashion show. She had a special gown designed, just to announce the Art Gowns.
First out on the runway in “The Tulle Collection” was Gigi. In an asymmetric one sleeved stunner named “The Twirl”, she swept the stage with ease.
Holly totally glammed it up for the catwalk. She had wanted to ride out onto the stage on a motorcycle. It had to be a Harley, but they couldn’t find an acceptable one, on such short notice.
Rene Rosso, being a class act, sent out a big Thank you to the Beauty Team.
Taking care of the Wardrobe is the very capable Bijou. She wields a hot iron like no one else. Stay good and you won’t get your face pressed!
Margot is the hair stylist. She was once up for a Golden Globe award.
Geneviève, one of the best make-up artists, ever, to graduate from The Coop will be attending the Maquillage.
Of course there are unsung heroes. Rene Rosso insisted they come out to the stage for a bow, to hearty applause.

Then it was back to The Art Gowns fashion show, with the vivacious Dale leading the way in an Avant Garde specialty.
For Shey, inspiration was taken from her romantic period novels. During the flight to Paris, the Art Gowns read The Viking and The Courtesan. The girls are all still chattering away about it!
Marina is for real, even as she models this Faux Ballerina number.
It was time for Rene Rosso to perform a song. She adores the Parisienne audiences. In an Art Gown designed by Resa, and stage production design by Bridgette to look like a painting,
… she torched with “La Vie en Rose”. Her favourite version is by Melody Gardot.
Suddenly, on the last note of the song, the lights went BLACK!…..
… and Princess Blue Holly found herself in the night’s streets of Paris.Changing to her Crimes in a City’s Dark Corners outfit, she climbed to the roofs of Paris.
Hiding by a Gargoyle on on the southeast tower of Notre Dame Cathedral, Princess Blue Holly awaited the dawn and for her Tangle – Heart to guide her.
What was happening? How had Rene Rosso become Princess Blue Holly without conscious effort? Where were the Art Gowns? Where was her Tangle-Heart? Would the master of her inner dragons, Hyperion be able to help her?
