Lonnie at Night of a Thousand Gowns

Empress Lonnie amazed in New York!

What a wonderful trip to New York’s Night of a Thousand Gowns. I was honored to be able to represent the Emerald Kingdom of Palm Springs and Riverside County, Czar Drue and Czarina Liz Loren, as well as the Imperial Court of Los Angeles/Hollywood at Night of a Thousand Gowns this month. So many celebrities and beautiful gowns and costumes, and a true night to remember. My sister, Queen Mother Nicole was present and looked radiant. Emperor Tony and Empress Twinkle were amazing host, and looked very regal and elegant as they stepped down.

Everybody who was anybody was present. I travelled to New York with Empress Wendy Pinkhouse, who stepped down there last year, and she showed me the ropes of New York, from getting from the Airport to the Hotel, to getting around town. Although it was raining when I arrived at 5:00 AM on Friday, the rain quickly subsided and it was off to the Hotel to rest for the first nights adventure, the Out of Town Show.

The town was bright and full of lights, and Time’s Square was amazing. The food, the smells and the great hospitality of the New York Court was evident in every event. The Hospitality Suite was amazing, with live piano music and singer, and food, food, food…

Including a platter about a foot tall loaded with of all things BACON. (Liz would have fainted…LOL)

What fun we had, and I want to take a moment to thank Czarina Liz Loren for sending me in her place as she travelled to Russia for business this year and was unable to attend.

I recommend this ball to anyone who has or has not attended.

New York knows how to produce a major event and make it fun, fast moving and interesting. So many great people there, and it was good to see so many old friends and make some new ones.

Life is short, and every experience like this makes it just that more amazing!
