E ach year, Una Notte in Italia breaks all the rules of the tra- ditional catwalk presentation — and that's just the way the merry throng that packs the sellout event likes it.

They swaggered across the Royal Sonesta ballroom runway with abandon — some dancing, some blowing kisses — all in the name of raising funds for the Houston Area Women's Center. Who wouldn't be excited to cheer for MLB Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell, former Houston Rocket Mario Elie, or Houston Texan Whitney Mercilus? The revelry was led by chairs Sippi Khurana and Kendra Smith and emceed by KPRC Channel 2 cohorts Dominique Sachse and Andy Cerota.
