Fly Girls

It's common knowledge that when women dress up for a night on the town usually they're aiming to impress and out-dress fellow females -- instead of looking to wow gents. Maybe that's because dudes don't pick up on fancy duds. Or perhaps it stems from an evolutionary tendency to compete for attention. Either way, those attending Nostra Style House's Rare Bird fashion show will witness the phenomenon firsthand.

Designer Tiffe Fermaint will be on the prowl, camera in hand, hunting for the best-dressed women attending the show. After the event, pics will be posted on Facebook and fashionistas will vote for their faves. The lady deemed most stylish will win a dress from Keepsake.

When they aren't mugging for the camera, attendees will take in a performance from modern troupe Dulce Dance Company, followed by a runway show featuring designs from Arte Puro, Gentle Fawn, and more. Flamenco Por Vida's Angelina Ramierez will close the show.
