Friday Fabü

This swanky, May 26 shindig at Hotel Parq Central (806 Central SE, 505.242.0040) promises to be one of the year’s top chichi events. Bon Fete Fashion for Paws, a silent auction and fashion show benefiting Animal Humane Association of New Mexico, is the brainchild of makeup artist Ashlynne Padilla and boutique owner Monica Vigil, in conjunction with Kappa Kappa Gamma. The night begins at 6p with a silent auction featuring art, pet products, styling services, makeovers, boutique gift certificates and more. Bliss! Next, it’s a Moni V’s fashion show, with makeup by Padilla and hair by Inspire salon. Designers include Splendid, Cynthia Vincent and Halston.

Tickets are available at Moni V’s (112 Amherst SE, 505.255.0148); $25 for general admission and $50 for VIP seating and swag bag. Fifty percent of ticket sales and 100 percent of silent auction funds, benefit Animal Humane Association of New Mexico.

“Do be a slave to fashionable cocktails, because the hotel is donating money for all signature cocktails purchased,” event coordinator Andre Jackson said in a recent interview.

The night’s emcee: yours truly, dahling, along with that posh rescue poochette herself, Mary Poppins. What will she wear? I’m sworn to secrecy. Please join us for this glam-tastic event for a marvelous cause. (Info: , 505.569.0157.)
