Miss Fashionetta Cotillion celebrates work of debutantes and their escorts
Sunday, November 21, 2010
The Carnegie Room at the Capitol Plaza Hotel buzzed with excitement Saturday night, as young women in flowing white dresses and men in tuxedos with white gloves and shining black shoes grouped together, taking photos with family and friends, and rehearsing their moves for a dance one final time.
The elegantly dressed high school and college students were moments away from being recognized as debutantes at the 2010 Miss Fashionetta Cotillion, hosted by the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority at Lincoln University. The group has hosted the cotillion every two years since 1978.
