On my busy weekend of February 7th, one of the events I visited was the High Noon Western Americana Event, an Antique Show and Auction featuring high quality Western and Native American art and collectables. (I posted a picture of a beautiful saddle from there on February 12th.) While I was there, I met this lovely young woman dressed appropriately in this glamorous western attire. I was told that her outfit was created by Nudie Cohn, a Ukrainian-American tailor who became famous for his rhinestone encrusted suits worn by celebrities such as Roy Rogers, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and even Elvis Presley and John Lennon. You can read more about Nudie's interesting life here.
This young lady was part of a group known as the Golden West Cowgirls who participate in many events throughout the southwest.
