Viva Rockabilly Weekend in Las Vegas

From today's Las Vegas Sun: "The annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend kicked off at the Orleans on Thursday with no shortage of sharp ensembles in sight.

Fans of the rockabilly lifestyle came from as far as Australia and Sweden to attend the weekend-long event featuring car shows, music, pool parties, a little bit of hula and a lot of burlesque.

As Thursday evening's events wound down after midnight, attendees showed no signs of slowing down as they hit the casino floor; even the Orleans' colorfully lit, decadent decor seemed demure in comparison with the crowd's bold head-to-toe vintage looks.

Glittering lips, luscious curls and corseted waists reigned among the ladies; the fellas tended toward slicked-back 'dos, abundant tattoos and a twinkle in their eyes. But the best part was that no two looks were quite alike. Here's a look at some of Thursday night's most distinct styles. Viva indeed."

Now, some of us might be wondering when they are going to put on their outfits - we think people look like that all the time.

Speaking of clothes in Las Vegas, the country music folks are miffed at Ashton Kucher (I hate him, think he's a no-talent git) because when he was a presenter at the Country Music Awards he wore a silly outfit and had a back-up group on stage that made fun of people who listen to country music.

We see a lot of outlandish outfits in Las Vegas all the time, but this was a convention of them.

I liked that award show except for the TV stars who have nothing to do with country music and are just there to plug a show. Like Ashton Kucher.

Yes, it seemed like there were a lot of interlopers who we all know would never be caught dead listening to country music. For example, KISS showed up on the red carpet. One of them made some statement about how all music comes from the same place - the heart - (and by the way) they have a new record coming out.

It's practice for Halloween. Or the other way around.
