Hollywood Glamour in Franklin

Hollywood Glamour in Franklin

By Polly Bibb

It is time to get your Hollywood outfit ready for the BRIDGES gala this weekend.  That’s right; Williamson County residents will be dressed to the nines in a Hollywood glamour look this weekend. 

Personally, I am debating between Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.  I think it would be so much fun to wear strands and strands of pearls with a classic updo… but Marilyn is a blondie…And, well if they have more fun…it would be fun to dress up like her for the night.  Hmmm…decisions, decisions.  

So, what are you going to wear?  Where do you go for the perfect Hollywood Glamour outfit?  Below is a list of local places filled with ball gowns and chicness to get you started on your search for that Hollywood look:
