Pics: Our Girls – a book launch, a parade and a tap show.

Last week saw the launch of Madeleine Hamilton’s fabulous new bookOur Girls, Aussie Pin-ups of the ’40s and ’50s.

It was a wonderful night: Wes Snelling MCed, Caroline and Kay from the Tap-Pets tap-danced in purple sequins and Circa was there too, with a mini ’50s fashion parade and beauty pageant with glamourous modern day pin-ups Candice DeVille, Nici Blue Eyes and Becky Argent.

Here are some pics of the show – hope you enjoy. As always, click on the image to see in full, click again to see in full size. That’s author Madeleine with the microphone.

My fav outfit of the night: Nici resplendant in red satin and lace party dress – available now in Circa for a happy new owner. Here worn with a matching ’50s style petticoat.
