That '70s Show

| May 22, 2012 | Parties

THE SIZZLE Is that “Stayin’ Alive” we hear, perhaps some “Super Freak”? It was definitely a disco inferno at the Young Friends of the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas’ ninth annual fundraiser, themed “Studio 54.” Shining in the glare of the disco balls strung throughout The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas’ ballroom, co-chairs Bianca Colgin and Amy McEvoy welcomed the crush of more than 750 gleaming guests, while DJ Lucy Wrubel hovered above the crucial dance floor like a disco angel ready to open the floodgates on her funky-town beats. Todd Fiscus pulled out all the stops, transforming the Ritz from regal and refined to sparkling and slightly moody ala the legendary 54th Street studio. THE STATEMENTS Spotted: Glitter and sequins galore, chunky platforms, print-fabulous headbands and all measures of sheen-tastic polyester… oh, and a certain disco-ball hat. But it was Colgin and McEvoy who really stole this show with their custom matching gold lamé exits designed by Mari Hidalgo with bling from Eiseman Jewels. THE SWAG Some partygoers went home with more than sore dancing soles and “Y.M.C.A.” stuck in their heads. Auction items the likes of a ride on a vintage Delfin MiG fighter jet, a flying trapeze lesson, a one- week stay in Aspen and Dirk Nowitzki’s shoes had bids pinging back and forth.
