Today I bring you some images from an extraordinary event I was part of last week. It was a fundraiser for The United Way held at Mar A Lago in Palm Beach Florida. The event featured famed Puerto Rican designer Carlos Alberto (gown designer for Miss USA and Miss Universe) and jewelry designer George Wittles, represented by La Casa Hermosa in Palm Beach, and sponsored by Seacoast National Bank. Event decor was by Jose Graterol Designs, the event was produced by Lauren Malis from Without A Hitch Events. Photography by Alain Martinez Photography.
Here are some of my favorite images.

This dress was something else. Check out how sexy, sensual and elegant this dress is

This beautiful model below was the winner of a contest in Puerto Rico to represent Carlos Alberto’s Musa (not sure what that means but I took some beautiful shots of her during prep time)
