The Atlanta Pride Committee today announced details for its upcoming Official Kickoff Party to be held at the Georgia Aquarium. The event, now in its 5th year, will be held Friday, Oct. 11, from 7-11:30 p.m. It will feature headliner DJ Vicki Powell spinning in the Atrium and DJ Chris Griswold in the Oceans Ballroom.
“Atlanta Pride is delighted to return to Georgia Aquarium for our fifth annual Official Kick-off Party,” APC Executive Director Buck Cooke said in a prepared statement. “As always, we are excited to see what our partners at Georgia Aquarium come up with in terms of ambiance and decoration for one of the most marvelous cocktail parties in Atlanta.”
Tickets for the event are $25 for general admission, $30 at the door and $80 for lounge tickets. Last year’s event sold out. Tickets are available here.
Scale & proportion
Says Martinez: “Scale and proportion are big this fall. (Pardon the pun!) Achieve this through an oversized sweater or a large chunky scarf.”
All things leather are in: coats, vests, skirts, pants and accents of all kinds. (No word on harnesses, though!)
Fur or Faux
Fur, especially used as trim, will take you into winter. Wear faux fur to avoid your militant PETA neighbors!
Think burgundy, wine, orange, blue and deep emerald.
“If you’re feeling adventurous and fashion forward,” Martinez says, “try a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana brocade trimmed cape. If that’s way too fashion fast lane for you, Zenga designed very handsome, very tailored ones.”

Joe Stuckey is a stylist to the stars — he’s worked with Toni Braxton, Fantasia Barrino, several of the Real Housewives of Atlanta as well as Tom Berenger and Lance Gross. His stylings have been featured in magazines including Esquire, Grape, Essence Magazine, 944 and Jezebel.
Being around such celebrities and helping ensure their makeup, wardrobe and hair are just perfect for a photo shoot is exciting, to be certain. But “at the end of the day, people are people, whether famous or not, rich or not,” says Stuckey, 36, of Dunwoody.
In 2000 he started his own business before taking off for five years and then revitalizing it two years ago. He’s offered up some of the keys to his success as well as some of his tips on how to be fashionable even in Atlanta’s overbearing heat.
