The Preservation Society of Newport County partnered up last month with nationally known designer Angela Moore to host Moore's annual champagne brunch fashion show at Rosecliff. Attended by more than 180 stylish ladies, the event featured an array of “Seaside Sensations” fashions. Proceeds benefited the Preservation Society's mission to protect, preserve and present its exceptional collection of house museums and landscapes.

"The Rhode Show" (FOX) filmed live on site at Rosecliff throughout the morning, with segments that included a behind-the-scenes look at the society’s “Splendor at Sea” current exhibition.

More than 30 models, including three former Miss Rhode Islands as well as a special appearance by 2016 Miss Rhode Island Outstanding Teen Kate DePetro, and celebrity model Kent Russell, the Garden Guru, walked the runway wearing more than 100 different looks of nautical, beach, resort and cocktail themed outfits representing Newport in summer.
