A fairyland of dazzling beauty and multicolors that was the 14th annual Las Floristas Headdress Ball held at the Biltmore Bowl on May 2, 1952. The theme was "Out of This World"--and the sparkling parade of head pieces lived up to the very heart of its theme. Above, before the admiring audience, Lillian Molieri is seen with her creation, "The Princess of Scheherazade," which won the "most exotic" award.
