LARGO, Md. — Models strutted down the runway at Largo High School’s spring fashion show in colorful outfits in gold, pink, red, orange and shades of blue.

About 100 students attended the show in March.

The show was broken into nine scenes, each with a different theme. They included: Glitz ‘n’ Glamour, Diva Dolls, Student Success, Sophisticated Silhouette, Vintage Vixens, Extravagant Educators and the finale.

In Glitz ‘n’ Glamour, models showed off such accessories as glittery gold and silver rings, bracelets and watches, and Coach and Gucci purses.

Next was Diva Dolls. Models in urban punk-rock clothes strutted their stuff to the tune of Beyonce’s “Diva.” The outfits included all-black Goth, T-shirts with rocker signs and symbols, and sandblasted jeans.

“I enjoy modeling because it’s a way to express yourself through style and body language,” said Darryl Steele, a senior who modeled a black suit, silver dress shirt and black tie.

Students spent six weeks practicing for the show.

The sponsors were David’s Bridal, Boutique stores, Men’s Warehouse and personal designers Khris Creations and Renee Cabactnoh.

Radio station WKYS 93.9 and Largo senior Dexter Cobb were the hosts.
