Mileybus is celebrating her 15th birthday, which in Latina cultural is the transition from girl to woman. The young lady wears a fancy dress — in this case Ana, who is a skilled seamstress, made this gorgeous gown. Miley is wearing make-up. Her escorts have left aside their jeans and sneakers and ball caps and are dressed to the nines.
I wanted Miley’s party to be special, and so helped a bit financially. I knew Ana would create something wonderful if she could buy the fabric she needed. I think the dress is breathtaking, and Miley wears it so beautifully.
I wish I could have been there.
