On The Cover:

Inspired by the candy colored pastels that are trending for spring fashion, we turned to The Berry Queens to help us showcase the best of spring and summer fashion that Acadiana has to offer. The Berry Queens, known for their colorful wigs, candy toss parade and community service, joined us at Fusion Photography for the Candy Land inspired fashion shoot. On the cover is Berry Queen Andree Schlicher, wearing a stunning jumpsuit from Ricki’s. Her makeup is by Alice Faul at Stephanie’s Merle Norman.
