    Models painted by Mario Ink strut the runway at Rednofive's Rose Party.

    The champagne and roses of Valentine's Day don't have to end on Feb. 14. Nightclub Rednofive (440 N. Halsted) hosts the third annual Rose Party runway show Saturday, Feb. 21 to benefit the Breast Cancer Network of Strength Foundation. This is not your typical runway show of models and high fashion; this is a blend of fashion and entertainment showcasing the artistic collaboration of Glam Live and Mario Ink body painting.

    Hand painted models draped in flowers strut their stuff down the rose petal covered runway at midnight (doors open at 10 p.m.) while guests indulge in Moet champagne cocktail specials throughout the evening. Enjoy a glimpse of a live photo shoot of the models both before and after the show, by local photographer Alex Goykman.  The evening's festivities are hosted by Ben Mollin, a past finalist on BRAVO's Shear Genius.  Guests can show their support of fighting breast cancer by placing bids in a silent auction or giving a $10 suggested donation at the door.
