The 2013 Stardust Ball went off with a bang thanks to hosts Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill. Here are some of our favorite moments from the costume competition, lip sync performances, and more. Huge thanks to Bobbi Jordan for taking these pics and compiling the slideshow! We have received word that the portrait photos are available for viewing at Harry Race Photo.
