Tamar Mendelssohn and Lyndsey Zorich have amassed a stylish coterie of pinup girls for a 13-month charitable calendar. The result, titled a Couture Cause, benefits both the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art and Houston’s Youth Hope Association. Each month highlights like-minded ladies who are involved, successful and stylish, including the Blaffer’s Alecia Harris, Myth & Symbol sister act Chau and Trang Nguyen, and Saint Cloud’s Cecilia Marquez. Photographer Rhonda Hunter shot the gaggle of gals at landmark locales, including the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and River Oaks Theatre, in designer labels  from Tootsies and David Peck. Naturally, the launch of such a project demands celebration, which the collaborative duo has slated for Wednesday, October 9, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at Tootsies, with ’20s jazz, spirits and light bites, as well as a trunk show from über-chic jewelry designer Ranjana Khan.
