Fashion designer Tadashi Shoji lives in Pasadena, so it's only natural that he's been tapped year after year as the official designer for the Tournament of Roses. For the upcoming festivities, he has designed one-shoulder gowns for the Rose Court with flounce detail and an embellished shoulder, according to a news release. The princesses will be in flame crepe and Rose Queen Vanessa Manjerrez in winter white, the release said. But no picture was included, pending the big reveal.
