This past Saturday, IndyCar drivers’ wives, fiancees, and girlfriends donned evening gowns and cocktail dresses and gathered on the Yard of Bricks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a promotional photo shoot. The backdrop: a brilliant sunset and streaking clouds behind the Pagoda.
Styled by Emmett’s The Studio (711 E. 54th St., 317-475-0777) in South Broad Ripple, the models included fashion maven Bronte Tagliani (wife of Alex Tagliani), former Miss Indiana Nicole Pollard (fiance of Martin Plowman), Kristin Paine (girlfriend of tough-luck Indy 500 competitor JR Hildebrand), Heather Carpenter (wife of Indianapolis native and 2014 Indy 500 pole sitter Ed Carpenter), and others.
IM got a behind-the-scenes look at the closed shoot. Check out the gallery for an exclusive sneak preview.
