The Knights of Momus, Galveston’s oldest Mardi Gras Krewe, presented its royal court, King Frivolous CVI and his queen at the Knights of Momus Coronation Ball and reception at The Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston. Ball chair Craig Kovacevich and Mistresses of the Robes Caroline Barnes and Janet Wegner hosted a record 950 guests. The 30 duchesses were presented at the Coronation Ball and at The Fertitta Family’s annual San Luis Salute and they rode in the Knights of Momus Grand Night Parade. The duchesses’ gowns were designed by Houston fashion designer Miwa Sakashita and reflected the ball’s theme “Midnight in Paris.” Duchesses from the Memorial area included Savannah Lily Olsson, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Scott Edwin Olsson; Caroline Elizabeth Sophie Perillo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Andrew Perillo; Tyler Virginia Robinson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Frank Robinson; and Kellie Nicole Samson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Thomas Samson. Duchesses from the River Oaks and Tanglewood neighborhoods included Hailey Grace Herrold, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ray Herrold; Catherine Cheney Jackson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William James Jackson; Juliet Grace Sweeney, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Michael Sandlin Sweeney; Channing Dale Allshouse, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Bucky Allshouse; Sarah Grace Elliott, daughter of Mr. W. Lawrence Elliott and Ms. Andrea L. Elliott. Duchesses from West University included Lucy Maas Frankfort, daughter of Mr. Todd Maas Frankfort and Mrs. Andria Milstein Frankfort; Alexis Marie Gust, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Lee Gust; and Cara Liann Wolff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Wolff. Pictured are 2022 duchesses from the Houston area.
