Royal Court Will Make Runway Debut Thursday

It's as heavy as a phonebook but much, much prettier. 

And on Thursday, Pasadena teen Vanessa Manjarrez will feel the weight of historic royalty as she is crowned the 95th Rose Queen during the coronation ceremony at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Manjarrez and her six princesses, Kathryne Alice Benuska, 17, Maranatha High School, Tracy Italia Cresta, 17, La Salle High School, Victoria Sophia McGregor, 17, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Nicole Cherie Nelam17, Pasadena High School, Sonia Marie Shenoi, 17, San Marino High School and Madison Michelle Barili Teodo, 17, La Canada High School, will make their runway debut. 

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association chose the 2013 Royal Court from 900 Pasadena-area young women after several rounds of interviews. Selections were based on a range of qualities including public speaking ability, poise, academic achievement, community involvement and personality.

Check back later for video and photos from the ceremony.
