Sometimes, an abundance of rhinestones still isn't enough. See over-the-top fashion with a Western flair at "No Glitz, No Glory," a new exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. The museum has pulled from its collection an assortment of eye-popping Nudie suits, 40-pound dresses and rhinestone-studded chaps that show off the best of Western bling. You'll see the sort of fashion that could have been worn without irony only in the West, including rodeo gear, decorative boots and bejeweled hats, and outlandish Order of the Alamo dresses.
