With entertainer LeToya Luckett‘s penchant for Western wear and Pinto Ranch’s positioning at the intersection of Western wear and luxury, it was a congenial collaboration that found the two celebrating RodeoHouston with a clutch of music and suede and fringe aficionados in the Post Oak Boulevard boutique.

For two decades the high-end Western wear shop has been dressing local well-heeled cowboys and cowgirls as well as stars from the music and entertainment sectors. Think recent Houston-area resident Drake, among others.

“Because many customers may not be familiar with our space, there can be doubts on the authenticity of our product,” Pinto Ranch president Enrique Nehme says. “LeToya’s relationship with Pinto Ranch enhances our credibility with all Western enthusiasts.”

LeToya Luckett also brings 3.3 million followers on Instagram to the table, many who love her Western outfits.

“Business is booming thanks to people who want a Western twist to their outfits,”Nehme adds.

On this evening, Pinto Ranch has invited Luckett and more than 120 friends and 50 of her closest social media followers to celebrate that intersection of Western wear and luxury. After all, as a member of Destiny’s Child and a music personality in her own right, Luckett brings a valuable cachet to the realm.

“Ever since Go Western day at school, it was probably my favorite time of year because it was really about the Houston culture and I had dreams and aspirations of being a cowgirl one day,” Luckett tells PaperCity.

So with her former singing partner Beyoncé’s releasing “Texas Hold’Em,” we had to ask Layota Luckett about it.

“I know that with Beyoncé being a Houstonian, she knows about the Western culture,” Luckett says. “She represents her state of Texas very, very well. So it’s no surprise. She doesn’t like to put herself in a box. She’s been that way. And it’s (the song) catching. It’s definitely catching on. You can’t find a reel or a TikTok without it.”

Any Western songs in your future?

“Oh, I’m going to leave that to her. I’ll just shop for my Western wear,” Luckett says.

The 43-year-old R&B singer and actress is accompanied by her two youngsters Gigi and Ty, both in their cutest rodeo-ready outfits. We can’t be certain if she was with her new beau on this evening. He is pretty much under the radar.

But Luckett does allow: “He’s about to become a Houstonian. This is his first rodeo. He’s excited. He loves it. And all his friends and family are coming from Virginia to see Bun B.”

Next up on Luckett’s calendar is performing (most recently at The Warehouse) stints and hosting awards shows including the recent Urban One Honors.
