The Native American Clothing Contest (NACC) is always one of the highlights of Santa Fe Indian Market. Occuring on the Sunday of the weekend (August 18 in 2013), it's a pageant of finery and style that is unrivaled in Indian country. According to Indian Market's organizers, the NACC is the most-photographed event of the weekend. Models of all ages strut their stuff bedecked in feathers, fringes, beads and turquoise -- and no one is ever surprised when the youngsters steal the show. In 2012, the celebrity judges included Twilight actor Chaske Spencer and Indian Market's best-of-show champ Jamie Okuma; the previous year, designer Tom Ford cast a watchful eye. Here are some pictures of photogenic little ones from the 2012 NACC.
