Day two of Los Angeles' 42nd annual LGBT pride weekend kicked off with a colorful parade down Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, Calif.

Hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets to watch the parade, which ran from Crescent Heights Boulevard to Robertson Boulevard. The street celebration was a dazzle of sequins, rainbow colors, fur and foam as floats, marching bands, dance troupes and cheerleading teams marched down the road.

Actress Molly Ringwald was the parade grand marshal, but she wasn't the only LGBT icon in the crowd. Nene Leakes and Lisa Vanderpump of Bravo's "Real Housewives" reality shows, as well as Reza Farahan of "Shahs of Sunset" rolled down Santa Monica in convertibles (or in Vanderpump's case, a pink fluffy float).

Some of the most memorable parts of the parade: Wells Fargo's stagecoach, drawn by live horses -- followed shortly by a pair of women dressed as horses (mouth bits and all), pulling their whip-ready masters in rickshaws. A plexiglass truck carrying a bubble party shocked the crowd by squirting bursts of foam into the air (and onto people). Gorgeous costumes ran the gamut from drag queen to superhero to fantasy to not much of anything at all. Much like yesterday's Pride fest, skin reigned supreme.
