Last night the School of American Ballet hosted its annual Winter Ball fundraising gala at the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center, sponsored by French luxury house Van Cleef & Arpels. During cocktail hour, we toasted the most delicious champagne rosé (they must have known Champagne Beauty would be there!) from Terlato Wines, and we were treated to an authentic Russian-themed ballet performance.
The Young Patrons Committee continued the Russian homage with, oh just your average black tie vodka shots from Belvedere! Notable chairmen of the event included Julia Koch, Pamela Joyner, Chelsea Clinton and my beautiful friends Ann-Marie MacFarlane and Brie Bythewood.
Check out the glam and sophistication all in the name of a great cause:
I wore an up-do coif, twisted forward from a french roll in the back and swept to the side. I kept my eye make-up simple and popped the look with a brick red lip from MAC. I was so tan from my vacation in Jamaica that I couldn’t use my normal foundation, so instead I opted for a light sweep of Bare Minerals Warmth powder, a perfect bronzer-setting powder combination.

Ann-Marie looked Oscar-worthy with long soft curls swept to the side, and completed the look with a gold and blue double faced silk-wool gown from B Michael America Couture’s Fall 2012 collection. She maintains her glow with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisutrizer in Walnut, Josie Maran Argan Oil Lip Balm (both great brands for sensitive skin!) and NARS Blush in Torrid.

Brie sparkled in a silver embroidered gown with a long bell-shaped train by b michael, and completed her elegant look with diamond chandelier earrings. Brie believes “the best beauty accessories are a bright smile and beautiful lashes,” and can’t live without Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara in Black and of course Crest White strips. Brie’s mother (my beautiful namesake), Alicia Bythewood, wore a soft blue gown by Carolina Herrera.

Adrienne Rudkin of Hermès literally sparkled across the room! At first glance I liked her classic wavy hair worn to the side…
…then at second glance I LOVED the intricate detail at the nape of her neck with a horizontally twisted chignon
