Friday's Fabulous Flicks

Pamela Joyner & White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers
Miss USA 2008 Crystle Stewart & designer Zang Toi

Earlier this week, The School of American Ballet held the Winter Ball in celebration of their 75th Anniversary. More than 400 patrons attended the beautiful black tie affair which raked in over $800,000.

Van Cleef & Arpels served up the extra special glamour by providing Pamela Joyner with jewels and creating the ‘Award of Excellence’ named after Claude Arpels (whose friendship with SAB co-founder George Balanchine inspired the ballet “Jewels” in 1967). This first award was presented to George Balanchine posthumously and was accepted by SAB Artistic Director Peter Martins.

Many of our favorite Super Socialites were in attendance including Pamela Joyner (who was the event’s co-chair), White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, and Susan Fales-Hill. Miss USA 2008 Crystle Stewart was also at the event.

Both Crystle Stewart and Pamela Joyner wore designs by the fabulous Zang Toi.

Thanks Lauren for the wonderful flicks and details!

Good people have a terrific weekend!

I’m in Seattle attending a conference and will chat with you when I return!
