Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week's flick features one of our favorites (Pamela Joyner) attending the Fall 2011 Gala of the New York Ballet.This year's event was extra special as it featured the "World Premiere" of Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom - his first composition written for dance.

Of course, many members of the glitterati were in attendance but Ms. Joyner was clearly the "belle of the ball."

Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week's flick feature Kevin and Erika Liles attending the New Yorkers for Children 2011 Fall Gala. The event raised more than $1.7 million to benefit the city's youth in foster care in the city. Even more incredible - $435,000 was raised at the live auction.

As Grandmama used to say, the Liles are "as clean as the Board of Health!" They look super sharp!
Check out Mr. Liles' philanthropy webpage.

Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week's flick features one of our favorites, Thelma Golden (left) with Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn attending the grand opening of a new Tory Burch store in New York recently. I understand the event was quite the shindig with all sorts of celebrity types swirling around.

As usual, Ms. Thelma gives us her trademark creative and stylish flair. Gotta love her for it!
