Bold names were out in full affect last night in New York City for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala at the Lincoln Center in New York City. And this gala had a very fashionable aspect to it, the evening honored legendary designer Valentino Garavani.
Valentino designed all the costumes for the one-time-only performance, pairing ballet and fashion just for the Gala
“Ballet speaks to me because of the romance I see in it,” Valentino said in night’s program. “I realize the dancers do so much to be perfect, and in high fashion I always wanted perfection.”
And while some of the celebrities in attendance did hit “perfection” with their outfits, others did not. Check out the best and worst dressed right here!
