MrB and I went to the annual awards dinner for the Citizens Committee for New York City last night. Our dear friend Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel received a lifetime achievement award for her contributions to the arts. Former New York governor Mario Cuomo introduced Barbaralee, but MrB wouldn’t let me take a picture of him. MrB wouldn’t let me take a picture of Matthew Broderick either. Broderick was there to introduce Broadway theater producer Rocco Landesman, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. Ferris Bueller‘s night out!
I finally wore the Zac Posen gown I got at Trudie Styler’s (aka Mrs. Sting’s) sale in London in 2008.
Superstylist Julie Matos did my hair in curls. Our friend Robert said it made me look like a 1920s Shanghai lady. I also wore the Stuart Weitzman shoes I got in November and my own jewelry, of course.
Damn, look at the Alexander McQueen jacket I passed up at Trudie’s sale because I was trying to be “good.” I have non-buyer’s regret far more often than I have buyer’s regret.
UPDATED TO ADD: See Bill Cunningham’s photos from the event here.
UPDATED AGAIN TO ADD: Good thing I have this blog to serve as my memory. I didn’t remember that I’d found a twin to this dress last year. Check it out here.
