Of a Kind for GofG: What to Wear to Tonight's NYC Ballet Spring Gala

by Erica Cerulo · May 11, 2011

At an event as schmance as this one, you have to worry about somebody else showing up in the same show-stopping dress as you. Avoid such an occurrence by wearing designers on the verge (for accessories too). Erica Cerulo of limited-editions site Of a Kind has put together some great outfit ideas to get you started!

1. The muted, greige color keeps this dress from being too sweet. Learn Bibhu Mohapatra's name now: You'll hear it on E! red-carpet coverage sometime very soon.

2. Did you notice how every other Met Gala attendee was wearing Nicholas Kirkwood heels? That's because the 30-year-old Brit is way hot right this very minute- and he makes very hot shoes.

3. Add just enough toughness with this necklace from the jewelry-phenom sisters behind Dannijo. The clunky, oxidized silver chain makes Swarovski crystals look as downtown as they ever have.

4. You need something to keep you shoulders warm, but forget the barely there scarf or shrunken cardigan. This bright-white tuxedo jacket from Haute Hippie has some edge-and keeps everything from being too matchy-matchy.
