Photo Of The Day: A Picturesque Princess Grace Awards Gala

by SARAH MANDATO · October 22, 2009

Yesterday evening, the Princess Grace Awards Gala filled the dramatic interior of Cipriani 42nd Street for its 26th year of honoring emerging artists in theater, dance and film (check out our full coverage, later today!). HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco spoke at the picturesque affair, a yearly tribute to his mother, Grace Kelly.

Adam Rapp, Mandy Patinkin and Martha Plimpton were just some of those seated at the impeccably set formal dining tables, tickets for which contribute to the more than $7 million worth of scholarships, fellowships and apprenticeships already funded by the philanthropic organization.
