Princess Grace Gala As Elegant As Its Namesake

by Chiara Atik · October 22, 2009

Cipriani 42nd Street was completely decked out last night for a party fit for a king (or at least a Sovereign Prince of the most famous European Principality). At the 26th Annual Princess Grace Awards Gala, Prince Albert II (Uncle to Charlotte and Andrea Casiraghi), along with his beautiful Australian Olympic swimmer girlfriend, honored the emerging writers, dancers, and filmmakers who received the coveted 2009 awards. Attendees, including Tommy Hilfiger, Martha Plimpton, Mariska Hargitay, Buzz Aldrin, Simon Van Kempen and Alex McCord were all dressed to the nines in some of the most elegant gowns and tuxes we've seen all season.
