Last night's Winter Ball at the Lincoln Center Plaza was the 75th Anniversary of The School of American Ballet. More importantly, it established the relevancy of the Upper East Side socialite. When King and Queen Serena and Dan, aka Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, arrive, you know you're in for a true UES night of fun. The School of the American Ballet 75th Anniversary Winter Ball star-studded guest list also included Sarah Jessica Parker, Chelsea Clinton, Miss USA Crystle Stewart, designer Zang Toi, and a variety of New York's most charitable, of course.
More story and photos from this event below...The annual black tie event, chaired this year by Effie and Robert Fribourg, Pamela J. Joyner, Coco Kopelman, and Liz Peek. While March may seem a little late for a Winter Ball, we're sure the female guests in attendance were enjoying the warmer than winter weather: Blake Lively chose a plunging neckline by Ralph Lauren, and many women, including Sarah Jessica Parker who was in attendance as well, decided to go bare legged. Van Cleef Arpels sponsored.
