    The question wasn't who was at the New Yorkers for Children Fall Gala last night, but who wasn't? Tons of sparkly floor-length gowns and pearly white smiles lit up Cipriani 42nd Street in Manhattan last night. The event was held to support the city's children services charity that serves 15,000 foster care children.

    The tall, dark and handsome NBA Knicks star Carmelo Anthony was this year's honoree after Giving Back Fund named him one of the celebrities who "gives most back." With Nicholas Scoppetta as the Honorary Chair and Henry and Vanessa Cornell, Oscar de la Renta, Lise and Michael Evans, Kevin and Erika Liles, Ashley and Jeff McDermott, Shirin von Wulffen and Frederic Fekkai as the 2011 Fall Gala co-chairs it was an over-the-top celebrity filled night.

    But besides gathering for a charitable cause, the high society guests donned some of the most extravagant designer gowns and suits, making the red carpet the flashiest spot of the night. Among phootgraphed were tennis star Serena Williams, Selita Ebanks, Rachel Roy, Hilary Rhoda, Byrdie Bell, Dayssi Kanavos, Susan L. Burden, Katie Lee, Ivanka Trump, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Coralie Charriol Paul, Harley Viera Newton, Laura Remington Platt, Christian Siriano, Tracy Stern, Georgina Bloomberg, Alexandra Lebenthal, Elizabeth Kurpis, Zang Toi, Julie Macklowe, Melissa Magazine, Nancy O'donoghue, Paul Mcgloin, Franklin Cogliano, Ronald Richter, Rosemary Ponza, Ed Ponza, Bryan Mazza, Tinsley Mortimer, Be Inthavong, Nellie Partow, Caren Brooks, Stacey Lalljee, Billy Macklowe, Muffie Potter Aston, Jon Kurpis, Tatiana Platt, Campion Platt, David Ledy, Pia Ledy, Dorrit Moussaieff, Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, Allison Aston, Maggie Cordish, Amy McFarland, Sarah Brown, Zani Gugelmann, Susan Tabak, Laura Bennett, Vanessa von Bismark, Lydia Fenet, Kate Lundkvist, Alex Lundkvist, Dana Hagendorf, Martin Dessoffy, Donya Bommer, Karin Sadove, Steven Sadove, Lisa Evans, Marina Killery, Valentin Hernandez, Yaz Hernandez, Geoffrey Bradfield, Debbie Bancroft, Susan Shin, Daniel Benedict, Andrew Saffir, Christina Greeven Cuomo, Jean Shafiroff, Cameron Silver, Stacy London, Veronica Webb, Shafi Roepers, Carly Cushnie, Marisa Brown, BJ Blum, Alina Cho, John Demsey, Mary Alice Stevenson and Naeem Khan.
