It was a “GALA NIGHT” at the Opera in Lincoln Center. The Fall Season opened with the opera EUGENE ONEGIN staring Netrebko and Kwiecien. The plaza was filled with the glitz and glamour of an opening night.
Some of the gowns were glamorous and a few were outrageous. Lots of fur showed up tonight……..and an abundance of ruffles.
Susan Lucci wore 30 yards of blue and gray tulle. Annie Leibovitz in her usual “butch” suit.

At Lincoln Center last night………the 2013 Fall Gala fundraiser for the New York City Ballet………was in the David Koch Hall. New York’s society and celebrities showed up for a glittery evening. Cocktails of the balcony and dinner after the performance.
The gowns were surprisingly atrocious. One shock after another walked down the red carpet.
NATALIE PORTMAN wore a surprisingly understated dress………fun material but a bit off-putting in baby blue and banana yellow. designed by Brittney Stephens
CLICK ON any gown to enlarge the fashion mistakes.
Too many layers of sheer……
And the little minks in baby blue.
Very navy satin……no flow.
Hide the bulges? NOT!
Tacky but fun.
I like her creativity and the funky handbag
Hide that crotch!
BULGES! In Red Hot RED
BAD BAD COLOR
Funky for an after party
Not too bad.
Those fuffles again
Beautiful for the OPERA….
To frizzy too cerise.
Layers gone wild
Well….it is an Autumn GALA.
Fringe….with those legs?
VEGAS here we come!
Diagonals AND ruffles?
Matha always wear the same short pants.
Shower cap is all she needs to complete the dress
Lace is soooo overdone.
This one I liked.
18 yatds of wasted fabric
Used a sequin bed sheet for this?
What is that white bunch on the hemline?
Bad hair….Bad dress
Very East Side bad taste.
Does anyone know who this atrocity is???
Christmas garland for trim.
22 Little minks gave uo their life for this stole.
So awful it is actually FUN.
Right off the color wheel.
rutches up into the crotch/
What is that gigantic rutch?
Hold it so you don’t trip on it.
HOLLYWOOD here we come.
Ruffles AND scallops?
Halloween is in October!
Where did she buy this?
Looks like the curtain in the hall
Nice for a garden party
She is too old for this dress
Peter Martins………Ballet Master
Very 60’s ……….
SARAH JESSICA PARKER was in a pink something………..the bodice and white bra were designed by Olivier Theyskens [long hair on the left] . The bottom of the dress designed by Probal Gurung [on her right]. It has a large flap pocket on the right thigh………and a slit up the back that the seamstress forgot to sew up.
Can’t figure out the sash belt………..and that oversized bow on the back. At least her earrings were tasteful.

HAIR HAIR HAIR…………waxed, flaxen, braided and straightened. Dyed, fried shorn and torn. Purple, pink, chartreuse………..well, just about every color in a rainbow…………and sometimes all on the same head.

Here are some of my faves.
NIKKI HILTON……..soft and loverly braids.
Fashion designer…………RACHEL ZOE…………always blonde always straight.
JANICE DICKENSON…………the most famous model in the 70’s…..and still looking good at 58. Her autobiography is a hoot……..you might get a kick out of it.
