Enchanted!

For me, the idea of “style” is related to the appreciation of so many things: art, nature, food – even trash on the street. I find inspiration everywhere. Which is why this post, mainly a collection of images from Friday night’s Corcoran Ball, features just as many photographs of decor as it does clothing.

I arrived Friday evening (in my polka-dot, vintage Betsy Johnson dress) to find my workplace completely and utterly transformed into a dream-like fantasy world. Every room was different – the lighting, linens, and tablewear inspired by the artwork in that particular gallery.

One room featured antique crystal and furniture (above), while another – definitely my favorite – so lovingly captured the lushly feminine Vigee-Lebrun portrait that to sit in the room felt like being inside the painting itself. This was easily the most special gala event I’ve attended in Washington.

These tablecloths were fashioned entirely from the corners usually sliced off and discarded when a round tablecloth is made:

And these pink silk beauties were custom-made for the Corcoran Ball:

And now, for some outfits! Art-world-eccentric-perfection:

A painterly, classic Oscar de la Renta gown:
