One thing everyone should know about New York City is that every event is a perfect opportunity to leave a fashionably lasting impression. Celebrities, of course, have this mantra down to a T. At this week’s American Ballet Theatre Gala in NYC, there was plenty of memorable couture, including Solange Knowles’ floral Dolce and Gabbana gown and Mary Louise Parker’s in a wine colored satin dress by Anne Klein. We’d also like to add that Solange pulled off the dark lip and eye look beautifully, amending the age old rule of never donning a bold eye and lip. How’d she do it? She created balance by opting for sparkly midnight blue eye shadow and a matte lip. (We secretly can’t wait to try this!) Who got your vote for best dressed?
