The Lenox Hill Gala is one of those must-attend events, benefiting a worthy cause and celebrating one of my favorite decorative art forms, i.e., the table setting!

I was more than thrilled and delighted to be invited by my fellow interior designer and blogger, the lovely and super chic Allison Hennessy – her terrific table setting was unquestionably one of the highlights of the evening, and it was complimented by THE most divine and delicious collection of dinner guests. In fact, this year’s gala was a real standout, with all involved rising to the occasion to produce some truly ravishing results.

Thank You, Allison!

Thank You, Allison!

I’m pictured (top) at this elegant and festive evening, wearing my favorite Tom Ford magenta silk ottoman cloth dinner jacket, white cotton voile tuxedo shirt, black wool barethea evening trousers, black and white silk pocket square, black patent opera pumps with black evening hose, a spectacular diamond evening set by M. de Phocas and my fragrance is Creed Original Cologne. A touch of Tom Ford bronzing gel for a bit of a sun kissed glow.
