The School of American Ballet Annual Winter Ball Raises $1.1 Million and a moment with Carolina Herrera…

The School of American Ballet Winter Ball

It was an enchanting evening… everything you’d expect and more from The School of American Ballet’s 2013 Winter Ball. Themed A Night in the Far East, the annual charity gala raised more than $1.1 Million for Scholarships and School Programs. Hosted at the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center earlier this week, the evening was sponsored by legendary French MaisonVan Cleef & Arpels. Cocktails began at 7pm and dinner at 8pm, followed by a one-time-only performance by the advanced students of The School of American Ballet choreographed by Silas Farley, who was selected by Peter Martins, Artistic Chairman of The School of American Ballet.

 “We are thrilled to announce that we achieved our goal of $1.1 million.  The overwhelming generosity of our sponsor Van Cleef as well as our attendees and donors made for a fantastic celebration last night,” said Margie Van Dercook, executive director of The School of American Ballet.  “Their much-appreciated donations will provide scholarships to aspiring young dancers as well as support the School’s student life programs.”

The highlight of my evening as most of you saw and remarked on Facebook and Instagram — the moment the world stopped — was when I met Carolina Herrera. I was walking down the stairs of Lincoln Center when I saw Mrs. Herrera in the lobby. Fully shaking I approached her to introduce myself and express what a fan I am. She’s a vision, elegantly dressed and

When getting ready for Valentine’s Day what better place to stop for some last minute gifts then Victoria’s Secret? I recently visited the Herald Square location to do a little shopping and meet two of VS’s Angels, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge!

LARA: What’s the best part about being an Angel?

CANDICE: It’s definitely a big title that every model wants and the recognition you get from the industry and the world, but for me the best thing is being able to travel to beautiful islands and to call the beach my office. That and being with the best people every time.

LARA: What are you most looking forward to on Valentine’s Day?

CANDICE: I’m funny on Valentine’s Day, I don’t expect too much. I do try to step out of comfort zone and wear something sexy and different. Also my boyfriend should plan something nice for us, it’s his day too.

Candice’s V-Day Gift Picks:

Very Sexy Push-Up Bra $55 – $68
Very Sexy Lace Garter Slip: $88
Victoria’s Secret Eau De Parfum Gift Set: $45
Victoria’s Secret Vosges Chocolates

PC Honored by Mondrian Soho x NMRKT

You know what, I really like hosting events. I mean really, REALLY like hosting them. Last week I was honored alongside D.Brand as part of a monthly fashion series that NMRKT and Mondrian Soho produce. Every month, the duo picks a different blogger and designer to celebrate and lets them host a party. And at Mondrian’s Mister H no less!

So basically, dream venue (if you haven’t been it’s straight out of the 70s nightclub — red lighting, stripper poles — and yet somehow it’s still manages to be classy). What I like most is that it’s a very intimate space so you can actually enjoy your guests instead of having to search for them. I had a ball! Over 150 of my readers, pr peeps, bloggers and friends came to support. I was so humbled by the turn out and felt so honored to host such an incredible group.

If you’re not familiar with NMRKT or D.Brand, lets fix that! NMRKT hosts an incredibly cute site that poses the question, what are you in the market for, and then

Lets face it; we all have a story. Mine is Big Mouth Billy Bass. He’s that seemingly cute fish you mounts on your wall that sings Bobby McFerrin‘s, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” every time you hit the button. It’s fun and humorous the for the first 50 times you hear it and then after that you want to throw it out the window. Or in my case, re-gift it!
