The Olana Partnership’s 2014 Frederic E. Church Award Gala will be held on Thursday, June 19 at the New York Public Library in New York City.

The Frederic E. Church Award (FEC) is given as a celebration of art, landscape and culture.

For what to wear to this elegant evening of celebration, we chose a beautiful coral that is so pretty for summer formals and parties.  All three possess a refined femininity in the drape and folds that we find so flattering.  Each beautiful neckline has a strong point of view.  The jeweled halter is so elegant, the scoop neck so feminine, and the sweetheart strapless is extremely flattering to most silhouettes.  We love this shade complemented by highlights of gold. Choose the  Jimmy Choo sandals are so special and  will waltz you through all of your summer soirées.
