Support the New York Public Library in its Centennial Year at the most important annual event and one of the most anticipated dinners on New York City’s social calendar at the Library Lions Gala on Monday, November 1, sponsored by Asprey. The celebrated black tie event features honorees five distinguished individuals recognized for excellence in their respective fields of arts, letters, and scholarship-including award-winning author Malcolm Gladwell, celebrated actor and screenwriter Ethan Hawke, noted scholar and widely acclaimed leader of The New York Public Library Paul LeClerc, beloved writer and entertainer Steve Martin, and internationally renowned novelist Zadie Smith. As Mr. and Mrs. Oscar de la Renta are amongst the gala chairmen we went straight to Oscar to figure out what to wear. We found this stunning and iconic 1980’s Oscar de la Renta strapless duchesse satin ball gown with a full beaded silver and jet sequin bodice from 1stdibs.com that is perfect for such a luminous black tie event. We added a fur jacket and lots of incandescent jewels to complete the look with Oscar de la Renta heels and a satin and crystal clutch.
