The event was honoring Milena Alberti-Pérez and David Pérez Pe.
The Nuestra Inspiración Award was given to Ben Rodriguez-Cubeñas.
The evening was about celebrating "Puentes" Ballet Hispanico's Education Programs.
The event chairs were Jody & John Arnhold Kate Lear & Jon LaPook Marcos A. Rodriguez and Greidys Gil & Luis Zaldivar.
My favorite part of the event was when the children came out to dance for the guests. Their smiles and excitement always make me so happy.

The School of American Ballet Dinner

I am always so happy when the weather is still so cold to be reminded that Spring is on it's way. That was how I felt when I walked up to the dinner level at the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the School of American Ballet Event.
The very talented team from  Ron Wendt Design had filled the tables with beautiful spring flowers and echooed the colors by suspending shear colored panels from the very high ceiling. I spotted Ron and Philip with Julia Koch who looked absolutly stunning in her white gown.
The sponsor for the event  Van Cleef and Arpels had an array of beautiful jewels on a group lovely models who stood around like mannequins during the cocktails.
At one point I turned around only to discover I was standing beside Chelsea Clinton and her husband as they chatted to Peter Martins and his wife. They all graciously posed for a photo.
I am always so happy to see Gillian Miniter and her husband Sylvester. They always find time to stop for a quick chat and I love hearing about their adventures and travels.
Coco Kopleman and her daughter Jill Kargman were both stunning in black and white as was Lisa Perry. To see all the images please click on this link  View all photos

Julie Skarratt in Quest Magazine

I am very excited to share this story that appeared in Quest Magazine. People often ask me what it was like modeling in the 80's and being part of the Eileen Ford Agency in NY.
Here is a little snippet with photos from my modeling assignments that took me from Sydney to Tokyo then on to Milan, Paris, Hamburg and finally NY.
I never set out with the intention of becoming a photographer however every step of my life has lead me in that direction.
Many thanks to Daniel Cappello who came up with the idea of this story and then made it happen. Thanks to Lily Hoagland who interviewed me and wrote the story. Also thanks to Thelma Garcia who helped me with the self portraits and where I could not hold the remote clicked the camera for me.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and all the best for 2015.
