Save Venice Ball

Last night was every thing I love about a great party.Here is how they do it! Start with The Plaza Hotel Ballroom decorated by the fabulous Ron Wendt. Next fill it up with Co-Chairs, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Mary Kthryn Navab, Carlos Sousa and Matt White, then add International Co-Chairs, Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti and Nadia Swarovski, plus Young Friends Co-Chairs Olivia Chantecaille, Amanda Hearst, Alexandra Lind Rose, and Luigi Tadini and you know the room is going to be buzzing.
This event raises money to restore art works in Venice and in keeping with the theme of Carnival many of the guests were inspired to wear masks and costumes. Francesco Clementi won an award for the best mask while Beatrix Ost won for best costume. Courtney Love was looking great. I didn't see her till the end of the night and so she popped her mask on for me and threw her arms in the air.
After dinner the music was turned up and the dancing got going. It didn't take long for Colin Cowie to have women dancing on the tables and spinning on the floor. Other guests returned to the foyer where Grey Goose cocktails awaited them. It was well after midnight when I looked at my watch. Where did the time go?
