On January 20th, the San Francisco Ballet Auxiliary hosted Silver Celebration honoring Helgi Tomasson’s 25 years as Artistic Director, and launching SF Ballet’s 2010 season. It was a beautiful event and performance, and created real excitement about this, the 77th repertory season.

The real brilliance of the Ballet is on stage, but as we perused Drew Altizer’s photos from the night we were impressed by the easy, glamorous style of San Francisco’s cultural supporters.

We love how people dress for this evening each year. Symphony style has a conservative formality that can make people seem stiff and uncomfortable; Opera style is about the big dramatic statement (stunning, but sometimes overpowering to the wearer); but Ballet style is all about the body looking beautiful in movement. Here we present our favorite looks of the night, worn by these men and women as they enjoy the evening, looking wonderful while suffused by the energy of dance.
