25 Phenomenal Looks From SF Ballet Gala 2014

“Phenomenal” was theme for the 2014 San Francisco Ballet’s Opening Night Gala, but also describes the looks put together by gala guests.

With gala chair Tanya Powell starting the evening in an elegant Vera Wang ball gown and ending in a short runway-worthy Dolce & Gabbana, there was a full gamut of looks.

One saw understated elegance with Yurie Pascarella in Andrew Gn and Mary Beth Shimmon in Chanel; a full flowering of colors, shapes and textures from Deepa Pakianathan, Paula Carano, Sonya Molodetskaya, Elizabeth Fullerton and Komal Shah; and striking black dresses on Karen Caldwell, Azadeh Riaz, Stephanie Southerland, Stephanie Ejabat, and SF Ballet’s Principal Dancer Mathilde Froustey.

Dior’s Launch at Saks Fifth Avenue, San Francisco

Christian Dior celebrated the opening of its new boutique inside San Francisco’s Saks Fifth Avenue with a preview of the 2014 Cruise Collection, hosted by Alexis Traina and Victoire Reynal Brown.

The gorgeous new space, designed in Dior’s signature style, is surely to become a new couture haven for some of the area’s best dressed women, such as guests Stephanie Ejabat, Sloan Barnett, Katie Traina, Jacqueline Sacks, and Pam Baer.

Sixteen Striking Looks from the 2013 Opera Ball

Although so many of our friends looked beautiful this year at the Opera Ball, we found that these 16 women brought a special something to the evening — a unique color, a striking silhouette, a new designer, or a wonderful vintage treasure.

The elegance of Marissa Mayer in Jason Wu, Mary Beth Shimmon in sultry caped chiffon designed by the late Bill Blass, or Stefanie Ejabat in a jubilant look created by Giambattista Valli, are just a few instances of why San Francisco’s 91st Opera Ball was as dazzling off stage as on for those who love fashion.

Cinderella Chic

In celebration of the U.S. premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s Cinderella, SF Ballet hosted a fundraising dinner on May 3, 2013, in a gorgeous tented pavilion masterfully designed by Riccardo Benavides in the Memorial Court between the War Memorial Opera House and the Veterans Building.

Inspired by the theme of the evening, many dressed in the most fanciful fairy tale gowns, while others went for a more modern look. Everyone looked absolutely lovely (not a wicked stepmother in sight!)

Here, with photos courtesy of http://drewaltizer.com / Drew Altizer , we present our selection of the 25 most chic looks of the evening.
