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.

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.
