“Phenomenal” was theme for the 2014 San Francisco Balletâ€™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.
