You have probably seen the San Francisco Chronicle’s poll for readers to chose their favorite gown from the opening night gala of the San Francisco Ballet. The choices include dresses worn by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Jenny Georges, Kris Anthony, Melissa Barber and Yurie Pascarella. At the moment, Chronicle readers have selected Jenny Georges’ deep-plum gown by Verrieres & Sako.

We thought you’d like to see a few more “winners” from the evening. You won’t find any embarrassing polls here — we think all of these women looked magnificent.
