We were delighted to see several friends and readers in the fashion coverage that Carolyne Zinko (of the San Francisco Chronicle) gave of the 2010 Symphony and Opera opening nights. Carolyne conducted a reader poll, and came up with the public’s picks for the best dressed women at both events.
The Symphony look with the most votes was Yurie Pascarella‘s cream-and-black gown by the late Italian designer Gianfranco Ferre, followed by a tie between Elizabeth Touw and Deepa Pakianathan for second place. For the Opera, Deepa again captured the attention of Chronicle readers – her Zuhair Murad dress worn with a Rosalina Lydster diamond choker ($120,000) and pendant ($48,000) received the most votes.
But here at SFLuxe.com, we are not a democracy, and the only vote we count is our own! So after debating with friends around town for over a week, and pouring over approximately 6,000 photos provided by Drew Altizer, we have narrowed down our selection to the following twenty.
A note on our criteria: we only considered photos of women by themselves (no group shots or dates), and are only including one look per woman.
