Inside the Mid-Winter Gala 2007

BY Damion Matthews - March 19, 2007


It was like a Traina family reunion at the de Young on Saturday evening. Not one, not two, not three, but seven of them showed up looking uber-fabulous. There was Vanessa in vintage Balmain couture (with a divine black turban), Victoria in Christian Lacroix couture, Samantha in Proenza Schouler, Katie in Balenciaga with husband Todd, Alexis in Donna Karan, and her new hubby Trevor.

The mid-winter gala, celebrating the de Young’s Vivienne Westwood exhibit, grossed $400,000 for the museum. Other chic attendees included Getty-glam Vanessa in Lanvin, Kimberly Bini in Dior, Tatiana Sorokko in Ralph Rucci, Shannon Bavaro in Valentino. I could go on and on, but you really just want to see the pictures anyway — and as usual, the fabulous Drew Altizer was there to get them.

I know it was St. Patrick’s Day, but there’s still no excuse for that, sir… back to the ladies.
Much better!

And yes, girls, Gavin Newsom was there too (here, chatting with Trevor Traina.) What do you suppose has caught his eye?

Oh, that’s just cheeky!
