What I Wore: Save Venice Gala Un Ballo in Maschera: A Night on the Lido

Amanda Hearst discusses that spectacular ensemble she chose for the Save Venice Gala Masquerade Gala.

Last night, I, along with Luigi Tadini (pictured), Olivia Chantecaille, Beatrice Rossi-Landi, Mary Katheryn Navab, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Matthew White, and Alexandra Lind Rose chaired Save Venice's annual gala. As usual, it was a masked affair filled with fancifully dressed invitees, all wearing big gowns and even bigger headpieces.

Last year, I donned a huge Valentino gown, so this year I thought to wear something a bit more manageable. I opted for a black Badgley Mischka gown with a gathering of tulle at the bottom. Since Badgley Mischka and jewelry house de Grisogono were this year's sponsors, I got to wear a killer dress and killer jewelry!

Here are the de Grisogono earrings I chose for the event. I initially planned to go with the green version of these, but it ended up being too difficult to find a purse to match. So, I opted for these stunning, all-white, diamond "Gocce" danglers set in 18 karat white gold. Beautiful!

Thank you, Judith Lieber, for loaning me such a stunning purse! I loved this little box clutch, and think it complemented the earrings wonderfully. And, here is the mask I donned. I literally bought it the same day as the event at Zitomer's, but it was perfect because I could take it on and off as often as I wished.
