The School of American Ballet's Winter Ball

Earlier this week, The School of American Ballet held their 2013 Winter Ball: A Night in the Far East at Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater. The annual dinner dance was attended by more than 400 patrons, including the School's board members and alumni, as well as leaders from New York corporate and social communities. Van Cleef & Arpels and Ron Wendt Design put on quite the display, evoking the colors and ornaments of the Baron Alexis de Rede's 1969 Le Bal Oriental held at the Hotel Lambert in Paris. Van Cleef & Arpels was the lead corporate sponsor of the gala for the sixth year in a row. The ball began with cocktails and dinner, followed by a performance and then The Encore dessert and dancing.

Mayor Goodman Models Swimwear for Charity!

When it comes to Fran Drescher and Mayor Oscar Goodman, you'd expect the one who'd always be remembered with a poof and a cheetah print skirt-suit to be the one to make a memorable entrance. On the contrary, The Nanny star's arrival to the start of The Jewish Federation of Las Vegas' charity fashion show was enthusiastic, but not over-the-top. Mayor Goodman, however, made quite the entrance, wearing not much more than swim trunks, a hoodie, and a towel!

And this is the man who is looking to take on President Obama after his recent Vegas denunciation earlier this week?
