A Star Studded Event

Yesterday evening Swarovski Elements added a bit of sparkle to the city when it hosted an exclusive charity auction at the acclaimed Phillips de Pury & Company auction house. The project—22 Ways to Say Black, raised an impressive $100,000 for breast cancer research through the auction of 22 one-of-a-kind little black dresses. Each frock was created by a distinguished designer or rising talent. Diane von Furstenberg, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Missoni were among the houses who designed a dazzling look to benefit the cause. Halle Berry, Julianna Margulies, and Sofia Vergara attended in in their own favorite LBD's; they accessorized with Swarovski's sparkling jewels. Suffice it to say, the benefit was one sparkling soiree! ~Kristina Kawas
