Last night at the 9th annual New Yorkers for Children Spring Dinner Dance New Year's In April: A Fool's Fete (that was seriously the name of the event; also, are there New Yorkers who aren't for children? Because that would be an interesting party), model Crystal Renn looked as though she were the recipient of one of America's Next Top Model's nightmare makeovers in which they bleach a girl's eyebrows away in an effort to get her to cry so that she can be yelled at about how ungrateful she is.
This was definitely a very formal event with Crystal Renn (left) and Coco Rocha (right) wearing the designs of their date Zac Posen. But Alina Cho's (center) gown was so elaborate that a lot of the photos that she was in seemed like wedding portraits.
Creature arms were a big trend. Marisa Brown and Michelle Harper looked like they could fly away, while Linda Fargo kept it furry.
Selita Ebanks was a walking disco ball. It's unclear whether these three ladies planned to coordinate with their Britney Spears "Toxic" nudie sparkles. While I like the Mary Quant-esque design on Julie Macklowe's gown, but it looks like her panties are showing through one of the sheer panels.
Yellow was the biggest color of the evening: Cena Hackler Jackson, Kate Schelter, and Erin Heatherton.
Well, who wore it best: Amanda Richman Wurtz or Oluchi Orlandi?
So, "Jolie-ing" is actually happening, as evidenced by Cynthia Bailey and Jessica White. Tinsley Mortimer somehow managed to avoid acting on the urge to stick her leg out.
Muumuus forever! Katie Lee's is probably the most flattering here, maybe because of the plunging neckline [Ed: Does anyone know the designer behind this number? I want to fantasize about owning it], but Susan Shin's is like the real deal. Remember when Arden Wohl was an It Girl like five years ago who passionately endorsed headbands?
Erin Fetherston demonstrates how to wear the extended, see-thru skirt in a really cute, retro way that isn't as repugnant as Nicole Miller. It must've been hard for DJ Kiss to spin records with her bell sleeves.
Where does Olivia Sandelman think she is? Bonnaroo? She looks like she smells like hoagies because her Tom's of Maine doesn't work. You don't even need to see a picture of a lime-green stole and a leather dress bedazzled with large gems to know that it's a bad look. I have to say that the lady in blue is an endearing kind of mess because she looks like an alumna from a Russ Meyer film.
