The stars were aligned and though there was no snow fall, the night was no short of magic. The 12th annual Winter Wonderland Ball at the New York Botanical Garden is one of the most anticipated gala events of winter amongst New York City social circles. Some of the night’s attendees included Nina Garcia, designer Chris Benz, Tinsley Mortimer, Charlotte Ronson, and it wouldn’t really be a party if our very own Derek Warburton was not in attendance!  I am sure this event is the most “fabulousness” the Bronx has seen in a while since their very own Jenny from the Block was still riding the 6 train. In case you don’t believe me, check out all of the photos from the event! (courtesy of Patrick McMullan, Will Raggozino and  Steve Elchner)


When entering the venue, guests were greeted by a motor train show that zig zagged its way through a hand crafted miniature replica of some of New York City’s greatest monuments.  It was created with a elements from mother nature such as twigs, moss, leaves and grass.  (to create this it would take some tiny fingers and all of the patience in New York City!)


Following the motor train show, guests then recieved specialty cocktails that were mixed up by the night’s ‘happy juice’ sponsor  Domaine de Canton.


Following the cocktail hour, guest made there way into the ballroom where they were instantly thrust into a Winter Wonderland. The table scapes, the music, the lighting, the entire room’s ambiance embodied the theme.


And here are a few folks that you may know that were in attendance at the this fabulous soiree.


Our very own Derek Warburton was in attendance, sporting a black and white bow-tie, leopard print Christian Louboutin loafers and of course his ‘Weave Glasses”…..can you spell show stoppa?!



Fashion Editor, Nina Garcia looked fab in her beaded white gown.



Designer Chris Benz…and his pink hair…that we LOVE!!


Tinsley Mortimer, wore white also but, sexed her dress up by wearing a mini, one shoulder littler number.



Our favorite Mixologist, Darryl Robinson wore this champagne, tailored to the 9′s suit…WORKING IT HARD!


In case you weren’t able to make it to the Winter Wonderland Ball, like myself (cursing the mailman in my head, for losing my invite in the mail), I hope that you were able to live vicariously through these photos!
