At the New York City Ballet gala. Spectacular dancing, wonderful Silas Farley premiere and the timeless Balanchine Stravinsky Violin concerto. Celebrating with Linda Murray, curator of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library.  I am so grateful to Linda who has been so instrumental to my current research and am so honored to sit on the committee for Linda’s dance division, the preeminent and most extensive dance archive in the world. Come to the ballet! And delve into the treasures across the plaza at the dance archives!…….#jeromerobbinsdancedivision #nypl #nycballet #newyorkcityballet @nycballet #silasfarley #balanchineforever #balanchine

Bonheur! And lucky me—I got the last four sprigs of lily of the valley at my florist.  It is Dior’s favorite flower and very much mine. Wishing all a very happy first of May. Xx.  #mayday #bonheur #diorissimo #dior #diorissimoforever

Night life in the time of Covid. Slightly after 10 last night, after the theater, all the usual haunts were  closing. ( Is this the new reality?.) A kind maitre d’ directed us to the one place he could think of—the Whiskey Trader on West 55th Street. Sports screens, popcorn, the waitresses in Daisy Mae shorts, and  crowded (after all, it was  the only game in town!). And guess what ? We had a great time! New York in her infinite variety never fails. ……….#nightlifeinthetimeofcovid #lifeinthetimeofcovid19 #newyorkinthetimeofcovid #posttheaterdrink #manhattanvalentine

Enchantress Dorian Leigh entreating a dispassionate  Ray Bolger as Santa. (Vogue, December 13, 1946. ) I think she’s asking him for the New Look but he’s clearly preoccupied by his choreography by Balanchine for the upcoming production of Where’s Charley?…… Merry Christmas to all, wherever you may be, whatever is on your mind! ……#dorianleigh #raybolger #taplegends #vogue #newlookforever #balanchinestories

Celebrating @justinepicardie and the triumph of Miss Dior, a book that explores the liminal space between history and what really happened—-via the life of Catherine Dior, heroine of the French Résistance and sister of  Christian. Miss Dior, the perfume that evoked love and possibility as the world emerged from war, was Dior’s enduring tribute to his sister. Now Justine’s book joins Dior in paying homage to Catherine, whose life affirmed beauty, love, and moral courage in the face of the chilling depravity of WW II. A powerful, inspiring story that needed telling. Brava and merci, Justine! .………..#missdior #diordesignerofdreams #barjacket #lifeisbetterwithchampagne @dior @fsgbooks #diorheadtotoe #sisterhood
