Champagne with Gloria Vanderbilt

On Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 1st dibs Gallery threw a beautiful do for Gloria Vanderbilt, celebrating the opening of her exhibition, The Left Hand is the Dreamer:  Work in gouache, collage and pastel.  The art is softly beautiful, richly colorful and offered a hint of spring in this cold, hard winter in NYC.

Naturally, we all got as close as we could to the artist, who is an extraordinary legend in numerous fields, including art, fashion, and society. 

And standing nearby was CNN's Anderson Cooper, her affectionate son, whom everyone also wanted to admire.  

Among the admirers of the work was Woodard, as photographed by Greenstein.  

Fashionable  onlookers added energy to the evening, as did Designer Todd Black and Puck.  Mr. Black is the one on the right.  

Interior designer Sam Blount kept us all in good spirits.  The whole evening was very exciting.  How often does one get to spend it with a living legend?
