Who: Claire Courtin-Clarins
Where: The Henry Street Settlement Gala honoring Reed Krakoff, Alexandra Lebenthal and Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster.
When: April 4
What: Brunswick (green) liquid satin pleat dress; Brunswick wool-cashmere, sleeveless sweater, and white alligator mini flap bag, all by Reed Krakoff.
Why: In a sea of pouffy ball gowns and bias cut dresses, Courtin-Clarins’ take on uptown black tie is clean-lined and unexpected.
