Though times may be grim, one thing is for certain, tradition never dies. The annual Winter Wonderland Ball, one of the hottest events on the social scene, was held this year at New York's Botanical Gardens. Chanel Fine Jewelry was the sponsor of the night, which was evident by the camellia flowers that were in full bloom along with the black and white decor. Along with the classy Christmas theme, was a train show that went throughout a miniature New York scene. Byrdie Bell, Junior chair, surprised everyone with her choice of opting out of the traditional ball gown and wearing a sparkly jumpsuit. Following in the footsteps of Coco by showing everyone you can be just as elegant in pants.
