Each year, Women’s Project Theater recognizes the extraordinary accomplishments of women from the worlds of entertainment, business, and philanthropy at the Women of Achievement Awards Gala. The 2014 Gala will be held at Mandarin Oriental New York on Monday, March 10, 2014.

What to wear? If you know our dazzling friend, Lucia Hwong Gordon, “Sparkle or Splash of Red” so aptly describes her sense of style. We dashed to Bergdorf Goodman and found three sophisticated festive dress that are fit for the theatrical fete. Choose the Talbot Runhof two-tone classic black and white, the Carmen Marc Valvo’s vivid Scarlett Strapless Beaded Waist, or the Armani Collezioni’s Peaked Strapless Taffeta to create non-stop, show stopping style. We popped a little red and bling in classic accessories to combine in countless ways. Oscar de la Renta is designing some of the most fun fashion jewelry this season, and the Bold Pear-Shaped Drop Clip-On Earrings and Resin Rose Clip Earrings create a stunning statement accent. On your toes, nothing but high heels will do, so slip into Alexander McQueen’s d’Orsay Ankle-Wrap Sandal or Sophia Webster’s Coco 5 Satin Point-Toe Pump. What is THE accessory that we are craving this season? A Edie Parker’s ice bedecked with gold confetti clutch.
