Read below for the roster of celebs.
For what to wear to such a star studded event, we shopped honoree, Ralph Lauren to find the right mix of glamour and and sass to hob nob with happening Hollywood Conservationists. We love the play of the chiffon strapless against the whipstitched suede jacket. And by the way, did you notice the price of the dress. Simply amazing! RL is one of the few designers who can do couture AND accessibly priced fashion with panache.
Titans and Tigersharks and Stars, Oh My!
To celebrate Riverkeeper’s first 50 years of Hudson River protection, the Ball will feature the premiere of a Tribeca Film Fellows® short documentary on Riverkeeper titled “Keeping On,” with special recognition of Tribeca Film Festival® and Tribeca Institute® co-founder Robert DeNiro for advancing awareness of environmental issues through film.
