Our Fave Red Carpet and Behind-the-Scenes Shots From New York City Ballet's 2019 Fall Fashion Gala

New York City Ballet's Fall Fashion Gala always gives us a chance to admire the dancers at their most glamorous, and this year was no exception. From premieres of new works by Lauren Lovette (paired with designer Zac Posen) and Edwaard Liang (with Anna Sui), to a sparkling rendition of Balanchine's Symphony in C, to a star-studded red carpet and reception, we had plenty to swoon over, both onstage and off.


Sarah Jessica Parker, the mastermind behind this annual event, was pretty in pink on the red carpet—and Zac Posen, who designed costumes for Lauren Lovette's The Shaded Line, cleaned up quite nicely as well.

Associate artistic director Wendy Whelan looked elegant (as always) in Chanel.

Choreographer and principal dancer Lauren Lovette got another Fall Fashion Gala premiere under her belt, and then SLAYED in this red Zac Posen number.

It was all a bit of a blur for former principal Robbie Fairchild, who came to support his sister, Megan Fairchild...

When Edwaard Liang joined the cast of his new ballet, Lineage, for curtain calls, Maria Kowroski greeted him with a massive hug that gave us all the warm fuzzies...

...and then they found one another at the post-performance reception (with Kowroski dressed in more Anna Sui, naturally).

Post-performance Indiana Woodward is an entire mood, and perfectly captured how we felt at the end of the whirlwind evening.

Jovani Furlan's Open-Hearted Dancing—And Personality—Lights Up New York City Ballet

Something magical happens when Jovani Furlan smiles at another dancer onstage.

"I could stare at him forever," says New York City Ballet principal Megan Fairchild. "He's just that kind of open spirit. He's not judging anything. It's like he's looking at you with his arms wide open and a big smile—even if he's not smiling, that's the energy he's giving you."
