Pushing style boundaries: Sarah Jessica, Daphne and Karolina in limelight at ballet gala

Guests at the New York Ballet Gala included sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Karolina Kurkova

The New York Ballet Gala was always going to be packed full of lovely gowns.

But there was a few celebrity attendees who went that extra mile to get noticed, stepping out in show-stopping outfits for the glittering event.



Sarah Jessica Parker, Karolina Kurkova and Daphne Guinness were all pushing boundaries with their bold style choices.

Sex And The City star Sarah was in full bloom in a floral-print chiffon dress with a regal brocade jacket with box shoulders.

Her long ash-blonde hair was piled on her head and adorned with a purple flower.

The actress was upstaged, however, by model Karolina, who wore a dramatic voluminous floor-length red gown with a long cape.

The prize for most daring accessories went to Daphne Guinness, however. The fashionista heiress accessorised her black taffeta dress with a painful looking neck coil, a jewel-encrusted chain mail glove and a huge silver watch.

On her feet she wore gravity defying Alexander McQueen heel-less platforms.

It was a look that Lady Gaga would have loved. Little wonder then, that the pop singer loves Daphne's style – she was the top buyer when 44-year-old Daphne put more than 100 items from her designer wardrobe up for sale.

Other more conservatively-dressed guests at the event – which paid tribute to fashion designer Valentino – included Anne Hathaway.
