A Devotion to Elegance

| May 7, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY New York-based couturier Ralph Rucci personally introduced looks from his Chado Ralph Rucci ready-to-wear fall collection at a luncheon in his honor held at Saks Fifth Avenue. THE PLAYERS Mary Ann Weisberg, Rochelle Gores Fredston, Karen Sanders, Alyssa Fung, Mary Martin, Tonya Winfield, Olivia Wolfensberger THE HIGHLIGHTS Rucci, who is known for the technical feats he’s mastered over his 31-year career, gave a running commentary on his fall fur coats and dresses cut on the bias as luncheon guests including Susan Casden, Angelique Soave and Liz Goldwyn watched models walk between tables. Glancing at his friend, former model Tatiana Sorokko, Rucci introduced a short version of his airy infanta gown, saying, “This is an easier version of my infanta, which only Tatiana seems to really be able to carry off.” Photos courtesy of Donato Sardella/WireImage
