The Young Fellows of The Frick Collection have partnered with Christian Dior Couture to host a benefit entitled “An Evening of Nouveau Glamour” on Thursday, February 6, 2003, from 8:30 pm to midnight.  This annual themed fund-raising event has been held every winter beginning in 2000 and is consistently named by The New York Times as one of the top the parties of the year.  Tickets to past events — The Edwardian Ball, The Tartan Ball, and last year’s Fête des Quatre Saisons sold out quickly to supporters of the Collection and their guests.  Some 700 people are expected to attend this year’s event, which derives its sleek and sophisticated sensibility from the idea of glamour — both past and present.  The Chairmen of “An Evening of Nouveau Glamour” are Marina Rust Connor, Lauren du Pont, Nathalie Gerschel Kaplan, and Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, with Honorary Chairman Sidney Toledano, President and C.E.O. of Christian Dior Couture.  The Vice-Chairs are Martha Loring, Louise Schliemann, and Genevieve Wheeler.  Proceeds for the event will support the Educational Program of The Frick Collection.
