    First off, let's state the obvious—Karen Elson is drop dead, even three days after her divorce announcement from Jack White. Dress her in Valentino and we've officially become modelizers (can we insert some sort of V-card joke here?). So, you can imagine our straight-up crushing at Monday's dinner and dancing in support of the Junior Spring Benefit for Lincoln Center Institute, sponsored by the perpetually very, very chic Valentino. And, of course, the Italian brand was everywhere. We spotted it in the signature red on actress Lily Rabe, in leather LBD form on Zoe Kazan, and in a beige frock on Carey Mulligan, who starts filming her starring role in "The Great Gatsby" later this summer. Wine (Clos du Bois) before liquor (Double Cross vodka), never been sicker, or so the expression sort of goes..but we're willing to have a Monday Fail if it's in support of a worthy cause. And, when Karen Elson is singing to you (with three changes of guitars!), Tuesday is worth the tragedy. Plus...all the eye-candy!

    Check out these summer perfect cocktail outfits for yourself—obviously there's more than one snap of Miss Elson....

Combine that under-the-radar quality with an ethically sustainable business, and you have South Carolina-based Proud Mary — an e-boutique that works exclusively with artisans read
