    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.
