Valentino and Lincoln Center Throw A Beyond-Chic Spring Fling

It's time again to dress to impress and get in the Lincoln Center frame of mind. (And no, we're not talking about Fashion Week.) This coming Monday, June 13, the Junior Spring Benefit for the Lincoln Center Institute is destined to turn your Manic Monday into a very special evening for a worthy cause close to our hearts. Join Valentino and a committee of NYC's younger, fashion-forward philanthropists for some chic eats, d-d-dancing with DJ Chelsea Leland, and—wait for it—a performance from Karen Elson, all at the summer-perfect terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel. So, wear something truly fabulous (Valentino if you can, natch), and booze guilt-free—your partying is benefiting the Lincoln Center Institute, the organization responsible for bringing fine and performing arts to public schools with programs that teach underprivileged students skills like imagination and critical thinking in unique and interesting ways. Benefit chairs include Mamie Gummer, Zoe Kazan, Tony Award nominee Lily Rabe, and the soon-to-be "Great Gatsby" star Carey Mulligan, who can always rock 'Tino terrifically. While we hate for the weekend to end, this week we are actually waiting for Monday to come. Get your tickets now, you won't want to miss this one.
