The Party: For the annual spring gala, the Frick Museum’s Bal de Chinoiserie took on glamorous flavors of Old Shanghai, as ball gowns were offset by hand fans and the occassional cheongsam. The Players: Alexandra Lebenthal and Elisabeth Saint-Amand mingled with designer Rachel Roy, who had outfitted author Lesley Blume and interior decorator Nina Freudenberger for the event. Where to Next: For uptowners, the after-party at Lavo. For everyone else, Mister H at The Mondrian Soho.
