We have a lot of theme parties, but not nearly enough of the elegantly costumed sort. Today's Magnum photos on Slate are amazing:
From an unspecified ball in 1965.

Truman Capote and guests at his Black and White Ball, held at the Plaza in 1966.

More Black and White Ball fabulousness.

It's so funny you should be writing about this. I just watched an episode of Barefoot Contessa the other day and she was talking about the Black and White Ball and even made "chicken hash" apparently this was one of Truman Capote's favorite dishes and he served it at the ball. I think one of these years we should do a black and white ball for New Years. Ambitious, huh!!!

Not TOO ambitious if we start planning now for next year...

Did you see the post a few weeks ago on the Chanel staircase with all the big white paper flowers? Because that would be PERFECT for a B&W ball...
