FEMALE POWER: A cool, autumnal air circulated throughout the Metropolitan Museum of Art last week as The Boys’ Club of New York hosted the city’s do-good guests for its 66th annual fall gala. The night was sponsored by Oscar de la Renta, who provided not only original printed cloths and floral arrangements for each table but also many of the gowns worn for the night. Guests such as Amy Griffin, the women’s board president, Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, Eleanor Dejoux and Jamee Gregory huddled next to the Temple of Dendur, while Hannah Bronfman DJ’d for the crowd.

“This night is made up for 45 women in New York who are strong, confident and doing good for others,” said Griffin, showing off her rather toned arms in her hot pink and orange Oscar de la Renta sheath. “I’m doing a lot of Tracy Anderson,” she explained. “Oh, and tennis.”

Gregory also donned the designer that night, though she explained she was extra careful while walking into the event.

“I was at the Met last week, and my shoe got stuck in the grate, like Cinderella. My husband had to rip it off, so the heel got separated,” she said. “So, today, the shoes came back just in time from Empire Shoe Repair, and tonight I tiptoed over the grate.”

But not all guests opted to sport de la Renta. One designer even decided not to wear one of her own creations.

“I mix it up every now and then,” said Tory Burch of her blush-pink Prada dress.
