Christine and Steve Schwarzman

Winter arrived in style at the 10th annual New York Botanical Garden Winter Wonderland Ball. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the Garden’s landmark crystal palace, hosted 350 guests for a black-tie evening of cocktails, dinner, and dancing under a cold, clear sky. Chanel Jewelry sponsored the event, which honored the Camellia, Coco Chanel’s favorite flower, and the centerpiece of every table.

Attendees joined Chairs Cristina Cuomo, Marjorie Gubelmann, Alex Kramer, Emma J.P. Goergen, Nina Garcia, Alexandra Lebenthal, Rebekah McCabe, Molly Sims, Christian Leone, Byrdie Bell, Martin Dawson, Minnie Mortimer Gaghan, Dalia Oberlander, Gillian Hearst Simonds, Blake Lively, Whitney and James Fairchild, Pauline Joerger, and Nathalie Kaplan in supporting children’s education programs at the Botanical Garden, which invite children of all ages to engage with the beauty and intricacy of the natural world.
