A well-heeled crowd gathered at the Chateau de Versailles Friday night to toast Franco-American friendship at the Bal des Topiaires benefit organized by the American Friends of Versailles. U.S. ambassador to France Charles Rivkin and French presidential adviser Jean-David Levitte headed the diplomatic contingent, while French aristocrats and American heirs — including Ondine de Rothschild, Ariane Dandois, Louise and Charles Marsh, Steven Rockefeller 3rd and Collin Eckles — ramped up the glamour quota.


Barbara de Portago, whose stepfather, Gerald Van Der Kemp, oversaw the restoration of the castle after the Second World War, took the name of the ball literally, artfully twisting a few twigs of shrubbery into her diamond tiara.
