Robert Isabell will make the setting beautiful and contemporary with steel tables covered with sheer gray organza and centered with custom-designed four-foot tall aluminum candlesticks towering over an assortment of glass vases filled with spring flowers and clusters of pillar candles. The dinner chairmen are Remi and Olivier Krug, who will provide the champagne, and the entire evening is a celebration of NYCB's Diamond Project showcasing some of the talented choreographers who are shaping classical dance today.

Opening night, a charity event for CARE, will be under the patronage of the Mayor of Paris, Jacques Chirac, and France's Ambassador to the U.S. Jacques Andreani. Comme il faut et comme ìa.
It won't happen until Oct. 28, but Barbara Davis, the incomparable Beverly Hills hostess and fund-raiser, is telling the world that her Carousel of Hope ball benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation has already raised $2.3 million.

The marvelous items to be sold at the silent auction just before the gala at the Beverly Hilton include luxury cars and dream cruises.
