Ailey Dancers to Wear Mark & James... Opening Night...

Dancers from the Alvin Ailey School of Dance will be among the first to wear gowns from Badgley Mischka’s new line Mark & James.

DIAMONDS FOR ALTRUISM: Lorraine Schwartz, is chalking up her success to one person: her mother. At Tuesday night’s Angel Ball to benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, Schwartz will unveil the Shulamit Benjamini Sandberg Medical Research Grant, named for her mother, who died of cancer. Schwartz has started the grant along with her sister and brother, Ofira and Ilan Sandberg. At the ball, hosted by Denise Rich at Cipriani Wall Street, Robin Thicke, Estelle and Jennifer Hudson are among those scheduled to present and perform. Schwartz has donated a pair of $92,000 earrings with 28 carats of diamonds, a style worn by Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé Knowles, Mary J Blige and Heidi Klum to benefit the charity. “The best accessory is feeling like you’re giving something back,” said Schwartz. “Although I think diamonds are a girl’s best friend, giving back is the mother of all.”
