Here are a few celebrities spotted at the New York City Ballet Gala. Not all featured women are 40 yet, but I wanted to include them here so we can all be inspired by their style.
1. Christine Lagarde
Christine Lagarde (1956) is a French lawyer and Union for a Popular Movement politician who has been the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund since 5 July 2011. She is well known for her great style is wearing a unique two-piece ensemble this evening.
2. Olivia Palermo
Olivia Palermo is an American socialite who seems to be everywhere these days and is a style icon for many. This style has been quite popular at awards shows recently, but I’m personally not a huge fan, even though Olivia does wear it extremely well.
4. Michelle Smith
Michelle Smith de Bruin (1969) is a retired Irish swimmer who achieved notable success in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, becoming Ireland’s most successful Olympian to date. She is is currently a practising barrister. I love this chic ensemble that makes a color statement.

9. Patti Smith
Last but not least there is the inimitable Patti Smith, who still looks like a rock star.
It is very possible that there are more celebrities in all the photos I have from the ballet gala, but these are the women either I or Denton recognised. You will have to help me spot other celebrities as I have many more gorgeous looks to show you in future posts!
Which of these looks is your favorite?
