Masquerade ball magic

Gilt Groupe opened up a fantastic sale of twelve masquerade masks created by some of my favorite fashion designers this morning -- with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Art of Elysium, a non-profit organization that works with children battling serious medical conditions. Back in high school, I interned for a fashion designer who was preparing her costume for the Venetian Masquerade Ball. We bought fantastic hats and masks -- all ostentatiously yet beautifully decorated with an assortment of feathers and adornments. Needless to say, I have made it one of my life goals to attend the Ball. When mystery combines with beauty, you get allure -- and that's irresistible.

J'adore Rodarte and Behnaz Sarafpour -- but Erin Fetherston's vixen of a panther is tempting too. And Brian Reyes' simple but expressive mask has a charming doll-like quality, no? Which one is your favorite? Click here to join Gilt Groupe if you're not a member already!
