Evening Color

Newport Parties

Newport party pics from the New York Times

I always scan these pages looking for friends (Sherri Grace in her amazing purple gown, circled). Personally, I am not a big party person. I am such an early riser that I am really not much fun nor very interesting after 9pm and this may be why my “new” floor length evening gown still has the tags on it (it is two years old).

I am always stumped as to why the magazines devote so much coverage to evening wear. However, as this page illustrates, more women are buying and wearing it than just celebs on the red carpet. I love how the guests are so happy and colorful and there are very few black dresses. Makes me want to rip the tags off my dress, take an afternoon nap and go to a ball!

  • Being a Californian, I’m about color year-round. I usually have two or three formal events I go to a year, and I will wearfloor-length evening gowns in pink or green (my organization’s colors). I also like color in cocktail dress-type evening settings.
