Jean Shafiroff

Style icon Jean Shafiroff showed up at this year's American Ballet Theater Gala looking picture perfect in an Oscar de la Renta gown from her private collection. The gown was originally designed by Mr. de la Renta in 2012 for his Spring Collection. To complete her look, Ms. Shafiroff wore pristine white leather opera length gloves. While most women would hesitate to wear a gown that was 7 years old, Jean Shafiroff proudly wore the gown which was a red carpet winner. 

This year's American Ballet Spring Gala was held on May 20, 2019 at the Metropolitan Opera House. The event honored Andrew F. Barth and Alexei Ratmansky. Over $2,000,000 was raised.

American Ballet Theatre is considered one of the greatest dance companies in the world, revered as a living national treasure since its founding in 1939. Few ballet companies rival ABT in size, scope, and outreach. Though located in New York City, ABT annually tours the United States – performing for 300,000 people annually – and is the only major cultural institution to do so. The Company has made more than 30 international tours to 45 countries in order to share American ballet with the world, and on many of these engagements ABT received sponsorship from the State Department of the United States Government.
