In New York City, there are dozens of black tie galas a month. They're all for a good cause, but some are more glamorous and lively than others. For the under 35 crowd, the Frick Young Fellows Ball, held every spring, has the best mix of people watching (gentleman, please note: Princess Beatrice came solo this year!), unmatched elegance (guests really turn on the glamour), and fun (the dance floor and libations do not disappoint).

On March 16, some 600 guests embraced this year's moody-meets-magical theme—Turner by Moonlight—inspired by 19th century British land and seascape artist Joseph Turner. His work is on view at the museum through May 14th.

Carolina Herrera, a great patron of the museum, was the gown designer of choice for most of the crowd.

Nicky Hilton Rothschild wore a shimmering silver halter gown that evoked the artist's vast scenes of endless skies over far-as-the-eye can see oceans.

While, T&C Modern Swan Alessandra Balazs chose a Herrera black dress scattered with daisies, reminiscent of a wildflower landscape. Princess Beatrice also chose a theme-appropriate dark floral gown, though her featured a Victorian silhouette.

Proceeds from the evening go to museum programs, like the education department which serves New York City public schools in all five boroughs and the Frick Art Reference Library.
