ROCOCO DiverseWorks' Fashion Fête ANNE LEE PHILLIPS SITS FRONT ROW. PHOTOGRAPHY ROSWITHA VOLGER FOR PHOTOS BY ROVO. I n a spectacular creative super-fecta, art, fashion, dance and music collided at the second annual Art of the Runway, benefitting DiverseWorks. Stylish co-chair foursome Caroline Starry LeBlanc, Duyen Huynh, Kate Stukenberg, and Gail Rubin (who was stuck in NY on biz) tapped artist board members to design the ornate rococo-themed affair. Specially constructed wooden swings adorned in fuchsia roses surrounded the runway, providing a posh perch for each underwriter — all the better to admire the models in their intricate animal masks and the latest threads from Laboratoria, Leap, Sloan/Hall and Settlement Goods & Design. The art and fashion sets mingled over bites from Dua, L'Olivier, The Fish and The Refinery. Fashion plates: Penelope and Lester Marks, Chad Seabold, Allie Fields, Sarah Starry de Mendoza, Brooke Herzstein Feather, Ruth Davis, Deborah Colton, Alex Rosa, Matt Johns, Alecia Harris, DW then-director Elizabeth Dunbar, Marc Nguyen, and Tim Moloney.
