lusting for: a bit of sparkle

France’s elegant First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is expressing her love of sparkles and LBDs by serving as patron of the 22 Ways to Say Black charity auction next month in New York.

Swarovski Elements asked 22 designers – including Sonia Rykiel, Vivienne Westwood, Giorgio Armani PrivĂ©, Thakoon and Alber Elbaz (Lanvin) – to create their own crystal-embroidered little black dress for the initiative.

If you happen to be in New York, you can preview the dresses at the Phillips de Pury & Co gallery in the Meatpacking District from 7 September ahead of the auction on 20 September. If you’re not in New York, you can preview the dresses online here.

All proceeds of the auction and sales of its catalogue will go to the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Nationale Contre le Cancer.

You know that auction takes place just a few days before my birthday. Just saying…
