Sweeping into New York City Ballet Fall Gala

So far this autumn, colourful threads have ruled the red carpet but at the "New York City Ballet Fall Gala", which celebrated legendary fashion designer Valentino, the winds changed and celebs pulled out capes, ball gown and dresses with sleeves so long even your granny would approve. The tutus were packed away and it was more a ball gown than leotard theme.

Statement collar

Daphne Guinness had a collar on, not because she was suffering from whiplash, but as a fashion statement to dress up her black dress... and the silver accessory certainly did that! On a side note, this was ANYTHING but an LBD. Unless you mean looooong black dress.

Flowing flowery frock

Sarah Jessica Parker's look was straight out of a fairy-tale, as she rocked a floral print gown with a massive train and co-ordinating cape. SJP even had a flower-adorned headband on.

Red Riding Hood

Speaking of fairy-tales, Karolina Kurkova must have had her Grimm's book out this week because in her long red dress and matching scarlet cape, we had to look twice to make sure it wasn't Little Red Riding Hood we had spotted.

Boyish cut but girly gown

Anne Hathaway might have a boyish pixie cut, but when it comes to clothes she definitely favours girly threads and last night was no different. She sported a long flower-clad gown which featured long sleeves and a flowing train.

Elettra Rossellini also joined the trend of long sleeved frocks. She donned a floor-length black frock with sheer sleeves, silver detail and a gathered waist. As for a ballet dress code, it seems it was long sleeves and capes.

Looks like we have to resign ourselves to the fact that the cold has kicked in and that it's time to pull out the thermals and long-sleeved frocks.
