A little over a week ago, Badgley Mischka payed homage to the film A Midsummer Night's Dream. Last night, the same vision was repeated at the  2012 New York City Ballet Fall Gala.

Upper East Side minimalism was nowhere to be found when style powerhouses Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Olivia Palermo hit the carpet to celebrate the new season at Lincoln Center.

Held at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the gala was hosted by legendary designer Valentino. As a consequence many of the stunning guests wore designs from the Italian great, including supermodel Karolina Kurkova, who chose an over-the-top red confection.

But Anne and SJP went the boho-goddess route with flowy, floral numbers that felt plucked from another era. Surprising some fans, Olivia didn't go with a Valentino creation, instead opting for a two-toned tiered number by Christian Dior.

Though the artful gown captured the hippie spirit of the evening, it felt somewhat overwhelming on the petite - and usually flawless - star.

No matter. There were many showstopping looks. Who says everyone's in Milan this week!
