Teenager, Gossip Girl and PAPER Beautiful Person Taylor Momsen was one of the first-time attendees at last night’s very elegant annual American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala held at the Metropolitan Opera House. Looking especially sweet in her Marchesa gown, Miss Momsen noted it was beautiful, but surprisingly heavy.

Also present and accounted for at this event were designers Olivier Theyskens, Narciso Rodriguez, Tory Burch and Liz Lange and socialite supporters Lauren Santo-Domingo, Aerin Lauder, Marjorie Gubelmann and Serena Boardman, all relishing in the rare chance to sport high drama gowns without looking a trifle overdressed.
