As it is the home to New York Fashion Week, it was only appropriate for the stars to arrive at Lincoln Center in their most fashionable gowns and dressed for the American Ballet Theatre’s 2012 Gala on Monday night.

The event was studded with A-listers in the fashion industry from stylists to designers to models and they all played their best cards when it came to their outfits.

June Ambrose slid her way into the number one spot in a Carlos Miele Fall 2012 gown and Wendy Williams’ spunky personality was joined by a bright red mermaid gown. Model, Alek Wek’s rich, dark skin was framed with a solid and sleek stark white dress while designer, Carly Cushnie’s white ensemble was embellished with jazzy fringes and accompanied by a structured blazer.
