Following in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli of Valentino, Carolina Herrera will be the first American designer to be honored at this year's Lincoln Center Corporate Fund Gala where she will receive the Women's Leadership Award. The evening, which will be co-chaired by Lincoln Center's Katherine Farley, Hearst's Steven R. Swartz, Bazaar's Glenda Bailey, Carmen Busquets, Audrey Gruss, Gabriela and Austin Hearst, Susan and John Jess, Marigay Mckee and Bill Ford, will feature a one-night-only installation at Alice Tully Hall to celebrate the designer's successful 35 years of style.  

"There's a reason Carolina starts with 'C,' because so does 'Class.' Carolina Herrera is class personified. But she is more than the perfect white shirt... she is 'elegant with a dash of daring," Bailey said. "Her contributions to fashion, culture and design make her the perfect recipient of this award. We are thrilled to honor Carolina on her 35th anniversary."

The Lincoln Center Corporate Fund, which has raised nearly $4 million over the past 3 years, distributes support across Lincoln Center's resident arts organizations, as well as supporting their artistic, educational and community outreach programs.
