  • Description

    More than 1,000 people from New York's cafe society, entertainment and artistic communities gathered at the Biltmore Hotel Friday night (18 Nov) for the 91st Annual Artist and Model's Ball. It was sponsored by a group known as the Kit Kat Klub and the theme of this year's ball was "A Celestial Fantasy".

    Not all who attended paid attention to the theme. There were some models wearing bikinis and a few in "topless" bathing suits who posed for artists during the evening. The artists said they were "mixing work with a little pleasure."
    The King and Queen of the ball were Darrin McGavin and Joey Heatherton, the actor and actress who reigned as "Jupiter and Venus."
    The prize for the best costume want to Mildred and Claire Wallick from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania (That's a real town name) for their "cumulous cloud" costume fluffy white jump suit with blinking lights.

    The ball is an annual charity affair, and the 10 dollars for each ticket goes into a fund to provide scholarships for young artists.
