Keri and Matthew Rhys attend the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy hosts the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball at Pier 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park on October 6 in Brooklyn, New York. The Brooklyn Black Tie Ball on Thursday raised a record-breaking $1.1 million to benefit Brooklyn Bridge Park. Of course, this being Brooklyn, guests riffed on the dress code: Keri Russell went for a chic velvet Saint Laurent cropped tux and sheer silk Saint Laurent “bow blouse” to match with dashing date Matthew Rhys.
The pair sat at a table hosted by Met Gala guru Sylvana Durrett, with Rag & Bone CEO Marcus Wainwright, Meredith Melling and Elettra Wiedemann. Starwood’s Barry Sternlicht, behind 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, was honored along with Regina Myer. A sold-out crowd of 800 at Pier 2 was so jazzed, comic emcee Wyatt Cenac seriously warned against the excessive “jibber jabber.”
