Once Spring is on the horizon supporters of New York City’s adored Frick Museum are looking forward to the annual Young Fellows Ball. Since it is the biggest event of the season, now in its nineteenth year,  they also search for the best possible outfit to represent the theme of the year. Inspired by Paolo Veronese monumental Choice Between Virtue and Vice (ca. 1565) fashionistas and important socialites showed which side they are leaning towards. In fashion and style that is.
