Pippa Holt describes her personal style as "quite loud. I like statement pieces and lots of print and color." And so it was that she chose the striking black-and-white checked Louis Vuitton dress patterned in sequins for the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's "Another Great Night," sponsored by Louis Vuitton.

She was a standout amid the flock of 250 high-style women gathering in a River Oaks chateau for the French-themed fundraiser. Completing her outfit were pumps by Chanel and a Jimmy Choo clutch. "I just wear things that my eye is drawn to and have fun with my dressing," she said, adding that she would wear the dress the following weekend in Moscow at a dinner hosted by Louis Vuitton. "I'm there for work so am excited to wear the dress twice in one week in two very different cities." 

Pippa, a contributing editor at British Vogue, was in town from home base in Dublin, Ireland. She fell in love with Houston during the year her husband was stationed here for work and she returns often to keep up her Lone Star friendships.
