The mere presence of the high preistess of Italian design — Alberta Ferretti — was fashion inspiration enough for the dressed-to-kill coterie of women and a sprinkling of men, who were invited to the American Express evening at Tootsies. It was one of the chicest collections of fashionistas to emerge from Houston closets in recent memory.
Yet few, if any, in this corps of fashion elite could surpass the glamorous style of Diane Lokey Farb. For starters, the dazzling jeweled cocktail dress by Oscar de la Renta, from Neiman Marcus, set a holiday tone for her ensemble.
On this chilly night, she added a playful J. Mendel coat that she found in New York. For the ultimate in designer label accessories, Diane wore Jimmy Choo shoes from Bergdrof Goodman and carried a minaudiere by Judith Lieber, also from Neiman Marcus.
