(NEW YORK) "With all the gloom currently around us, it's great to see light, flowers, ladies, and Dior all in one room!” noted Jim Gold at Bergdorf Goodman’s luncheon for Dior yesterday. He was one of the handful men in the room to welcome Delphine Arnault-Gancia, who was the second executive of the famed house to be in the Gotham spotlight this week (Sidney Toledano was honored on Friday.) “I love this city,” she calmly said while proudly showing off her scarlet Dior Joaillerie ring. “I spent so much more time here when I was younger. But Berdgorf is really one of the ultimate department stores. It was just so nice of them to surprise us with beautiful windows.”

Meanwhile, guests like Olivia Chantecaille, Tinsley Mortimer, Kristina O'Neill, and Pamela Baxter were treated to an extravagant BG poached lobster plate and an in-restaurant fashion show of nearly 30 looks from Spring '09. “I've only seen this online!” said Fabiola Beracasa, who is newly-signed with William Morris. Charlotte Sarkozy, who hosted the Dior-sponsored benefit on Friday, was relieved to be off-duty. “Now I could finally relax and take a deep breath!” she said.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, who recently returned from London, took a moment to experienc the dresses with Linda Fargo. “I haven't worn Dior since I was young,” she smiled. “Now, I finally feel like a grown woman.”  Indeed--immediately following the main course, the  young art director rushed back to her office, leaving the tea and macaroons for the more flexible ladies on the second floor.
