Joyner’s confection, christened the “Diva gown,” will be an intricately beaded strapless dress with embroidered French Chantilly lace. This year is the School’s 75th anniversary, and the black tie dinner and dance will be attended by notables such as Chelsea Clinton, alice+olivia designer Stacey Bendet Eisner, and philanthropist and longtime ballet patron Coco Kopelman.
