Stylist Marcy Carmack took a moment before leaving for New York Fashion week to fill us in on the superbly chic look she put together for Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s evening at the Opening Night Gala of the San Francisco Symphony.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom in Vintage Teal Traina for I. Magnin

Down in LA to work with our lovely First Lady. My first destination was Decades, hoping to find something for the Symphony Opening. Arrived a little early for our appointment to catch up with Cameron Silver, the dashing proprietor, and found out her flight was two hours late. At this point, I told Cameron it was not going to happen.
Next day after some campaigning with the Mayor, she met me at Decades. To my surprise and delight, we found a vintage I. Magnin dress (the iconic San Francisco retailer), designed by Teal Traina in the 60′s! Could there be a better dress for the First Lady of San Francisco to wear to the Symphony Opening? 
(Vintage 1960′s I. Magnin black silk chiffon dress with rhinestone ribbon designed by Teal Traina. Shoes from Mrs. Newsom’s closet.)

    Jennifer looks lovely, elegant yet young and fresh, which is even more wonderful since the dress is over 40 years old.

    Great pick! Flashy, but still demure. Real style is sticking to what fits you best. Something I've learned from Marcy more than once...
