THE PARTY Bottega Veneta hosted a cocktail party in its newly expanded store on Michigan Avenue in support of Lyric Opera of Chicago. THE PLAYERS Co-hosted by Elizabeth O’Connor Cole and Trisha Rooney Alden, the party allowed guests—among them Margie Stineman, Jim and Ellen O’Connor, Leslie Hindman, Stephanie Field Harris and Melissa McNally—to shop the store’s two floors of men’s and women’s fashions, fine jewelry and luxury leather goods, especially those made in Bottega Veneta’s signature woven technique, intrecciato. Ten percent of the sales was donated to support Lyric Opera programming. THE HIGHLIGHTS Over prosecco and hors d’oeuvres provided by Food For Thought, guests mingled into the evening. Later, the party continued across the street, where many enjoyed a post-soirĂ©e dinner at RL Restaurant. Photography by Daniel Boczarski
