Celebrity Sightings: Tortoise Time

It was a starry night at last week’s Summer Party on the High Line as handfuls of A-list celebs gathered for the annual fundraising event. This year’s carnival-themed celebration – complete with a fortune teller, boardwalk games, and a dunk tank, raised funds for New York City’s High Line, an elevated park built on a freight rail line. Proceeds will go towards the famed park’s maintenance as well as free tours and activities for the public. Spotted at the party was the ever-fashionable Katie Holmes. Wearing a Grecian-inspired white dress with gladiator sandals, Katie topped off her look with a pair of fabulous tortoise suns.

Tortoiseshell from the hawksbill turtle was very popular in the early 1900s due to its durability and the way it complemented people’s skin tones. In order to protect this endangered species, trade of the natural material was eventually banned in 1973, but the mottled pattern is just as popular today.
