Margaret Russell and Eddie Ross at the CFDA Auction

Bloomingdale’s Chairman and CEO Michael Gould and ELLE DECOR Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell co-hosted the Right-Off-the-Runway Designer Chair Auction, held by Bloomingdale’s, Bernhardt, and The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) on Bloomingdale’s 59th Street new furniture floor on January 28.

The charitable silent auction featured nine one-of-a-kind designer chairs to benefit the CFDA Foundation, including designs created by such esteemed designers as Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier, Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, Anna Sui and Diane von Furstenberg.

Each of the nine designers took a traditional Bernhardt “Bloomingdale’s” chair and created a special piece inspired by their own spring 2009 runway collections. In addition, Bloomingdale’s will create its own limited edition version of the chair to be sold in the store, from which a portion of the proceeds of sales will benefit the CFDA Foundation.

Ondine Karady will be featured in the February issue of Cosmo and the March 2009 issue of Traditional Home (see image above).

And, most exciting - Ondine was one of an assuredly small and highly select group of designers asked to submit their portfolios to the office of a certain Mrs. O! While she was not ultimately selected (that honor went to designer Michael Smith), it must have been an huge thrill to be asked!!

And, speaking of the political - here are Ondine and Andrea Schroder - both looking gorgeous of course - attending the Huffington Post Pre-inaugural ball. Ondine was right on trend with her bright yellow clutch (yellow is the color of the year!) Check out Andrea's blog for more inauguration images.
