Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball

I just recently came across these photos of Truman Capote’s lavish Black and White Masquerade Ball at the Plaza Hotel in 1966. It looks like the star studded attendees are having a fun sexy time at the "party of the century."

I must say that I am heartened by the fact that even Frank Sinatra in a tuxedo with Mia Farrow on his arm, can’t wear a mask without looking silly.

Have a gander at the photos as Truman Capote certainly assembled an impressive guest list of classy folks including William F. Buckley, Frank Sinatra, Mia Farrow, Candace Bergen, Henry Ford II, and Lee Radziwill.

Damn. They sure knew how to party in style. What a startling juxtapsition from the images of today's partys with folks taking shots off the stomach of an STD riddled female vying for attention from the muscle bound bros chanting "chug, chug, chug" as they shotgun Natty Ice in public.
