& Legends: A Portrait Collection
PHOEBE TUDOR Phoebe Tudor can gussy up in striking ball gowns like nobody’s business. Like she did at the Menil’s once-every-five-years gala, which she recently helped helm, and the February fête for the Ballet, whose board she chairs, turning up in a feathered Monique Lhuiller cape to match the Swan Lake theme. What’s also beautiful is her educated, mission-driven approach to philanthropy. Besides art and ballet — she was a dancer as a girl — she focuses on restoration, a good use of her master’s in historical preservation from Columbia. She’s raised millions for the Downtown library and Hermann Park. Next up: the Astrodome. Her “Domecoming” event is April 9. “I’m drawn to things that are lasting,” she says.
