    A masked ball is always a place of intrigue, but usually you can recognize the people underneath the lace veils and the feathered hats.  

    The Save Venice Gala at the Plaza this weekend was an exception, however — at least where our friend Laure Dubreuil was concerned.  The Webster Miami founder and fashion director arrived wearing one of Alexander McQueen’s famous beekeeper masks, covered in jewels and covering her entire face.

    The good news when trying to pull off the look: You don’t need to pay too much attention to your makeup.  The bad news?  You’ve got to enlist a friend to be your seeing eye dog for the night.   Thankfully, Laure’s fiance, the artist Aaron Young, was up to the task.
