Tyra Banks gave good glamour while attending the 2012 Blossom Ball last night in New York City, an annual charity event held in support of the Endometriosis Foundation of America. This important organization works to “end the suffering of women and girls from endometriosis by making a proven ‘state of the art’ treatment the standard,” according to the foundation web site. (Endometriosis causes complications when the uterine lining grows in other areas of the body.)

Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi was a headliner of the event, now in its fourth year, which also attracted stars such as Susan Sarandon and Blondie singer Debbie Harry.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton praised Banks’ earrings and Farrah Fawcett hairstyle, which she wore with aplomb with a daring sheer-skirted gown.

DailyGlow.com also approved of Banks’ “dramatic eyes.”
