Final prepping before leaving the house...
Hair by the Yves Durif. Make up by Tamara Delbridge.
The press pit that greeted everyone as you entered the venue.
Arriving on the
Singer Katy Perry in an ink blue dress with matching floor length cape.
DJ Mia Moretti: Her ethereal dress was one of my favorites as well as the braided up do - I'll always love this hair.
Unusual metal detail on this white dress which I actually kinda loved.
Model Lily Kwong: My best dressed of the night because of the modernity. Everything was so simple yet polished. To me she was a stand out. One thing I've learned is that what suits one doesn't another and this dress suits her perfectly.
A detail favorite: The simple pleating + a neck grazing bob showing a flash of the neck plus the back detail perfectly. So feminine.
I still love seeing perspex clutches.
The setting at each table.
I was seated at the Barneys table with the CEO of Barneys, fashion designer Prabal Gurung (shown below) plus other notable guests.
With model Selita Ebanks who is an absolute hoot to talk to.
New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham doing what he does best.
End of the night and heading home.
Here's a selection of pictures from the 8th annual UNICEF snowflake ball.
What a night! Michael and I arrived early evening. After I walked the step and repeat in front of a sea of press photographers (gulp!), we both split up to take pictures of arrivals before being seated for the evening. The event honors those who have helped the charity and the highlight of the night was the humanitarian award going to Harry Belafonte (Mum I know you would've loved this).
Polyvore asked me to pick any trends for the night and my favorite was minimal chic: the off shoulder ivory gown worn by model Lily Kwong being my first choice. I also loved DJ Mia's dress by Blumarine (I had to ask her WDUGT).
Thanks to Polyvore and UNICEF for the 'am I really here??' experience and to Valentino for my Cinderella moment. Ahhhh - if only there was another event to wear the other dress.
