My night at the UNICEF Snowflake ball...

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.

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.

  11. Stunning!

    I was wondering how tall are you? Looking at the picture of you and Selita - you look about the same height.

    Edit. I just checked and she is only 5'7". Thought she was taller :D
