Glamorous, elegant gowns galore at Steps Grand Winter Ball
THERE is nothing I love more than a real life Disney princess moment. Big dress, big hair, sparkly shoes and a crown. Now sadly other than my wedding, these moments have been few and far between; that was until I received the best invite in town, a golden ticket to the Steps Grand Winter Ball! The Steps Grand Winter Ball is an annual charity event which brings a room of 400 people together to raise money for people in our community with disabilities. It’s a fun filled night created by Min Swan and her incredible White House Celebrations team with no detail spared and everything done perfectly. For the event I was dressed by award winning couture designer Judy Copley and Ava Jaxon headpiece designer, Rachael Collins. I finished this off with big hair from Evalyn Parsons Hair Salon and super sparkly shoes… and of course my Miss Monogram Silver Metallic Clutch.
‘‘ I was like a kid in a couture candy store, starry eyed by all the stunning styles.
Upon arrival I was on a mission to find my five favourite looks of the evening. With a sea of glamorous, elegant gowns I was like a kid in a couture candy store, starry eyed by all the stunning styles. The ladies especially went to an incredible amount of effort to work with the winter theme. The colours of the night were opulent rich navys, emeralds, golds and silvers. I circled the room like a great white and chatted to my favourite looks, asking them to share with me why they chose their look for the night. After chatting with each of the ladies I decided it was time for a champagne and to enjoy socialising and fundraising for a terrific cause.
