Glam­orous, el­e­gant gowns ga­lore at Steps Grand Win­ter Ball

Life & Style Weekend - - WELCOME // INSIDE TODAY - with Natalie Tink

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.
