Jolie! Meet the Bal des Berceaux Debutantes

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

On April 29th (the day of the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton) the chicest New York girls will be debuted at the 70th annual Gala of Bal des Berceaux, a Debutante Ball, in the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza Hotel. The black tie evening is being presented by French-American Aid for Children and includes a dinner dance, live auction, raffle drawing and of course the presentation – drumroll – of the divine debutantes.

Formed in 1941, The Bal des Berceaux has been FAAC’s main fundraising event. This year the recipient of the year’s “Children Come First Award” is Chanel who are being honored for sixty years of generous and loyal support. Expect a lot of girls in very chic Chanel dresses.
