The Preservation Society of Newport County will host “Le Bal Francais” at Marble House, modeled after the Petit Trianon at Versailles, which will provide the inspiration for this French-themed evening. Cocktails will be served on the exquisite and expansive back terrace. Dining and dancing will take place in an elegantly decorated tent with stunning ocean views, and music provided by Bob Hardwick and his orchestra. Our friends, Mrs. George F. Moss and Mrs. Peter D. Kiernan along with their Co Chairs, Mrs. Glenn M. Darden, Mrs. Ralph H Isham, and Mrs. George McMillan III have created a francophiles dream, in celebration of the “cottage” built in for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, that initiated the transformation of Newport, into the legendary resort of opulent stone palaces.
For what to wear to such and grand Bal on Bellevue, we found our own inspiration at NET-A-PORTER, in this elegant pale pink Marchesa Beaded Chiffon Gown you’ll look nothing short of a Parisian princess. The illustrious Lanvin Chandelier Earrings compliment the jeweled belt and neck-line on the Marchesa gown parfaitement. Stuffing macarons in your purse can only be an elegant heist with the Charlotte Olympia clutch in hand. Its lace lining and ring clasp make it a sure statement piece. The Jimmy Choo Sandals have a timeless delicacy with their curvy straps and sparkling French champagne color, that completes the ensemble merveilleux.
