I like her gown well enough, not sure about the long gloves.

Her date looks like someone Rachael would date.

ETA: It's early and I'm not sure why Patrick Chan is there. Will check later.

The white dress and white gloves are a debutante thing. All my cousins have gone to debutantes. Not being in the South, I never had one. ;) I was always jealous.

Wasn't Patrick one of her escorts?

I guess I don't know much about debutante balls. You get more than one escort?:confused:

The quasi-wedding dress thing creeps me out a little bit....

debutante balls are pretty horrifying, imo.

They look like they had a great time though. Glad they had some time to relax and have some fun between the GPF and their respective nationals.

Can anyone explain this event/concept/tradition to the ignorant? :saint:

Very strange to have 2 escorts and demand their parents attend also???!! :confused:

Here's a brief explanation. It's a charity event where young women from upper class families are presented to society.
