    Rachael Flatt Presented as a Debutante

    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?

    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.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

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

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

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