Le Bal des Débutantes, one of Europe’s most opulent debutante balls, took place inside the Shangri La Hotel. The ball was organized by Ophélie Renouard to raise funds for the cardiology research unit ARCFA of Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital (specializing in care for children with heart defects all over the world) and World Central Kitchen, which provides meals to vulnerable communities during global crisis.
Skye Wong wore Vivienne Westwood to le Bal, escorted by her cavalier Count Ivan de Poligny. Cambridge student Skye Wong looked effortlessly radiant in a design by the inimitable late Vivenne Westwood. Skye’s great-grandfathers from both her paternal and maternal sides co-founded banks in Hong Kong: the Bank of East Asia and Hang Seng Bank – the oldest and largest local banks in Hong Kong. Patti, her mother was the Senior International Chairman of Sotheby’s and just founded an art advisory company.
