We don’t go to Gala Dinners everyday, yet, when the occasion presents itself we gotta be ready right?
So… what do we wear??? Simple.
Although it usually says “Black tie” on the invitation — which is the most confusing dress codes of all, check this post for more info — there are not so many options available when it comes to a Gala Dinner. Which is a good thing because it reduces the risk of not being dressed appropriately, which can be quite embarrassing…
As a quick reminder, the “Black tie” dress code tells us that we can choose between:
- Evening separates
For a Gala Dinner, there’s only one rule to remember and apply: FULL-LENGTH. Nothing less nothing more. Even if it says “Black tie” on the invitation.
Note: evening separates can be accepted only if the skirt is … a full-length skirt.
Yes this “Black tie” thing can be quite confusing I know. That’s why I am writing this post darlings! Dress codes actually have to be adapted according to the event you are going to.
Here I attended the Gala Dinner given in memory of Princess Grace Kelly at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco – more pictures here!
