This week’s blog post is all about the summer ball, Fête Impériale, which took place for the seventh time this year in the Spanish Riding school of Vienna. For those who don’t live in Austria, Fête Impériale is a wonderful celebration that is always held the last Friday of June and excites guests from all over the world, among them, royal families as well. This year the temperatures were very high and I have to add that I was melting but nevertheless, people seemed to enjoy the festivity, dancing and laughing in premises that were decorated in red and white, which are the colors of the Austrian flag. I was looking very forward to attending a summer ball like this. I have heard so many good things about Fête Impériale from friends and I am glad that this year I had the honor to finally get an invitation. It was the highlight of the month.
Now, let’s come to the outfit. For the red carpet I wanted something glamorous and glittering. Don’t listen to anybody who might tell you that only gowns attract the attention of the people on a red carpet. Shoes are major players in the full look as well. People look at what you are wearing under the gown as well. In the online store of Humanic and in the stores you will find endless choices among glittering and glamorous high heels that will match the atmosphere of a sparkling night like this. My choice was a pair of peep toe high heel shoes that I can also wear in other similar dazzling occasions (a very similar model is currently on sale here!). As for my dress, I chose to wear a simple white summer dress. It had to be long though, i was always reminding to myself. Most of the ladies that attended the ball put on a royal dress that seemed to me more suitable for winter balls but I also noticed some ladies wearing amazing gowns from high end brands.
