Due to the impact of the epidemic, after 2 years, the Paris celebrity ball is finally here again!
Tip: It was the top celebrity dance party that made Yao Anna stand out.
Sheep pay special attention to this time.
Because Gu Ailing also participated!
She was officially introduced as "a double gold medalist at the Beijing Winter Olympics and a Chinese freestyle skier", and the French media also highlighted her as coming from China
Before the official start, Xiaotani wore a black casual suit.
When it opened, I changed into a Guo Pei haute couture champagne gold dress, paired with the same color high heels, and the overall look was playful and elegant.
The male companion was Count Felix, one of the oldest families in Europe
After looking at the group photo, the little lamb showed a mother-like smile.
After all, the people who can participate in this dance party are the top ladies of high society, and they have to go through a heavy selection of almost perverted (how perverted is later).
And Xiao Gu is the only big heroine who ranks C with her own strength.
Fight family lineage, fight appearance, fight couture, fight jewelry, how awesome is the Paris celebrity ball? So much so that he rejected Trump's girlfriend twice?
It's time for lamb science, let's gather!
Top celebrities meet in 2022
Who are they sacred?
Yang first gave the sisters a general introduction to the invitees of this Parisian ladies ball, a total of 18 people.
They can be broadly divided into three categories.
The first category is the real aristocracy who is associated with the royal families of various countries.
All roads lead to Rome, and people were born directly in Rome by reincarnation.
For example, Leah, the second daughter of Norwegian eldest princess Martha Louise, is 17 years old and a model.
She wore a Giambattista Valli couture gown with the only crown on her head, and was held by a dance partner who was the son of the Indian princess of Jaipur.
Crooked building, Leah's mother also came that day.
She also has a lot of stories, such as getting engaged to a "psychic shaman" and suddenly deciding to quit the royal family... If the sisters want to see it, the sheep will write a single article another day.
Also nobles were Prince Charles Louis and Princess Helena, the second daughter of Princess Elena of Orléans in France.

Her dress was created by the famous Lebanese designer George Ribeka and has a square neckline and three-dimensional embroidery design, which is more simple and elegant.
The dance partner next to him was none other than his own brother, Prince Philippe Orleans.
By the way, Helena's cousin, Sybil Manou, also attended the ball.
She grew up in Athens and chose a white dress that was very designed and showed her waist, which was simple and generous.
Princess Inayatinder Kaur, a prince of the Indian Partiara dynasty, Raninder Singh, also came.
It's okay not to hear about the family, just know that her family is famous for its jewelry collection and that her great-grandfather was a top customer of Cartier.
Princess Inayatinder Kaur's makeup and dress are very Indian, and the Rahul Mishra dress is a halterneck design, layered and full of aura.
The second type of celebrities who attended the party were generally descendants of the Old Money family.
Eleanor, from the Ford family in the United States, is the great-great-granddaughter of Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motor.
Wearing a haute couture dress by designer Oscar de la Renta, she walked to the center of the dance floor with her dance partner, Prince Alexander Allenberg.
Eleanor's dress is a smoke-grey fluffy princess, while Aruzhan Bimurzina from Kazakhstan wears a Chanel black tight short skirt.
She chose Chanel because her stepfather was David Wertheimer, the heir to the Weidheimer family, which controlled CHANEL.
Many netizens joke that it is not in line with etiquette for people to wear such a short dress, but they advertise their own clothes without spending money, obviously making money, right?
Online pick up Chanel freely.
However, according to Yang's observation, there seem to be more children at the top of the literary and art world who participated in this ball.
Like another Chinese face of this year's ball, famous visual artist Cai Guoqiang and Wu Honghong's daughter Cai Wenhao.
PS: At the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the huge fireworks footprints in the sky were the work of Cai Guoqiang.
Xiao Cai was wearing a crimson three-dimensional couture dress by Iris van Herpen, wearing a crown, with a bright smile, and a little bumping face "Squid Game" heroine Zheng Haoyan.
In addition, Natasha Connery, granddaughter of the original 007 Sean Connery, also attended the ball.
She wears an Alexis Mabille haute couture satin dress with an oversized fishtail hem and a huge gemstone necklace around her neck.
When she kissed her boyfriend and dance partner, Harper Peck, the audience cheered, and sure enough, the whole world loved to coax HH.
In other words, the marriage of rich people is a circle, and Harper Peck's family is also very good.
His grandfather is Gregory Peck, a famous American actor who starred in "Roman Holiday" with Hepburn and was once selected as the 12th greatest actor in a century.
So handsome and handsome
This time, Harper Peck's sister, Ondine Peck-Voll, also arrived.
She wore a pink couture dress embroidered with petals by Elie Saab.
Looking at the group photo, there is a feeling that the petals are scattered on her body alone.
The descendants of the literary world also include Annabelle Zimmer, daughter of Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
Annabelle is a photographer.
She painted punk smoky makeup, and the Gaultier haze blue + burgundy patchwork dress she wore was elegant, and the little girl understood the mix and match.
How hard is it to get into the Paris ladies ball?
To know how difficult it is to get into the Parisian ladies ball, it's worth the sisters to understand its historical background.
Formerly known as the British Royal Court Ball, which was born in the 18th century, it is a place where a group of princesses and princes dance, chat and socialize.
But it was canceled by Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
Although it lost its place in England, the ball gained a new life in France.
On July 10, 1958, the first coming-of-age ball was held in the Orangery of Versailles, and the invited ladies were not only descendants of French aristocrats, but also 50 big capitalists from the United States.

But after the May 1968 storm, the ball was once again forced to stop indefinitely.
It was not until 1992 that it was finally revived by the French social godmother Ms. Ophili Renoa and decided to implement the "invitation system".
In 2005, Forbes also positioned it as one of the "World's Top 10 Luxury Galas".
Over the years, many celebrities and businessmen have wanted to stuff their daughters into the gilding, but in the end they proved that they couldn't buy admission tickets by throwing money.
No way, the screening criteria are too strict!
First of all, there are requirements for family lineage.
The ladies who can participate are either members of the traditional royal family or descendants of celebrities, super-rich or superstars.
Descendants such as Diana's niece, Kitty Spensa, Hemingway's descendants, and Tolstoy's great-granddaughters attended.
Secondly, the age must be between 17-21 years old.
Trump's two daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany, repeatedly asked their dad to send them to participate when they were teenagers, but they were rejected.
The reason is that Trump's grandparents also worked part-time as pimps to make a profit when they ran small hotels (?). ), such a family background is not good.
Ivanka was a bridesmaid at Tiffany's wedding
After Trump became president, founder Ophelia Renoa said that "excellent children should not be rejected because of the fault of their parents."
Although Ivanka is also eligible to participate by ability, it is a pity that she is still past the best age to participate in the dance.
Don't cry Ivanka, and the little princess Paris Hilton will be with you.
The reason for the rejection was that "the everyday image is too bold, the emotional life is too ostentatious", and the sheep can already imagine her rolling her eyes when she knows the result.
It is not difficult to see that the invitees of the Paris celebrity ball are not only more than the family halo and age, but also their appearance, temperament, talent ability, and word of mouth must be considered one by one.
After many screenings, about 20 people participate in the dance every year.
After that, many trials await them.
For example, it is necessary to strictly keep the figure, because everyone's dress is sized long in advance and then sewn by hand.
Before the dance starts, you need to rehearse the process in advance to ensure that the day can proceed smoothly.
In other words, the purpose of the Paris ladies ball is not only to let the girls show their charm, but also to raise funds for charitable organizations.
After entering the 21st century, the selection criteria for "no celebrities" have been relaxed.
In an interview with the French "Figaro", Ophelia Le Rua said:
"I think girls should not be limited to their origins, this ball is not only created for aristocratic princesses, but also for all girls with unique advantages, good cultivation and a sense of mission."
Like Lauren Mabu, the daughter of a taxi driver who once made the news because her IQ was higher than Einstein's.
At the age of 16, she won a gold medal at the Lausanne International Ballet Competition in Switzerland, the second Chinese girl to win this title after 29 years, Yu Hang.
There is also the Gu Ailing we talked about at the beginning, all of whom are examples of winning tickets by relying on their own strength.
Participated in the past Chinese celebrities
Of course, there are many Chinese girls who have participated in the Paris celebrity ball.
In 2003, Wan Bao appeared with Penelope Bay Don, niece of the famous Chinese-American designer I.M. Pei.
Wan Bao was wearing a black dress and a crown on his head
Sit in position C
In addition, Fok Yingdong's granddaughter Liu Zeyi, the gambling king's granddaughter He Jiaqing, Hong Kong tycoon Qianjin Lin Xin'er and other famous families, all attended Paris celebrity balls in different years.
Fast forward to 2017, and the youngest daughter of gambling king Stanley Ho and fourth wife Liang Anqi He Chaoxin appeared.
He Chaoxin has always been regarded as the best-looking daughter of the gambling king, and in September of the same year, she was just admitted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
BTW, the Dior couture she wore that day, is the only one in the world.
In 2018, Yao Anna, who had not yet taken the handsome T route, appeared at the ball in a princess dress.
The sisters must remember that Ren Zhengfei and his wife also accepted an exclusive interview for their young daughter at that time and took a group photo.
Attending the same ball and being the daughter of a business tycoon like Yao Anna is Angel Lee, the daughter of Hong Kong Yingda Real Estate executive Lee Chi Hong (pictured below, right).
More Chinese girls participated in 2019.
There is a well-known Qiu Shuzhen's daughter Shen Yue, who majored in psychology and Japanese at Columbia University, and announced her debut in South Korea some time ago.
Although Shen Yue is now praised by the whole network as the "second generation of the most beautiful star", it was Jet Li and Li Zhi's eldest daughter Li Zhen Jane who occupied the C position of the group photo that year.
Li Zhen began to follow her father to do public welfare at the age of 16, and at the age of 18 she was already struggling to choose Harvard, Yale or Princeton University (who were admitted to them at the same time), is this the trouble of excellent female treasures?
Along with Shen Yue and Li Zhen, there is also Liao Minchong, the daughter of singer Liao Changyong.
She is also only 17 years old, dressed in Guo Pei's couture, and smiles sweetly.
Finally, a little gossip, Dou Jingtong was actually invited.
But because she wanted to wear a tuxedo instead of the dress dress that the dance party required, she ended up doing it.
Hahaha, sure enough, this is Faye Wong's child!
