Ballgown ~ masquerade ball ~ Ball Gowns uk

ball gowns uk 01


You feel very romantic when you're in a ball gown. Everyone should wear one once in a while.


~ Carolina Herrera

There is something so exciting about a masquerade ball......


And, after all, what is a lie? 'Tis but the truth in a masquerade.


~ Alexander Pope


The idea of a Masquerade Ball or Masked Ball goes back to late medieval court life, originally designed to celebrate a marriage or mark a point in a royal dynasty, as well as other mysterious and wonderful occasions..


The invited would wear costume and masquerade mask brilliant bold an elaborate, and, as you can imagine, the anonymity this provided to a class that were governed by the strictest etiquette and constricting rules was irresistible..



I couldn't see her eyes behind the mask. Her statuesque pose echoed the city's stillness. Then the slightest of movements - a nod, a shift of the fingers, a footstep - gave away what lay underneath the mask and costume. It was in those fleeting moments that Venice came to be as it once was.

This is not something I would normally post, but I think the idea of evening dresses and ballgowns on the beach is an beautiful one. We so often think of fashion in the context it has been given us, we don't have parties of silk and satin on the beach, I think this is a pity....


I can imagine it now, deckchairs, the sound of the sea, barefoot, gloves and ballgowns.

Once upon a perfect night, unclouded and still, there came the face of a pale and beautiful lady. The tresses of her hair reached out to make the constellations, and the dewy vapours of her gown fell soft upon the land.
