WHAT TO WEAR
Paris is truly the birthplace of haute couture – a style that blurs the lines between art and fashion. It was the chic of les Parisiennes, along with their incredible attention to detail that truly lifted France to the status of fashion royalty during the time of La Belle Époque. Sparkling, sophisticated, graceful and alluring… The NBS Gala is a black tie affair, though guests are encouraged find inspiration in La Belle Époque theme when making their attire selections. Best Dressed Prizes will be awarded
