WEARING: Jenny Packham dress; Burberry dress, Christian Louboutin shoes & Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

It may not be the Valentino gown I envisioned, but it exuded all of the qualities that I felt would’ve been a great choice for her; a flattering black with a slight scoop-neck, three-quarter length sleeves, and dazzling embellishments.
