Who does not love to attend Gala Dinners? Dressing up in a fabulous outfit, wearing gorgeous hairstyle, and showing off thoroughly whitened teeth in a beautiful smile – I wish I could do it every day. Well, probably every single day is a little bit too much, but having such an entertainment once in a while won’t hurt my life. Unfortunately, these are just my dreams. Neither I owe a bunch of photos of me posing at this kind of events, nor do I have a decent gown to wear if I were ever invited. Of course, I had fun at some parties, but what I dream about is a major Gala event attended by celebrities and lensed by the most famous photographers. Anyway, it is always nice to have something to fantasize about and this is exactly what we are going to do now. Dear ladies, pretend that you are going to appear at a grandiose dinner soon. And the most important thing to do now is to come up with the most amazing dress you have ever had. This is where we are going to need a piece of advice from the people, who are much more experienced in this kind of things. Novak Djokovich Foundation London Gala Dinner is here to help us to decide on our imaginary outfits!
5 Stunning Looks of Novak Djokovic Foundation London Gala Dinner
Novak Djokovic Foundation London Gala Dinner was held on July 8, 2013 in London, England. It was a fundraiser to provide aid for children in Serbia, who need help the most. UNICEF Ambassador Novak Djokovic commented on the goals of the Foundation:
The Foundation’s vision is to raise awareness of disadvantaged young people in Serbia and around the world, especially those who’ve had fewer opportunities to reach their full potential. With the help of my friends, family and supporters, I hope we can raise the much needed funds required to make a difference to the lives of these young children.
The Roundhouse welcomed a lot of guests, including the charity’s Global Ambassador Sarah Ferguson, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Naomi Campbell, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York, Hayley Atwell, and others. All the ladies shined in their outfits and looked absolutely stunning. Now it is time to get a pencil and make some notes, or even draw a sketch of your future dress.
Kate Hudson is wearing a dress of my dream, so please do not record anything regarding her outfit, for I already reserved it. This absolutely gorgeous mini with a floor length train blew my mind the moment I saw it. This is it, I thought, I found my goldfish! And plus, the frock was created by Elie Saab. It is a double jackpot, I swear! Sleeveless dress in charcoal with an embellished front by my favorite designer – do I have to add anything else? Christian Louboutin pumps and clutch perfectly finished kate’s look.
Another highlight of the evening, Jelena Ristic was supposed to look breathtaking – she co-hosted the event after all. No wonder she looks so beautiful, how can we expect something not outstanding from Oscar de la Renta? Impossible! This diagonal striped blue and white ball gown is paired with a navy Bottega Veneta clutch, a diamond ring and diamond drop earrings. Nice job for a lady whose boyfriend (Novak Djokovic) did not win Wimbledon a day before.
Those of you who prefer cocktail dresses to ball gowns, attention, please! Zoe Hardman rocks a white strapless Rachel Gilbert dress and black peep-toe heels. Elegant and saucy, her outfit is styled by a gold minaudiere and jewelry pieces. I love her cute waves and neat make-up. She obviously knows how to emphasize her natural beauty. Well, it might have been her stylist, hairdresser, image-maker, and a bunch of other people on her crew, who knew it better.
Naomi Campbell decided to prove her nickname of a Black Panther and opted for a tiered knit black gown by her favorite Azzedine Alaïa. Emerald diamond earrings and a beautiful diamond bracelet were the only accessories she really had to add to complete her look. Seems like she didn’t spend a minute getting ready for the event. But this supermodel, definitely one of a kind, is one of the few who can create such an impression.
Another black dress was chosen by Holly Valance, the Australian singer, actress, and model. The beauty showed off her slender legs in a laconic and elegant mini paired with embellished high heel sandals. Holly accented her outfit with a fuchsia clutch, so adorable that I was about to reserve it as well, when I realized it was not going to match Kate Hudson’s dress.
I hope these ladies’ marvelous looks will help you to get an idea of what dress to wear to your big event. Sooner or later it is going to happen, it is just the matter of time. Who knows, maybe you will join those celebrities at the next Novak Djokovic Foundation Gala Dinner. And when your moment of glory comes, you will already know what to wrap your voluptuous body into.
