Here are few pictures of the girls—


Sorry this is not such a great photo–we are all waiting (im)patiently for more pictures to be posted on line.

Debs 3

These are a few pictures that I took the day before the ball, when the girls were being photographed and doing all of their interviews.  They all looked so beautiful!  

Debs 6 


Jane with Autumn Whitaker and Francesca Eastwood.


Below is a picture I took of Lady Kitty Spencer–niece of Princess Diana.  (and Jane)  She looks gorgeous!  The press was harsh on her.  Way to ruin a girls evening!  I saw her first thing Sunday morning without a stitch of make-up and she is truly beautiful!

    The girls all look so beautiful! And I love Jane’s dress! What shoes did she wear with it? Can’t wait to see more pictures. What an amazing thing to be a part of!

    I LOVE Jane’s dress (I’m obsessed with black & white)— so much nicer than the other Chanel one that was posted online… did she try on a lot of different dresses before choosing this one? Looking forward to seeing more detail shots— it looks so complex!

    This is the closest I will ever come to something so chic and traditional and glamorous! Thank you for sharing all these pics and the scoop! What an experience! Keep the pics coming!
    You and BOTH of your daughters looked sensational!
    Y’all(I’m from Houston) are fabulously lucky!

    I have so enjoyed all your photos from France, but I most love these behind the scenes snaps because they really show off the amazing detail in all those gowns. What a wonderful experience for all of you to have shared!
    Jane is a knock-out in her dress – I also have a thing for classic, classy, black and white, but the details and shape of her gown are remarkable. And you and Carol looked incredible, too – that green is such a fantastic color.
    I’m sure you all must be exhausted from the adventure and travel, so thank you for posting these photos!

    Hello Judy, Thanks for sharing all these photos with us. I’ve kind of been following this topic since you started posting it, and I’ve been so intrigued. I saw that on the main website lebal.fr which hasnt updated for 2009 yet, you can see photos of the debs from 1991, in their 90’s vintage glory. The whole experience looked beautiful and fancy. I myself had a quinceanera over ten years ago, and it’s a really odd experience. As for Paris, I went for the first time in May. I really long to go back. Its such an amazing city.

    Seriously, Jane could not look more cute! That dress is awesome, it gets better and better the more I look at it. It’s very fashion-forward, very youthful, and perfect for her body type and skin/hair coloration. I think it’s the best dress of the ball! The only other dress I like is the mauve (?) one with the black flowers, I have yet to find a good shot of it though.
    Thanks for the wikifashion link, here’s a nice pic with Jane right in the middle:

    Of course just after I submit my prior post I find a better pictures of the mauve dress with the black flowers. On Angela Hicks. I was going to say it’s reminiscent of Lanvin from early 1900’s … and turns out it’s Lanvin. Very nice, possibly too mature for a deb, but very nice. I wish she would have swept her hair up.

    I don’t know why but Jane’s look reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in her long black gown – I think it’s the collar and the white skirt that have a similar vibe. Tres, tres, jolie!

    what an experience! Thanks for sharing it with us. Funny, just last month I was admiring Jane’s Chanel couture in a spread in the Four Seasons Magazine. They shot the dress at the George V, and it looked great, but it looks even more beautiful now that I’ve seen it in action!
    Best holiday wishes to you!
