Little Black Dress bash beckons

For those who want to glam it up –
a la Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – tonight’s
(Friday, 23 July) free Little Black Dress Party at the Silver Palm Lounge from
7pm is worth attending.

So whether your favourite LBD is a
simple and amazingly cut sheath or a diaphanous creation that shows off acres
of daring décolletage, this event is for you.

The event is likely to appeal to
couples looking for an unusual night out or to groups of girlfriends wanting to
dress to the nines to kick-start their weekend.

“We’ve had a terrific response to
our themed Friday events at the Silver Palm Lounge,” said the resort’s
marketing coordinator, Nancy Harrison. “These events are proving popular
because the Ritz-Carlton consistently pays a lot of attention to getting all
the elements right and ensuring that the atmosphere more than lives up to the

Earlier this year, the luxury hotel
launched their themed nights, which regularly attract upwards of 200 people.
The first event, Sips and Stones, was a heady mix of ice-white diamonds and
champagne. That event was recently followed up by Summer Solstice, which
included a fun bikini fashion show and had a chilled-out beach vibe.

The Silver Palm Lounge is
partnering with SPIN FM in this latest venture.

There’s even a LBD competition
starting at 11pm, Ms Harrison said. Prizes include brunch at The Ritz-Carlton,
luxury Silver Rain La Prairie gift package and other upscale giveaways.

Judges representing the
Ritz-Carlton and SPIN FM will decide the winner and one male attendee will be
invited to be a guest judge, Ms Harrison said.

As well as offering specially made
LBD cocktails and martinis priced $7 to sip as they dance the night away,
patrons can order from a selection of top-grade sushi from the resort’s popular
Taikun restaurant.

“SPIN DJ XS will be playing a
variety of music throughout the event, so we can expect a lively atmosphere, as
well as some paparazzi presence as guests enter,” said Ms Harrison.

Dress to impress, turn heads and walk away with some stunning
prizes. VIP seating for The Little Black Dress Party is available and can be
reserved by calling 943-9000.
