about 300 revellers who, having dressed to the nines, were all set on a great

The ladies came dressed in a range
of LBDs, some iconic and some barely there – and all were rewarded with plenty
of attention from local ‘paparazzi,’ who snapped photos on the red carpet.
With the music pumping on the dance

Among the winners was Gretchen

winner was Sarah McTaggart, who walked away with a La Prairie gift package.
