Spotlight Event: Cirque 2014 — Carnavale di Venezia


Who doesn’t love a masquerade?

The Founders Junior Council will host Cirque — Carnevale di Venezia on Saturday, February 8, from 8:30 P.M. — 1 A.M. at the Detroit Institute of Arts DIA). The formal masked ball will pay homage to the epitome of a masquerade  — Venetian carnival.

What to wear? Masked winter formal chic. It’s a step below black tie, but a step above semi-formal. Think cocktail dresses, but floor-length gowns are considered appropriate as well. Due to the chilly season, opt for warmer and durable materials — cotton, leather, sequins, heavy crepe, velvet — and definitely pair your frock with pantyhose/nylons.  Also, experiment with vibrant colors and gold accents to play up the Venetian affair.

For additional help on what-to-wear for the event, below is a vogue guide of complete winter formal chic looks via style type: Classic, Glam, Trendy, Romantic and Boho. Since this gala is mask-themed, each outfit is stylishly coordinated with the pièce de résistance — Venetian style masquerade mask. FYI – masks are strongly encouraged… you will be attending a proclaimed mask-theme party. If you are unable to find a mask in time, there will be a limited quantity at the door for purchase.
