It was needless to say that the Dior "Tiepolo" Ball was a star-studded event indeed! Timed to coincide with the Venice Biennale, the charity dinner and ball-with proceeds going to the restoration and promotion of Venice’s cultural heritage; brought back to life the lavish spirit of the iconic “Ball of the Century” held by Charles de Beistegui in this exact location of the Palazzo Labia in 1951.
Back in the day, Christian Dior and Salvador Dalí were among guests invited to this ball, and together, they designed the costumes for this festivity. Reviving the splendour of this grand and unique event, Maria Grazia Chiuri created a couple of select, exclusive designs in collaboration with two Venetian Houses of great renown: Bevilacqua and Rubelli, for personalities and friends the Dior Maison.
Model Karlie Kloss wore a Dior Haute Couture strapless dress in fioroni velvet, handwoven by Bevilacqua, a pleated tulle skirt with velvet applique and a black velvet cape. She accessorized with Archi Dior earrings in white gold and diamonds, and a Bar en Corolle ring in white gold and diamonds from Dior Joaillerie.
