OUTFIT: a night at the Opera

Some experiences are simply #bucketlist worthy. Whether or not you live in Vienna, the Opera Ball is definitely one of those things. Every year, I’ve followed along on TV, but always imagined what I would be like to actually be there. Well, this year I got to experience the ball. Naturally, one of the most important things for the night was finding the perfect dress. Back in December I already shared a little preview, and today I can finally show you the entire look, shot with the stunning Opera in the background! Since so many of you asked: I found the dress at Peek & Cloppenburg and it is by the Jora Collection. The selection of dresses at the cocktail departments of both P&C stores here in Vienna is amazing, and I actually had a hard time choosing just one dress… But once I put on the peachy nude dress with the embellished body, it was love at first sight. Timeless and elegant, just the right amount of sparkle and an almost perfect fit (I had it altered just a little around the waist and the length adjusted to my heels).


Another personal highlight was sharing a box (Loge) at the Ball with the talented designer Atil Kutoglu. Aside from the fact that he is incredibly sweet, he also designed 3 special white gowns for the debutants of the Opera Ball exclusively for P&C. They are SO stunning, and if “regular” guests were actually allowed to wear white, one of his gowns would have definitely been my choice for the evening. We spotted quite a few of the debutant girls wearing his gowns, and I even chatted with one and told her she had to keep it for her wedding as well. All in all, it was such a special experience and a magical night. Motto: Princess for a day (or night).

    Ich kann mich an dein Instagram-Foto in dem Kutoglu-Kleid erinnern, darin hast du wirklich klasse ausgeschaut! Schade, dass “normale” Ballgäste die nicht tragen durften.
    Warst du privat am Opernball oder wurdest du von P&C eingeladen? Das ist schon schön, wenn man die Gelegenheit einmal bekommt, einmal auf der anderen Seite des Fernsehschirms zu sein 😉

    Oh ja, für mich persönlich der Opernball auch definitiv “Bucket list” Material! Das muss so ein wunderschönes Erlebnis sein, noch dazu in so einer tollen Loge! Ich überlege schon, mir für nächstes Jahr eine Karte zu besorgen.
    Das Kleid finde ich auch wunderschön. Es ist definitiv ein bisschen understatet, aber grade das finde ich für den Opernball so stilvoll und souverän! Diese Damen mit den herausgeputzten “Balkonen” und Kleidern, die schreien “schaut mich an, HIEEER BIN IIIIICH”, das ist für diesen hocheleganten Anlass sowieso verfehlt, wie ich finde. Top umgesetzt, Vicky, einfach classy und wunderschön!

    Wow it looks such an occasion – did you get to dance?!


  • […] dress hire? I think I’ll definitely do it again – especially as a wedding guest or for a fancy ball it would totally pay off. You can get Valentino dresses worth over 2.000€ for less than 10% of […]
