Great article! A lot of other countries seem to have more ball gown and white tie events than the United States. I'm not sure if it's because ball gowns are tied closer into their history or if it's just because there are more traditionalist over there.
Great Britain still has huge events where everyone is required to wear ball gowns and white bow ties. The US does too, but they are usually limited to fashion shows, weddings and operas.
I was wondering if anyone could explain anything about picking style of ball gowns? Like how to pick styles for different figures and heights.
