Most Beautiful Ball Gowns at the 91st Opera Ball

We admit it – we’re hopelessly in love with ball gowns! With layers of weightless tulle and pounds of heavy beads, corsetry to tighten and ruffles to widen, taffeta to stiffen and chiffon to make it flow, a beautifully constructed ball gown is a work of art that can defy physics, bank accounts and common sense. But what art!

Here is our selection of the best ball gowns at San Francisco’s 91st Opera Ball, September 2013. Among the looks our favorite is worn by Deepa Pakianathan, who had a stroke of genius in combining an exquisitely embroidered Andrew Gn gown from his resort 2014 collection with a museum-worthy Alexander McQueen headdress. We’re told that Deepa was the first person in the world to wear the McQueen piece since it was last seen on the Fall 2013 runway.
