Every year, UNICEF hosts the Snowflake Ball in New York City, one of the best black-tie bashes in town. My partner Michael and I scored invites to the gala thanks to Polyvore and UNICEF. Make sure to follow me on Polyvore for more styling tips and outfit inspiration!

Michael and I arrived on the early side and walked down the bright blue carpet, where swarms of press photographers took our photos (gulp!). Inside, Harry Belafonte received the Audrey Hepburn humanitarian award for his efforts (Mum, I know you would've loved this), and I made note of some fashion trends from the night. Model Lily Kwong’s off-the-shoulder ivory gown caught my eye, and I also loved DJ Mia Moretti’s Blumarine dress (I had to ask her: Where Did U Get That?).

I wore a Valentino red dress, so I wanted to go with a strong red lip while keeping the rest of my look a bit more neutral. My makeup was mostly MAC cosmetics, which is my favorite, and I carried the line's Russian Red with me throughout the evening.

Thanks again to Polyvore and UNICEF for providing me with that “Am I really here?” experience, and to @valentino for my Cinderella moment.
