Anabela says: “To create my Balanchine Ballet Imperial-inspired outfit, I (perhaps surprisingly) thought of Beyoncé – someone with a little street cred, but who could pull off a regal look in an instant, centered around this gorgeous Reem Acra dream of a dress. It’s all about the glorious jewel tones.
One: The Charlotte Olympia Sugarball Pandora clutch picks up on the metallics in the Ballet Imperial tutus and adds a little playfulness to the overall look.
Two: For fragrance, Bullion by Byredo. A musky, heady scent feels appropriate, so this sensual blend of magnolia, leather, sandalwood and pink pepper will do.
Three: I like minimal jewelry for this look, and this ring by Polly Wales features the right gems: green tourmalines and blue sapphire.
Four: These metallic Acne pumps give this look the right amount of edge.
Five: Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion, of course.
Six: Reem Acra Silk Chiffon Illusion V Neck Gown. This gown features the most exquisite beadwork in silver and gold, paired with silk georgette in a glorious shade of sapphire blue.
