France's Crillon Ball, whose past debutantes included Dree Hemingway, Amanda and Lydia Hearst, Lauren Bush, Jane Aldridge and the Zobel Girls, below.
We often see lists of the country’s (or the world’s) most eligible bachelors, all with sparkling resumes and dreamy faces that make your mommas want to fix you up for marriage. But today, we’re switching things up a bit by presenting to you these society debs who have the brains, the beauty and the breeding, all in the bag.
MONICA and PALOMA URQUIJO ZOBEL
In 2008, Paloma, daughter of Don Juan Urquijo and Bea Zobel Jr., was the first Filipina to participate in the prestigious Le Bal des Débutantes - the Crillon ball - in France. Her sister, Monica, is Bench’s newest poster girl who designed its new frangrance, Isla Paloma. She was also the country’s representative at the 2013 Le Bal des Débutantes.
ALESSANDRA and EMILY MADRIGAL
19-year old Emily took her spot at last year’s Le Bal des Débutantes where she wore a blush pink J Mendel gown. Her sister, Alessandra, is living the life as a certified Cali-girl who loves Rihanna.
BETINA and SELINA OCAMPO
Betina and Selina, 2 of 3 daughters of supermodel-turned-designer Tina Maristela Ocampo, are taking New York by storm. Betina followed in her parents' footsteps by launching her own luxury t-shirt line and has since landed features in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Forbes, Town & Country, and also a spot on Vogue.com‘s “11 Designers You Need to Know Now.” Meanwhile, Selina works at 3.1 Phillip Lim. The youngest, Juliana, graduated from International School Manila in 2013.
