- Daughters of politicians, filmmakers and billionaire entrepreneurs attended
- Snapped every moment of the night – from the make-up chair to the after party
- They shared all the photos on Instagram, offering a behind-the-scenes look
Pouting mirror selfies, playful group shots, and blurry video clips of a dance floor flooded with blue lights… these Instagram posts could be of any 20-something’s most recent night out.
Only look a little closer and you’ll see the young women in the photos are dripping in strings of jewels and are sashaying in exquisite gowns, many of them made-to-measure by the designers themselves.
And the high-ceilinged room where the fun kicked off is not a student night-club, but a function room in one of Russia’s premiere hotels.
For these young women are no ordinary party-goers – they are this year’s class of debs at Tatler’s Debutantes’ Ball in Moscow, and their parents are among the wealthiest, most influential and most powerful people in the country.
