Halloween is upon us and nobody has dressed better than the Rothschild’s. They had professional makeup artists, antlers and birdcages on their heads and some guests were even covered in gold.
On 12/12/72 Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, member of the most powerful elite family in the world, held a Surrealist Ball at Château de Ferrières, one of the family’s gigantic mansions. While these events are usually extremely secretive, photographs of this particular Ball surfaced on the web. In short, it is a mix of an “Eyes Wide Shut”-style masked ball mixed with a Lady Gaga-style pop video. I’m not even kidding.
Recently, Destination Luxury hosted it’s own Surrealist Ball inspired by the 1972 Rothschild Ball in France. Guests were encouraged to dress as creative as possible with Dali paintings as inspiration.
The party was hosted at a Moroccan Riad in West Hollywood and began with a cocktail reception. As the night progressed, the dj turned up the music and the crowd danced that whole night long. It was a night of creativity and inspiration. The costumes were out of control. Here are 20 images that you were not supposed to see.
