The wealthy vary from you and me. To start they usually have a significant load of money, mansions, ships, castles, summertime homes within the Caribbean, nice automobiles and STUFF. They arrive at have politicians—entire nations even—and pile the deck within their favor so that capitalism works simply for all of them!
Their Particular events are definitely better catered than ours tend to be…
...and the affluent manage to get thier fancy dress costumes from couture homes in Paris, perhaps not Target.
These shots were taken at Marie-Hélène de Rothschild’s popular Surrealist Ball held at Château Ferrières on December 12 1972.

Another cool benefit of wealthy men and women is they know all the right people, like Audrey Hepburn…
... and Salvador Dali…
... supermodel Marisa Berenson…
...and famous perfumer Hélène Rochas
Obviously we all know where hostess-with-the-mostess Marie-Hélène got her funds from. The Château was already in family and owned by her spouse, Guy de Rothschild. Convenient, that!
The requirements for fancy dress outfits party were “Black tie, long clothes & Surrealists minds” as well as the invite had to be organized to a mirror—it was imprinted backwards—to be read. Friends walked through a forest of black ribbons, meant to be cobwebs, and a maze before entering the ballroom.
