Le bal des Débutantes, simply known as Le Bal, or, sometimes, the Crillon Ball, is one of the most prestigious and glamorous debutante ball on Earth. It was created in 1992 by Ophélie Renouard, as a fashion event to raise money for charity. It’s held every year in November in Paris.
This year’s Le Bal was held on November 26th, 2022, at the beautiful Shangri-La Hotel in Paris after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. India was represented by H.H. Maharaja Lakshraj Prakash Bahadur of Sirmur (Nahan) and Yuvrajkumari Inayat Inder Kaur of Patiala.
