In conjunction with the Queen’s 19th birthday in June, The British Club organised The Best Of British 2016 with a comedy night, a pub quiz, ladies’ luncheon, and more. The week of celebrations was rounded up with the grand finale, the Downton Abbey Ball, in Shangri-La Hotel on 11 June 2016.
Needless to say, it was an dynamic evening of cheer and delight!
Funds raised will benefit the Riding for the Disabled Association in Singapore and the Gurkha Welfare Trust in the UK.
Enthusiastic members were all dressed to the nines according to the theme, and here are a few of our favourite outfits!
Janice O’Connor, Cecilia Faulkner, Karan Tilani, Chrisse Olayres, Robert Williams
With Singapore’s perpetual hot weather, a summery style will never go out of fashion. Think bright, cheery colours, floral prints, lace details, and more.
Patrick Fiat, Carolyn Goh, Mary Walker, Steve Walker
Emily Sebastian, Karen Gregory, Kate Jeffrey
In true Victorian Downton Abbey style, some weren’t afraid to go big on the accessories, pairing them with their equally elegant dresses. Go big or go home, they say.
Happy birthday, Queen E!
