Law Ball Was ‘#Fun’ For Food, Fun and Fashion, the Ball had it all: Recapping 2013’s premier bacchanalia and Who’s Who at MLS
Volume 3, Issue 7, (Originally Published on Monday 22nd April)
Given the prevalence of diet-inducing (th)inspirational quotes on the internet such as ‘eat fashion, not food’, De Minimis’ (un)official food column is this week about law ball fash 2013.
But first, a quick word about the food. As Kanye West once said, ‘pass the refreshments, a cool, cool beverage’. And although a certain DM columnist indulged in the free-flow of drinks prior to the main course of the evening, it was pretty clear that the law ball’s food far exceeded the standard set by this year’s camp food. Sorry John.
Sartorially speaking, the first thing we noticed was the sheer number of guys in suits.
As for the girls, sequins were the theme of the evening. Inspiration had clearly been drawn from the very pregnant Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account, and rumour has it that the Hashtag Police gave up trying to censor the horrific hashtagging that occurred over the course of the night. Notable examples include #socute, #besties, #mygirls, #ballbabes, and #sogladwechosenottodothetrustsexam-tomorrow.
If De Minimis had to give an award for the best-dressed student body member at this year’s event, the winner would have to be first-year Anthony Pitruzzello, partially because it’s his birthday today (happy bday, boy!), and partially because of this accidental free-verse he delivered the night before the ball (so yes this is biased):
I’ve narrowed it down to three ties
Givenchy, YSL and random
Suits down to bespoke and Hugo
What time’s this f*cking ball start anyway?
I want some f*cking Brownes, though
Or some handmade Ballys
I don’t know what shirt to wear
This is a nightmare
Pitruzzello ended up wearing a Givenchy tie that no one really noticed because he was wearing a scarf. Who wears a scarf to law ball? This guy, and last year’s LSS president Anthony Freeman.
