One of the most anticipated parties of the year, the Power Ball is (more importantly) the annual fundraiser for the excellent Power Plant gallery. Last Thursday, fashion designers, socialites and (yep) artists descended on Queen’s Quay to raise glasses at Power Ball 12. The theme? “The Ball That Started It All”, a “remix” of the best of Power Balls past. (It was an apt choice for a year crammed with retro references, from fashion’s ’90s redux to Hollywood’s love affair with vintage superheroes.)
We’ll bring you in-depth party analysis soon, but in the meantime, here are 10 of our top 20 looks of the night, starting with MTV’s Jessi Cruickshank and Natasha Penzo, of ASC PR, above.
