“Nicholas Foulke's gorgeous, escapist Bals... chronicles a world where great society figures amused themselves by stepping out of reality and into a gilded milieu.”

BALS: Legendary Costume Balls of the Twentieth Century
by Nicholas Foulkes

From the twilight of the Romanov dynasty through les années folles of Art Deco Paris to the jet-set seventies, Bals explores the nine most exceptional private costume parties of the twentieth century. The most lavish, beautiful book ever produced on the subject, Bals features social commentary both by and about the colorful characters - Truman Capote, Cecil Beaton, and others - who immortalized these extraordinary events, as well as first-person narratives by Jacqueline de Ribes, Hélène David-Weill, and Marisa Berenson.
