Le bal 2012 trying to stage its final gasp for air…

Well its that time again… Supposedly the event will take place on November 24th 2012 in Paris. Though one never knows… truth is a difficult thing to find with the organizers. I decided to log in and give a little update…

So far the media has basically ignored the press releases that went out October 26 and later. Finally they are seeing the bogus promotional event for what it is. Only 2 french online/local media outlets carried it. One is a freebie you can pick up weekly by subway stations which is mostly ads (for all sorts of things including escorts etc). The other seems strictly online. That other one was especially critical of the event. Basically a bad revue of the passe’ event that this has become. Calling it anachrinistic, a mockery, anti-fashion, etc… and all sorts of French insulting comments that will be an embarrassment to anyone attending and the organizers. International media is staying away. And who can blame them. The obvious has come out. The event has nothing to do with fashion anymore. It has nothing to do with society either. It mostly infringed on what fashion means to most people. And ridiculated the French tradition by honoring southeast asian denim sweatshop producers and asian mafias. It dresses little girls in old lady dresses that were not meant for their bodies… (because it reuses runway samples that were deisnged for skinny models 2x their height)… The suppliers of the jewelers were not French. The guests were not french, or if French, desperate to promote their personalities due to poor PR. The charity was not French last year! .. and by all appearances was non-existent in 2011 or earlier. It was a bunch on non-French trying to play the illusion of being French while missing the point of the industry and quality. Apparently Lauren Bush was a no-show- even though it was allegedly to her charitable benefit last year, she seems to have boycotted. (Just as Demi did the second year once she realized the conflict of interest between her charitable interest and the guest of honor (Silas Chou)).

This year, the Charity is the bogus French known as Enfant d’Asie… the same that did not see the connection between the problems they try to solve in SE Asia, and the honored guests that own the very sweatshop factories(Chou) and brothels(Triad) that exploit the women and children the charity supposedly works to help(it is very easy to research this online- no secrets there… only ignorance or blatant denial of truth). Furthermore, when historical records were reviewed with the European Governmental organization that tracks the donations received by registered charities in France… there were none reported for Le Bal. So either nobody gives money, or the charity does not properly register the funds as required by law (or they were so small they were included in the mediocre ‘miscellaneous’ recording. (something smells like and organized crime cover up here according to a field researcher that has been tracking that and sending me the messages about it.)

New this year… Just as the previous owners of the Crillon fired the le bal organizers(resulting in the cancellation of 2010), and Le Bal had to scramble for extra financial support from the Adlers to hold the ball in 2011. The Adlers finally fired the organizers of le Bal. In their place some odd substitute has come out of the woodwork. A New York resale boutique(of course owned by some uber wealthy persons- no doubt the new sugar daddy for the whole expensive charity event that does not raise any charity funds…. What a fall from grace to loose the last good jeweler… arguments with Mikimoto… then awkward history with the Adlers… and now some NYC business trying to be something they are not… ? You have to wonder what could actually be showcased… but more importantly… it seems that there are better local French shops of better caliber to do this… Why import from New York?!  Eve Cazes is a respected Gemologist in Paris with amazing stock … (Address: 20, rue de Miromesnil – 75008 Paris) just besides presidential residence… Surely this would have been better for a French event?! but it is still a mockery of the original concept of promoting a high end jeweler and reflects the decline of le Bal…Eve said it best many years ago…’ when people had money, they went to Place Vendome… now that they don’t… they come to me’ (meaning shops like me)… and so the organizers, after they have been dropped by all the top jewelers in Paris and Switzerland and Japan… have resorted to a resale shop on the Upper East side of New York city… No money… no class… is it really any different? and did they have to go to New York to do it?!?!?!

Le Bal de Bastards, if it will go on… I am sure will reveal a new set of illegitimate and or legitimate bastards that the organizer has ‘carefully checked the pedigree for’ (not) … Who will it be this year? Please understand… its not really that it should matter in this day and age, yet the organizers distribute all sorts of garbage about the special pedigree and lineage of the attendees. Their lies are ridiculously inflated when the reality translates to lists of girls and families that are in fact opposite of this reality. I am sure this year will produce the same… But if you are going to go around and lie about carefully checking pedigrees and only admitting those especially worthy of it because of family lineage and status, you really need to make sure to do your homework and avoid claiming heirs that are bastards and illegitimate in the eyes of the church, society, and or even social and legal conventions of titles.

Will any of the invited guests actually look on the internet and research the background to see if its worth risking their reputations and actually showing up at this farce?! It is as if being on the list marks the beginning of the end for careers and reputations. Due to the constellation of notorious figures, no doubt every body gets investigated too. But what about the futures of these poor young girls that are the victims of the lies? Will the parent protect them and keep them away for their own good? Or will they allow them to be exploited and made to look like harlots? Or have their families secrets (IE illegitimate birth status’ etc) come out to haunt them for the rest of their lives?!

Questions will be answered by the end of the week… what past dated D-list star will be considered the celebrity? What notorious guest of honor will sit across the table from them to try to improve his or her bad social status or criminal past? Will the organizer still insist on anorexic girls even though her earlier benefactors(Vogue) have banned anorexic models in their publications? Will they be true to that in this case? Will they illegally claim dresses are haute couture even though they are not (And barely any were in 2011). If you care at all… I will try to post an update by the end of the week.
