Call it the Super Bowl of debutante balls. The Bal Crillon des Debutantes — held annually at Paris’ stately Hôtel de Crillon — brings together the daughters of heavy hitters from the worlds of politics, entertainment, art and fashion. Over the last 17 years, Lauren Bush, Amanda Hearst, Victoria and Vanessa Traina, Kathleen Kennedy, Lily Collins (daughter of Phil) and Olivia Pei (granddaughter of I.M.) have all made their debuts at the gala affair, which is single-handedly organized by Parisian p.r. maven Ophélie Renouard.

On Saturday, 24 more girls, including Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter Scout, will don couture confections (for which they are fitted at least a month in advance) and baubles by event sponsor Adler Jewelry. Here, six of the standout participants.
